During these years, we've released a record for a label called ethnoworld ( and played a lot, either in Italy and abroad (especially Hungary, where we played also in SZIGET 2004 under the name "Jeff & The Wild Slivovitz), winning several competition of Jazz and instrumental music in general.

Slivovitz: Liver

Read "Liver" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

Slivovitz, and especially this live set, are not for the musical faint of heart. As a live recording, LiveR is “live-r" than most. Recorded in Milan in May 2016, it explodes from their native Italy into your senses with a colorful and frantic sound, a wailing mongrel child that fiercely claims such shared, diverse ...

Slivovitz: All You Can Eat

Read "All You Can Eat" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Freely grabbing inspiration from all manner of styles, the Neapolitan band Slivovitz functions as a high- efficiency musical omnivore, digesting and reworking different aspects of seemingly disparate raw materials into a seamless, organic whole.
