Monome

Monome is a contemporary-Jazz Trio based between Pisa (Italy) and Berlin (Germany), which has been around since 2006, despite the fact that the three members have never lived at the same time in the same city. Since then monome has been developing a refined interplay and an extensive repertoire which is entirely made of original compositions influenced by old masters like Thelonious Monk and Wayne Shorter and by contemporary Jazz musicians like Kenny Werner and Mark Turner. Also the whole modern rock/indie scene has become a big influence on the composition and arranging process. Matteo Anelli, bass player, has been playing with a number of jazz-related projects (Grandmother – Mingus Project) as well as traditional music from Tuscany with Gatti Mezzi and Acoustic Blues with Betta Blues Society. Piergiorgio Pirro, piano player, was awarded in 2008 with the scholarship of “Siena Jazz”, and he had a chance to study with Kenny Werner, Phil Markowitz and Omer Avital

Monome, a piano-led trio from Pisa, shares its name with the Monome, a computer interface device popular with makers of electronic music. Whether this is deliberate or coincidental is unclear, but Monome the band makes acoustic music without the need for its electronic namesake. Its eponymous debut album, recorded in late 2011 and early 2012, features ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
