Gottfried di Franco stands for a kaleidoscopical, meaningful and euphoric musical language.
With their compositions saxophonist Stefan Gottfried and guitars Gabriele di Franco create
besides through composed passages as much space as possible for creativity, spontaneous joy of
playing and improvisation and hold up these immanent values in jazz far from shallow
instrumental virtuosity. Stylistically, they meander subtly between their idols Joe Zawinul, Wayne
Shorter and Lee Konitz, an admiring fascination for impressionistic music and their naive
curiosity for free improvised music.
Gottfried and di Franco combine their musical ideas, their visions as well as their stories which
are being told out of the perspective of two young aspiring musicians who perceive the world
with wide-opened eyes.
