Description

Prodigious talent, creativity, and spontaneity secure a prime result.

BassoProfilo... a skillful play on words, but especially a musical 'attitude' which starts from the BASS, without any ties or stylistic constraints. Prodigious talent, creativity, and spontaneity secure a prime result.





The fact that Giovanni Tommaso is one of the most important players in the history of Italian jazz needs no further questioning. This is true today, as it was in the past, confirming Tommaso as a fascinating, sensitive and amazing artist; but the new 'Bassoprofilo' goes right to the heart as the Tuscan bassist pens one of his most intriguing works. Together with two unique talents such as clarinet player Gabriele Mirabassi and accordion player Simone Zanchini, Tommaso moves within the territories of improvisation, melody and lyricism, in a journey that brings out his full talent as composer.


'The name of the new project I have recently formed', says Tommaso, 'is not only an allusion to the fact that I play the double bass, and that my friend Gabriele's last name is Mirabassi. It is also a musical 'attitude' which starts from the BASS, without any ties or stylistic constraints. It's no coincidence we jump from a tune with a contemporary structure to a mazurka, though re-interpreted in a personal manner. With this Trio we offer a repertoire I wrote in total freedom and without inhibitions, which was also inspired by memories of my adolescence. Fortunately, I found Gabriele and Simone who immediately fit in. Their talent and their creativity made everything very spontaneous, and it wouldn't have been the same without them.'


It is truly extraordinary to hear the creative play among the three artists, who are always surprising us as they explore among the styles, genres and ideas with a simplicity that grasps and amazes the listener track by track. A range of colors and moods that give life to this new work released by CAM Jazz, and that makes this album one of the most beautiful in recent years.
