Lisipi

Three musicians with different backgrounds met in a home studio and realized it was the moment that they had been waiting for all their lives: Liliya Akhmetzyanova on piano; Silvio Canargiu on bass; Pierpaolo Frailis on drums. Liliya is a classically trained pianist. She graduated from Russian conservatory. Always hated jazz and thought that all jazz players are pretentious nerds. Ironically, she met Silvio Canargiu, who is a jazz musician, fell in love with him and, automatically, with jazz. Silvio Canargiu started his professional career in 1992 with sardinian pop bands as guitarist and later singer/guitarist. Went to Sanremo for a pop festival with Nicola Marogna then he played for a long time with Stefano Puddu in France recording a couple of albums such as Zamballarana with Jerome Casalonga's 15 elements ensemble.

Möbius Strip

Möbius Strip is the name of a young Italian progressive jazz-rock band from Sora and its surroundings, made of Lorenzo Cellupica (keyboards), Nico Fabrizi (saxophone & flute), Eros Capoccitti (bass) and Davide Rufo (drums). They got their inspiration in the object of the same name: since a Möbius strip geometrically connects the two sides of the same surface by starting a path on one of them, this also became the purpose of the musicians, to combine different styles and influences. The result is to be heard on MÖBIUS STRIP's self-titled album, published in the year 2017 on the Musea Parallèle label

Yakir Arbib

Yakir Arbib was born in Jerusalem on March 6th 1989, and started playing the piano when he was 4 years old. At 7 years old he enrolled at Tel Aviv’s “Stricker Conservatory Of Music” where he studied between the years 1996 and 2007 taking baroque recorder, trumpet and ensemble playing in addition to classical piano repertoire. During those early years Yakir performed in many concerts/recitals in the conservatory and has received a number of scholarships. At the age of 14 his career took on a completely different turn when he attracted the attention of the only jazz teacher at the conservatory at the time who started then giving Yakir jazz lessons, and in 2004 he was admitted to the prestigious “Thelma-Yellin Highschool of the Arts” in Tel Aviv where he continued his studys in jazz with some of israel’s most influential artists such as Amos Hoffman, Eli Degibri, and the Cohen brothers

Salza

Simone Salza's music ranges from classical to jazz, from sound tracks to pop. He has interpreted as a soloist some of the most moving melodies the Italian cinema has produced recently: notably the theme composed by Nicola Piovani for the 1997 film Life is Beautiful (La vita è bella) by Roberto Benigni, which won an Oscar for the “Best Original Dramatic Score”. He has collaborated with musicians and composers of the calibre of Ennio Morricone, Franco Piersanti, Pino Daniele, Carmen Consoli and Fiorella Mannoia.

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.
