A rock-solid trio session, with a top-shelf Italian groove pedigree as the group features two members from Berardi Jazz Connection, and the pianist from Quintetto X! You might remember those two groups from their more club jazz-oriented projects from the previous decade or two,but this time around, all three musicians are in a straighter jazz vein, yet still one that's filled with plenty of rhythm! The piano, bass and drums come together fantastically here with Pietro Vincenti on acoustic keys, Camillo Pace on bass, and Francesco Lomagistro on drums.
Berardi Jazz Connection was birthed by Francesco Lomagistro’s well-known drummer/percussionist idea to put together all the experiences that come from his passion for Afro – american music, the ‘groove’, and the synergy between rhythm and melody. The voyage started many years ago in the center of Taranto (south of Italy) on a street called Via Berardi where, Francesco had an apartment using it as a rehearsal studio. After many different experiences as “sideman” and different concerts around the world with both artists, in the year 2005 Francesco decided to “give life” to this project involving other Italian talents and international sp guests.
