Matteo Addabbo Organ Trio feat. Giulia Galliani
The trio of the Sienese organist Matteo Addabbo, composed by Andrea Mucciarelli on guitar and Andrea Beninati on drums, meets Giulia Galliani on vocals.
The "Matteo Addabbo Organ Trio" born from the desire to recreate the sound of traditional jazz formations with the Hammond organ, taking as reference the works left by American organists such as Jimmy Smith, Jack McDuff and Larry Young. In this sound research the trio expresses itself with a new compositional freshness thanks to original pieces that can be traced back to the most current jazz styles. The compositions of the trio offer an articulated musical path, where you can perceive the numerous musical influences of Matteo Addabbo and his partners, which refer to both contemporary artistic models, such as the trio of the American organist Larry Goldings, but also to the cultural baggage Italian given by the music for films of the '60s, by immortal composers such as Piero Piccioni and Piero Umiliani. A new project, therefore, rooted in the jazz tradition, but open to the future.
Giulia Galliani sings with the trio for several years and in May 2018 the collaboration led to the release of Giulia's first solo album "Song for Joni.
The concert will be a presentation of the best songs born from the ensemble work of the four musicians.
