Atome Primitif

Azzurra Giorgi – voice, Clelia Patrono – guitar and programming, Giacomo Ferrera – bass, Claudio Cicchetti – drums, Special guest: FABRIZIO BOSSO – trumpet

The signature is French, the texts speak English and the formation is Roman: However, eclecticism does not lack this band, which does not hide its traces even in the eleven episodes that make up this first work they present at Jamming 2011, ‘Three years three days’ (etichetta Urban49; distribuzione Halidon).

The title is a double reference to the stage of pregnancy and the record time of recording in the studio; with the words of the same singer Azzurra Giorgi – a voice to the white heat – “three years find their synthesis in three days”. It moves on a musical territory tendingly alternative, but with the right debt to electronics: the result is a warm, wrapping dough. Fabrizio Papitto

Laura Lala – voice, Sade Mangiaracina – piano, Giacomo Buffa – bass, Alessandro Marzi – drums Special guest: JAVIER GIROTTO

Pure Songs is a project born out of a love for the communicative and emotional power of a melody, whether it comes from jazz or from the vast and varied heritage of listening that each of us accumulates and cherishes over the years. The music of Pure Songs is the source of inspiration for the writing of the lyrics, which are therefore closely linked to them, depend on them and are the result of them.
