Read "Aqustico vol 2" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Il secondo volume di Aqustico conferma l'appassionante ricerca documentata nel precedente album, con qualche diversità: a quattro anni dal quintetto di fine 2012 il trombettista beneventano compie nuove esplorazioni, privilegiando la relazione col fisarmonicista Carmine Ioanna (a cui si aggiunge in un paio di brani Giampiero Franco alle percussioni) e concedendo qualche spazio all'elettronica.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
