The Concerts



Rosario Giuliani – sax, Fabrizio Bosso – trumpet, Alberto Gurrisi – Hammond, Marco Valeri – drums

Two outstanding Italian musicians, Fabrizio Bosso at the trumpet and Rosario Giuliani at the sax, lead the quartet completed by Alberto Gurrisi at the organ and Marco Valeri at the drums, performing in a repertoire of great interest, both of standard and original compositions, with strong rhythmic connotations.

An emotional journey that arises from the human and musical encounter, which has now lasted for more than a twenty years, of two great performers of Italian jazz, masterfully supported by Gurrisi and Valeri, also considered out-of-class in the national jazz landscape.




Enrico Pieranunzi – piano, Luca Bulgarelli – bass

Pianist, composer, arranger, he has recorded more than 70 CDs in his name ranging from piano alone to trio, from duo to quintet and collaborating, in concert or recording studio, with Chet Baker, Lee Konitz, Paul Motian, Charlie Haden, Chris Potter, Marc Johnson, Joey Baron.

Multi-awarded as best Italian musician in the “Top Jazz”, annually nominated by the magazine “Musica Jazz” (1989, 2003, 2008) and as best European musician (Django d’Or, 1997) Pieranunzi has brought his music on stage all over the world performing at the most important international festivals, from Montreal to Copenhagen, from Berlin and Madrid to Tokyo, from Rio de Janeiro to Beijing.Since 1982 he has travelled several times to the United States giving concerts in various cities including New York, Boston, San Francisco.

He is the only Italian musician ever and one of the very few Europeans to have played and recorded several times in the historic “Village Vanguard” of New York with Marc Johnson and Paul Motian (Camjazz, 2010).He was awarded in 2014 the Echo Jazz Award – German equivalent of the American Grammy – as Best International Piano Player for his “Live at The Village Vanguard” with Marc Johnson and Paul Motian (Camjazz, 2010).The prestigious American magazine “Down Beat” included its CD “Live in Paris”, in trio with Hein Van de Geyn and André Ceccarelli (Challenge), among the best CDs of the decade 2000/2010. Top Jazz 2020 as the best musician of the year.




Danilo Rea – piano, Paolo Damiani – bass

Damiani and Rea have played together for over 30 years in different formations. Damiani’s CD “Al tempo que farà” (2007) winner of 3 referendums as best album of the year sees Rea at the piano.

In this new project the encounter between the two takes place on the plane of the melody and an artistic collaboration that over time has turned into a deep friendship. The repertoire includes original compositions of the two artists and very well-known songs of different origin punctually betrayed.

Tradition and betrayal go hand in hand, treason is in this case the highest possible proof of love for a heritage that others preserve with philologically perfect interpretations or massacre with operations of dubious taste.

Here, on the contrary, the developments refer to paths that refer to an idea of multiplicity as Italo Calvino describes it in American Lessons: What matters in a narrative is not its closure into a harmonious figure but is the centrifugal force that springs from the narrative, the plurality of languages as a guarantee of a non-partial truth.



Fabio Zeppetella – guitar, Roberto Tarenzi – piano, Jacopo Ferrazza – bass, Fabrizio Sferra – drums

Handmade is an emotion that brings us directly into the soul of the author with 9 tracks (except the 8 of the great John Coltrane) all composed “hand” by Zeppetella whose new project finds him leader of a quartet of international jazz musicians: Roberto Tarenzi at the piano, Jacopo Ferrazza at the bass and Fabrizio Sferra at the drums.

The originality of the sound that springs from the fingers of Fabio Zeppetella in this his latest project seems to be created by the artist and cesselled to his image. Equipped with an unparalleled technique and great musical sensitivity, it uses a unique and personal language, the result of a study always focused on the search for a style that over the years has made its own.

He came to elaborate a completely original sound, going from the tradition and music of masters like Charlie Cristian and Wes Montgomery to evoking the be-bop and the hard-bops of the sixties. In his phrasing you discover the dominant aspects of a language never obvious, sometimes virtuous sometimes sweet but always essential.

Its dominant characteristics are the sweetness and strength inherent in the original way of interpreting music, in which the desire to seek a virtual link with poetry is evident.
