Collettivo Apostrophe

Collettivo Apostrophe: Marco Giaccaria (flutes, violin, bouzouki), Eugenio Mirti (acoustic and electric guitars), Sergio Ponti (drums) ABOUT COLLETTIVO APOSTROPHE by Eugenio Mirti Around 2012 Christmas time I was living a bizarre artistic life: my main musical project, Ropa11, was (and still is) stopped because of the success of Paolo Inserra, the drummer, that was hired to play with the famous Italian pop band Baustelle. So now he is very busy and it’s very difficult to plane new projects with our band. At the same time my long term collaboration with Jazzit magazine gave me the chance (and still gives me) to hear billions of records, leaving me two kind of feelings: 1) In case of beautiful records, I am left sad with no self-esteem left at all or 2) in case of horrible or unuseful records I am left worried that my work could be filed this way! So it has passed a long period of artistic holiday during wich I spent a lot of time in teaching, I became the proud dad of two daughters and I’ve done many other beautiful things without an urge to communicate. So finally Christmas time 2012 arrived; I had knew Sergio Ponti in a music school where we both worked in, and since I am an admirer of his style and of his deep musical culture, I wanted to create the chance to play together

Corrado Abbate

Originally trained as a classical pianist, Corrado Abbate quickly turned to jazz, soon demonstrating a distinct aptitude for composition and arrangement. He has always loved leading small combos, playing mainly his own compositions, together with exciting jazz renditions of numbers from various musical styles. During the Eighties he led a number of groups highly active on the Torinese scene ("Arsis", "Modal Jazz Quintet", "Sharp Eleventh"), playing everything from hard bop to modal, from fusion to free-funk. Many talented young musicians, now well-known professional players, like Luigi Tessarollo, Marco Tardito, Roberto Regis, Davide Graziano and others, emerged from these groups

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.
