feat. Tom Kennedy, Bob Franceschini

European booking

In cooperation with Emmeci

 

Line up:

Mike Stern - el. guitar/vocal

Dave Weckl - drums

Tom Kennedy - el. bass

Bob ranceschini - sax 

 

One of the most esteemed electric guitarists of his generation, Mike Stern has distinguished himself over a four-decade career that has encompassed musical partnerships with Blood, Sweat & Tears, Billy Cobham, Miles Davis, Jaco Pastorius, the Brecker Brothers and Joe Henderson, as well as 16 recordings as a leader (six of which were nominated for GRAMMY® Awards). 
An electrifying soloist whose blistering chops combine rock-fusion firepower with sophisticated jazz harmonies and his inherently bluesy string bending prowess, Stern has the ability to instantly elevate the proceedings on any gig or session he plays by channeling the spirits of his own personal guitar heroes Jimi Hendrix, Wes Montgomery, Jim Hall and Albert King.

 

For more than 35 years, Dave Weckl has developed and maintained a reputation among fans, peers, and the international music community, as one of the great living drummers. His contributions to iconic music, music education, and the gear that drummers use, are many. "Modern drummer" magazine has inducted Weckl into their Hall of Fame (2000) and named him "one of the 25 best drummers of all time". These honors, in addiction to many more bestowed by the music community, are product of Weckl's commitment to excellence. His dynamic and diverse drumming, which has inspired musicians worldwide, is built on a foundation of knowledge and passion.

ROSA BRUNELLO LOS FERMENTOS

European booking

Except: Belgium

Line up:

Rosa Brunello - double bass, el. bass, electronics, synth, vocal

Michele Polga - Sax tenore, electronics

Frank Martino - guitar, electronics

Luca Colussi - drums

The unexpected sounds, images, scenes that enrich each new production of Rosa Brunello always bring the ability to enjoy nature and art. The spiral research for sound does not aim to change, on the contrary, it is to avoid moving away from beautiful things, from blue skies, clouds and dew.With the release of her first recording work Camarones a la plancha (Zone di Musica, 2012), a prevalent interest in melody is immediately outlined, a lyric that brings back to the warm colors of the Mediterranean. In 2015 she founded Los Fermentos, a project that sees various musicians over the years, but always with the common denominator the attention to sound, whether acoustic or electronic, the desire to create a group with a strong identity, an impact sound defined and compact. In 2016 she released Upright Tales with the international label Cam Jazz. The quartet with David Boato on trumpet, Filippo Vignato on  trombone, Luca Colussi on drums allows the music to unfold with agility and freedom, highlighting a conception of dialogic filigree in continuous movement. After almost two years living between Berlin, Paris and Amsterdam, Rosa wrote new compositions for her third album Volverse – Live in Trieste (Cam Jazz 2018), born from an urgent need of freedom, a need to break down the barriers between composition and free improvisation, written and interplay, in order to freely travel in that space created by the Music, to search the creative inspiration. Volverse – Live in Trieste, recorded live after an intense tour of concerts around Europe, sees confirmed the brass-no-harmonic-instrument-quartet with Alessandro Presti on trumpet and the addition of electronics. With Shuffle Mode, coming out for Cam Jazz on February 15, 2019, Los Fermentos are now Michele Polga on tenor sax and electronics, Frank Martino on guitar and electronics, Luca Colussi on drums and Rosa on doublebass, electric bass, synth and vocals. It’s a quartet with acoustic, electric and electronic sounds, a project that goes beyond the boundaries of genres, whose goal is the interweaving of jazz, rock, dub, electronic and free improvisation, confirming the meaning of a music without boundaries.

Frankie Chavez’s music, surfer and rocker from Lisbon (Portugal),  is a mix between different types of sounds, reflecting all the musical influences he encountered while traveling the world. The result is a kind of Blues/Folk, with atmospheres ranging from clean to rough or psychedelic. Though it’s easy to recognize different musical influences it’s hard to define his music in a single word.
But we can say for sure that it sounds like rock, folk, blues and surf with a portuguese soul
FRANKIE CHAVEZ is an artist with whom everyone is in agreement, everybody speaks well about him, even the reviewers. He fascinates the audience during his perfomance, without being catalogued or labelled
