Fall Updates

It’s been a long time since I wrote on this page, I’ve been playing a lot with Patrizia Laquidara’s band.
Now it’s time for some Fall Updates:
Helga Plankensteiner’s Plankton band is ready to join again and play some crazy shows in Germany, starting tomorrow in Nürnberg and the day after in  Karlsruhe.
November will be quite busy: a special impro concert in Torino at Nesxt Festival ; Høbama trio will play a couple of concerts and record some new music featuring Anders Christensen on double bass; Plankton will tour nothern Italy.
And, more unexpectedly (to me at least), I’ll record my first blues record.
Life is quite surprising.

Patrizia Laquidara, new shows coming soon.

I’m usually quite disappointed at my performances, expecially when  music is recorded and I have the chance to listen back to it and complain for my choices or anything else. But I have to admit there are some songs in Patrizia’s last record I’m particularly glad of, I wouldn’t use the word “proud” because I think the result has less to deal with my credit than with the human and musical environement in wich those performances happened.  Sometimes my feeling about those songs has something to do with the bitter taste they have, or the groove that I really enjoy, or the arrangement, or the meaning…
One of these tunes is Sopravvissuti, for sure and for all the reasons listed above.
This is the official video:

This said, we had a great time in the concerts we have played in the first part of the record promotion tour and we are getting ready to hit the road again for  next summer gigs so I put here a short extract of what we have experienced so far, to share with you all and invite you to come and listen and see her.

Very lucky to be part of Sweet Alps Orchestra – “Heroes: quando i soldati marciano” a Mahler-Project by Michael Lösch. Sweet Alps Jazz Orchestra presents a suite composed of praphrases of Gustav Maher’s songs about lifes of soldiers. “Revelge”, “Wo die schönen Trompeten blasen”, “Der Tambourg’sell” and “Schildwaches Nachtlied” are re-elaborated and merged displaying the more contemporary aspects of advanced harmonies and complexed rythms  of the great composer.
May 5th @ Tenuta Rosengarten Lana, ore 18.00.
