Concert - Event posted by elena
Friday, March 15th, during the XXVII season of Tradition in Motion
Alessandro Lanzoni, Thomas Morgan and Eric McPherson
A super trio on the stage of the Sala Vanni
Three musicians of different generations meet to present their new album: it is the young pianist and revelation of Italian jazz Alessandro Lanzoni , the charismatic double bass player Thomas Morgan and the extraordinary drummer Eric McPherson .
The trio, led by Lanzoni, was born from the common attitude of the three members to build together an experience marked by the continuous search for fusion and interplay. What is most striking about the group is the way of interpreting the songs: there is a need to respect the jazz tradition but at the same time there is the courage to take risks to build something truly original.
Their record, recorded in the winter of 2018 in New York, is formed mainly by standards and will be released this month on the occasion of the presentation tour, which will also be held on Friday March 15 in the Sala Vanni of Florence (concert beginning at 9.15 pm).
The Florentine pianist Alessandro Lanzoni , born in 1992, has been under the eyes of critics and the public for about ten years, thanks to the depth with which he expresses his poetry based on an encyclopedic musical culture. Winner of the 2013 Top Jazz award for best new talent of the year for the magazine Musica Jazz, Lanzoni can be placed fully among the leading figures of Italian jazz. Strong already of a rich curriculum that has seen him play and record among others with Lee Konitz, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Ben Wendel, Joe Sanders, Greg Hutchinson and Roberto Gatto, the pianist has imposed himself for a long time to the attention of the musical world jazz.
Thomas Morgan is one of the most talented double bass players in the world. Graduated from the Manhattan School of Music, where he studied with Harvie S and Garry Dial, at just 36 he has already worked closely with Bill Frisell, Steve Coleman, Craig Taborn and Jakob Bro.
With an inventiveness and an unusual musical sensibility, Eric McPherson , born in 1970 in New York, is an extraordinary drummer. He has worked on recordings of the latest Jackie McLean and Andrew Hill albums and is the stable drummer of the Fred Hersch trio.
