CARLO CONTI TRIO
h 10 pm
Jazz Night
 
The Carlo Conti Trio was born from a long collaboration between Carlo Conti, Vincenzo Florio and Armando Sciommeri, whose musical affinities range from the jazz of the '20s to contemporary music through funk, pop, classical music, hip pop, African music etc.
The harmonic freedom is the basis of this rigorously plan-free formation and the dialogue between the three instruments is fundamental for the musical direction of this group.
The inspiration comes from the Elvin Jones groups (post Coltrane) of the late 60s but the compositions of Carlo Conti range between muscular modal sounds and romantic ballads with very low dynamics.
The years spent playing and experimenting together led Carlo Conti Trio to have an elasticity and intimacy among the three musicians that makes it easy to use and understand even the most tortuous and difficult musical structures that often ride in their performances.

MAX PRANDI & LINO MUOIO
h 10 pm
Blues Night

The soul soul of Max Prandi crosses the vibrating strings of Lino Muoio's blues mandolin. This unique and original project is born out of respect and sincere love for the roots of the most anchored sounds of soul and blues. Genuine, raw, essential, the Soul Sessions aim directly at the heart of emotions.
When not so much the "thing" to play, but the "how" can make the difference in the age of everything and immediately to fast a "sensitive" listening.
The warm voice of Max Prandi joins the alluring notes of Lino's mandolin
I am dying for a rare experiential journey in the Afro-American culture to be naked from
unnecessary prejudices.

The Piersimone Crinelli OrgAn3 born from the meeting of three musicians who share a musical background firmly rooted in the Hard-bop.

The interesting combination of timbre created between baritone sax and Hammond organ gives the possibility to the OrgAn3 both to express a sound with strong blues connotations and to go into improvised territories of improvisation, with the solid support of the swing of the battery . The OrgAn3 will propose original pieces composed by Piersimone Crinelli and jazz standards arranged for this organ ".

KATIA FIORENTINO TRIO
UNUM
h 10 pm
Jazz Night
 
The transition from silence to sound was the need that gave life to the pianist Katya Fiorentino's project: UNUM.
The musical idea, which stems from a passion for ECM discs whose motto is "to create the most beautiful sound after silence", ranges between the search for sound, improvisation and minimalist development of jazz themes.
Unpublished pieces and standards of the American tradition are reinterpreted with particular attention to the dynamics and with a significant game of interplay between the musicians through an ever new and never planned musical dialogue.
Improvisation is developed with the intention of resounding in the musician and in the listener, always remembering that it takes more courage to put a single note at the right time than a thousand all together.

PAUL VENTURI & SIMONE SCIFONI
TWO MAN BAND
h 10 pm
Blues Night

The one between Paul Venturi and Simone Scifoni is a collaboration born in 2017 that has given life to a decidedly original and unique Two Man Band. These two artists individually have had different paths and careers, each developing their own vision of the Blues.
Paul Venturi, who has been active on the Italian and international scene for years, is undoubtedly one of the greatest exponents of the Blues in our country with his primitive and visceral style, a rather rare element among the Bluesman.
His guitarism and his vocal lyrics perfectly convey the Afro-American language of the 1930s, which only occasionally leaves room for hints of "spiritual".
It is the world of Blind Willie Johnson, Fred McDowell, Charlie Patton and other pioneers of the pre-war Blues.
Simone Scifoni was born instead as a pianist of Ragtime and boogie-woogie, he plays a lot in Italy and abroad, and soon develops an innate passion for musical instruments in general. This characteristic leads him to experiment and find original solutions with drums and percussion, banjo, 3 or 4 string guitars, lap steel and other ethnic instruments. What's even more interesting, which makes it very versatile, is its ability to play multiple instruments at the same time.
Hence the definition "Two Man Band", which precisely sees these two artists with various instruments in tow, often played simultaneously.
Although recent their collaboration brings on the stage a decade of experience, for a unique show, where the musical baggage of everyone helps to shape and shape the sound.
Throughout 2017 Paul Venturi and Simone Scifoni brought their blues to many Italian festivals and clubs, and in the same year they were guests at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis (Tennessee).
Next April 2018 will be released their first work, a record written and arranged together with the title "Prescription for the Blues", which will see them engaged far and wide for the peninsula.

RAGUSA | FLORIO | ZAPPIA
h 10 pm
Jazz Night
 
'My task as a musician is to transform the traditional patterns of jazz - once said Coltrane - to renew and above all improve them. In this sense, music can be a means capable of changing people's ideas. "
A tribute to John Coltrane, undisputed icon and model of contemporary jazz, entrusted to three undisputed musicians of the Italian jazz scene. 'Coltrane was a composer who radically moved the boundaries of music, influencing many musicians and more. Making a tribute to Coltrane means summarizing, recounting his artistic evolutionary path, his compositions, his masterpieces. Sebastiano Ragusa says.
'There is no end - Coltrane still said -. There are always new sounds to imagine, new feelings to experiment. And there is a need to purify these feelings, these sounds more and more, to come to imagine in a pure state what we have discovered. In order to be able to see with greater clarity what we are. Only in this way can we give to those who listen to us the essence, the best of what we are. '
