The trio composed by pianist Stefano Falcone, drummer Giuseppe D’Alessandro and bass player Ilaria Capalbo outlines an idea of music that is eloquent and purpose-driven, originating from the band’s cohesive sound and strong creative urgency. A fearless attitude to improvisation and extemporary practices together with grounded composition work make up for a bold sound that strikes as being equally fresh in approach and rooted in the idioms of jazz tradition and classical European music. The personalities of the band members, who have been collaborating in other projects for the last few years, are different yet complementary: Falcone’s intellectual, narrative piano playing is met by Capalbo’s expressive intensity and keen sense of melody while D’Alessandro’s chiseled, sensitive drumming brings to the foreground the propulsive force and rhythmic variety of this ensemble. The first recorded work of the trio is a concept album dedicated and inspired by the life and vision of jazz pianist Lennie Tristano, which includes elaborations and arrangements of some of his tunes as well as original compositions by all band members.

Expressive, virtouoso and playful – words commonly used to describe the artistry of Swedish Hammond organ player Andreas Hellkvist. Rooted in the soul jazz tradition he has developed a unique style of his own. With his two hands on the manuals and stops and a rarely seen left foot groove on the pedals he utlilizes the full potential of the Hammond B3. Andreas discovered the Hammond organ in his late teens during the organ jazz revival of the 90s. There and then, he decided to focus entirely on this instrument, to learn all the ins and outs and how to use it in its entierty. The soul jazz originating from the organ scene of the 60s were his first inspiration and still remains the core of his playing, but his current style reflects a significantly wider spectrum of influences
