Imagine on the stage of your stereo set playing right before your eyes a great vibraphone and marimba, 100% matched with impressive drums and a remarkable bass: welcome to the world of musicians Alessandro Bianchini, Simone Brilli and Marco Micheli.

Beatrice Sberna supports - albeit briefly - with her voice on two tracks. The recording took place in February 2023 at Andrea Scardovi's Duna Studio in Russi near Ravenna in Italy. A maximum of two takes per track were recorded by the trio. With a salute to the recording and mastering team: a really excellent job has been done here! For me, this means turning up the volume to the original level of the instruments and letting the music carry me. The tracks are pure jazz with improvisational elements embedded. They flow very well and are also suitable for beginners.

Alessandro Bianchini's musical world revolves around rhythmic and tonal relationships. For this album, for example, he arranged jazz classics from the bebop era, see the titles "Invitation" and "Bud Powell". He composed five of the seven songs himself. On "Song for Peace," his classical training shines through, as melodic elements of Johann Sebastian Bach's music were woven in. Bianchini cites Bill Evans, Scott LaFaro, Paul Motian, Charlie Parker, Bud Powell, Egberto Gismonti, and Chick Corea, to whom the Latin jazz borrowings of the title track "Grazie Armando" can be attributed, as influential figures in his work. So, in his music, different genres unite. I particularly like that Alessandro Bianchini goes ahead with a great lightness and a considerable wealth of ideas. His wording: "The timbral choice of the mallets that change according to the song, the idea of putting vibraphone and marimba together, and the almost maniacal emphasis on dynamics are the elements that, in my opinion, give the record a jazzy sound, with important and recognizable deliberately refined elements. Another aspect is certainly evident to listeners, namely the presence of an element that I personally always place in the foreground and that is the basis of improvisation and interplay: Timing. It is precisely the timing that allowed me to create a natural, almost instinctive feeling with the other members of the group: Marco Micheli on double bass and Simone Brilli on drums".
