A Concert

Something’s appeared on the web, documenting a recent performance I care a lot.
It is actually Andrea Ayassot’s music, manipulated and arranged on the spot by the author himself on soprano saxophone and the artists formerly unknown as Eat The Worm: me, Giulio Corini on double bass and Alfonso Santimone on piano. I refrain from expressing more about these people in order to avoid becoming too sentimental and cheesy.
Just, listen to the concert bellow, maybe you’ll like it.
Let me know if or not.

The concerto was hosted by Jazz On The Road at Der Mast theatre in Brescia.

It’s been a warm loving feeling being back on stage with Romina Kalsi.
We’ve been through a few years of cooperation inside Rocky Wood, sharing together smokey vans, sandwiches on the highway, boozes, goose bumps, beauty and breakdowns, than -after the storm- our road temporarily splitted. I can’t say I was happy that way, though unavoidable.

We’ve met recently to bring on stage some of her music she’s been working on in the last years with Tobias Granbacka. With him on keyboards, Daniel Fagerudd on guitar and Eve Lucchini on bass we’ve recorded the following concert in the TV show “Tropical Club”. With only a few hours of rehearsale and a completely new band to put together I think we did a pretty good job.
You may agree or not, anyway I’m happy I’ve been there by her side.

Valentine’s Days

It’s a sweet february, the weather is so nice.
I’ve just spent three days in Sardegna playing with Patrizia Laquidara’s band among very nice people, supported by the best driver in the world, and enjoying delicious food and friendship, then flied back to Ferrara right in time to meet my buddies Alfonso Santimone, Giulio Corini and Andrea Ayace Ayassot, who’s music we are playing during these incredibles last days.
That music is really different from anything else I’ve ever played, short tunes with multiple layers. It is kind of simple but not easy, rich of thoughts but full of a primitive, almost tribal, feeling. I had to work it hard just to be able to ride it a little without falling (too often) on my face. This adds quite a thrill to each performance and a lot of surprise for each of us, and for the listeners too.
We still have a gig to play in Lugano, tomorrow, and I’m very excited to be back in that town, where I’ll see some faces I love and haven’t had as many chances as I would to see, since the end of Rocky Wood experience.
