Pulcinella is claiming for an extravagant music, generous and dynamic. Throught a very special sense of story-telling rising from the compositions and arrangements, this quartet offers an access to an inventive and original musical world. Hard to classify, the musical world of the band is full of colours and unpredictable characters (Achab, Titus Pulo, La Belle-Isloise…). Pulcinella plays an omnivore kind of jazz, fond of rock, tango, musette and eastern Europe music… all in order to serve musical stories and sparkling colours pictures.

Pulcinella: Bestiole

Read "Bestiole" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Pulcinella shares its name with a character from the Commedia dell'Arte--he figures rather charmingly on the band's website--and declares its mix of jazz, rock, tango and Baltic traditions to be “delocalised jazz."

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
