Maniscalco/Bigoni/Solborg (DK/ITA) har efterhånden været en del omkring. Portugal, Italien, Berlin, London og nu kommer de forbi Odense.
A and C often play together. A and B already know each other well. C and B feel it natural to meet and set up this constellation. A, B and C enjoy playing concerts in small churches. Improvisation is a vital process for A, B and C.
What you are reading may not be too helpful for understanding the music they play. Then imagine a contemporary chamber ensemble with some dirt in it - a small choir where each voice raises from the ground.
Slightly less mysterious:
This trio is about knowing the music well enough to navigate freely and improvise, as a unit, with and around the written material. To instantly react freely to each other and create music with authenticity and presence. A musical attitude that the group has worked intensely on in recent years. The debut album holds a poetic and very melodic chamber musical expression contrasted by textures, preparations and microtonality. An almost architectural blend of abstraction and warmth is a strong ambition and trademark of the group.
This music does not care about genre or style. It is essentially about musical conversation and made for ears interested in dialogue.
★★★★★ (5/5) ..a masterclass of texture and microtonal subtlety. .. -Dave Foxall, Jazz Journal, UK
★★★★★★★☆ (7/8) This music is blown around the listener, left free to chase melodic ideas, silences, little abstractions, timbral mutations, timeless sweetness … What a beauty!
- Enrico Bettinello, Blow Up (IT) Uncompromised music, alternating airy moments and brightly lyrical episodes, all defined by a simple and straightforward writing which luckily avoids self-satisfaction and virtuoso dribbling. The three musicians’ skills are clear from the first listening and shine even more through the next ones. - Carlo Boccadoro, Internazionale (IT)
[…] hypnotic unshakable phrases and melodies […] one thinking organism that is capable of poetic beauty and strong spirituality. […] The trio is unique in it's integrity, melodies and contemporary-poetic atmosphere. What a stroke of luck! - Bjarne Søltoft, Jazznytt (NO)
