Molly Mahoney

I'll conserve my words and avoid giving the full spiel, but Molly Mahoney is more than a client to me. She's the answer to vocal jazz's future, the logical next step from Nicole Henry and Madeleine Peyroux. The crossover artist with a classical voice is releasing a tribute album of sorts, but it's a bit different—it's a tribute to a cousin, Cole Porter.

Molly grew up in a world she credits for taking her as far as she's gone. She began performing with a traveling big band at age ten and hasn't stopped performing since (save for that whole uncomfortable year before the vaccine)

Barba Negri Ziliani

BARBA NEGRI ZILIANI is the trio formed by Riccardo Barba (piano), Federico Negri (drums) and Nicola Ziliani (double bass). The group was born after years of collaboration in projects ranging from contemporary classical music through jazz and author's music. Combining the different experiences and studies of the three musicians, the trio was officially born in 2019 and released their first album TOO MANY KEYS in 2020. ORPHEUS IN THE UNDERGROUND is the second album by the trio BARBA NEGRI ZILIANI. After the first album and a sound research aimed at electronic experimentation and the contamination between structural elements of classical music, the sounds of rock music and the insertion of synthesizers and electronics all based on the classic formation of the piano trio, the group has crystallized in this new work the results of that research.
