The Mary Go Round to Vicenza Jazz 2018 part 1

The fist Mary Go Round, started on the 10 May 2018 in Thiene at the Auditorium Fonato with the amazing France singer “Camille Bertault” which is also a theatrical show at her concerts. She was noted on YouTube with the video she did singing John Coltrane song “Giant Step” doing all the sax solo with her voice with over 200.000 visualized. This was in 2015, the year after she come out with her first CD “En Vie” (Alive) and this year she come out with her second CD called “Pas De Gèant”. She sung the aria of “Goldberg Variations” written by Johann Sebastian Back, with her voice which is an instrument, very appreciated by the audience. She is also a pianist, and showed he ability that night, she started at the age of 8 also having her father a jazz pianist helped her mature her love for jazz. The night after she sung at the Bar Borsa in Vicenza to a full crowed.






 Second Mary Go Round, was with “The Sun Ra Mythic Dream Arkestra” on the 11 May at the Teatro Olimpico, with Marshall Allen on sax and director at 93 years old. A very colorful scene with their afro- futuristic costumes and free jazz inflamed the theater. With the trombone, trumpet and sax that while playing went off the stage among the audience that warmed even more the whole Teatro Olimpico. A concerto of “The Sun Ra Arkestra” is something that needs to be seen and heard at less ones.






Third Mary Go Round just happens to be “The Sun Ra Mythic Dream Arkestra” on the 12 May. Why, just happens to be, it’s that I spoke to David Hotep which is the guitarist, why that he was the only one of the band not to stand up during the concert and play. It was because he left his guitar strap at home, so I offered to bring him my sons for the concert of the day after. So I did bring him the strap and he got me in as a guest. You may think that “The Sun Ra” would repeat the set list of the day before, no way, they kept two songs and the rest where all different. And here again the enthusiasm that they gave to the audience was as strong a fresh as ever and David Hotep got up on his feet and played his guitar.  
It’s not finish here, after the “Sun Ra” had finished their concert because it had started at 18.00pm. Everybody went to the Piazza Dei Signori for the two free concerts. To star off was “Thomas De Pourquery & Supersonic” his France sax player, with special guest the Italian trombone Gianluca Petrella one of our best at it. The audiences were already clapping hand at the sound check, so just imagine when the concert started. Influenced by “Sun Ra” and his African rhythms which his drummer Edward Perraud was a machine at his drum set and Gianluca Petrella did his solos with Thomas that were very appreciated. The whole Piazza didn’t want them to leave the stage so they did a couple of bis to keep them satisfied.   
Then on stage came “Odwalla & Saturnian Visitors” which also, let say they are sons of “Sun Ra” influences, here the African rhythm is at its best with two drummers and three percussionist. Also the two vibraphones at one point of the concert added their percussionist to all the rest. To add to the scene two dancers that danced to the incredible sound of all the drums and percussions.








Fourth Mary Go Round, claimed by “Joe Lovano & Dave Douglas Quintet” on the 13 May, they played at the most beautiful indoor theater in the world, “Teatro Olimpico”. Both Lovano and Douglas have been to Vicenza Jazz in the pass but this time there instruments did there cross over, sax on one side and trumpet on the other, a great combination that gave to the night in the Theater it’s max.



This brings us to the Fifth Mary Go Round, to the 14 May at the Teatro Olimpico with the “Orchestra Del Teatro Olimpico” directed by Alexander Lonquich that I was unable to go.

Another Year Of Vicenza Jazz

It’s 23th edition of Vicenza Jazz given the name “The Birth Of Youth” and like every year it’s in May, it begins on the 10th and finishers on the 20th. You can enjoy Jazz all over town from The Piazza Dei Signori, to the Teatro Olimpico to the Teatro Comunale, to the Jazz Club Trivellato to the streets, so everywhere you go you will have Jazz in the air.

Vicenza was not a town with the Jazz tradition, not like other town in the Veneto area, it had a slow but significant start. In the begging came Anthony Braxton in 1979 but Vicenza was not mature then. The first to put down the foundation of Jazz in Vicenza was “Perigeo” a Prog Jazz group of the 80’. The Jazz lover had to wait until 1983 when Italian musicians like Enrico Rava, Roberto Gatto, Dado Moroni and Paolo Fresu started performing at the Astra Theater. Then in 1989 came Herbie Hancock at the Palasport and unfortunately with Chick Corea in the Piazza a minute before the concert it started to rain. Then at the “Totem” they started with guest like Joe Lovano, The Oregon and Michel Petrucciani, then with the help of Mr. Turetta the owner of “Totem”, Bill Evans and Steve Coleman where brought into the Piazza. Jazz came to Vicenza through the official main door to the oldest indoor Theater in the world, L’Olimpico, with “Rava L’Opera Va” with Enrico Rava and his band with the Orchestra of L’Olimpico. One year later, in 1995 Michel Petrucciani always with the Orchestra of L’Olimpico that was an enormous success, now Vicenza was mature for Jazz.

But for it to come a real “Festival” it had still to come, with the help of Mrs. Francesca Lazzari of the department of culture and with Riccardo Brazzale as a collaborator and a young entrepreneur Luca Trivellato thing where to happen, the “New Conversation”. Why the “New Conversation”? The inspiration come from one of Bill Evans recordings “Conversations with Myself” so the idea was born that musicians like Paul Bley could come to the Olimpico theater and with other musicians and their instruments they could conversant with each other. It had started as a week end festival in 1997 but little by little it started to grow and in 1998 it would start on Monday and finish on Sunday. Then Jazz started to be played in the bars, in the Piazza and just about on every corner of the center of Vicenza.


Vicenza Jazz every year would give a name to their festival like in 1999 the celebrated the centenarian birth of Duke Ellington and twentieth death of Thelonious Monk in 2002, two of the most greatest Afro-American composers. In 2000 was the time of the “Giubileo”, that of 2001 Italian American woman, 2003 “To the Foundation of the Blues”, 2004 “Improvisation”, 2005 the tenth birth of Vicenza Jazz, it was given a very poetic name “The Bird Fly’s to Great Mother Africa”.

Jazz clubs started to open in Vicenza like the Jazz Cafè Trivellato that’s in the Piazza Dei Signori under the Basilica Palladiana, with the help of the Panic Jazz Club of Marostica and Luca Trivellato this was possible. So during the Vicenza Jazz Festival you can eat and listen to Jazz at the Jazz Cafè and not only, all years round too.


To give you an idea of what Vicenza Jazz has been doing in the past, let’s flout around the years together, Jazz lover will centrally know these musicians. In the year 1997, was the time of L’Ambrosia with Giugliano Fracasso singing the song of Duke Ellington “Freedom” thought the streets of Vicenza to fill the air of Jazz and at the Olimpico the voice of Abbey Lincoln. The next year 1998, came Dave Brubeck Quartet and the solo piano of John Lewis too finish Lee Konitz, then the voice of Sheila Jordan. In 1999 David Murray with his drums in Contrà Barche, and at the Olimpico Ron Carter. Not to forget the Quartet of Milt Jackson with Pietro Tonolo, Steve Swallow, the unforgettable “The Goldstein” with Paul Motian. The year 2000, Lee Konitz was to come back to Vicenza but fell ill and was replace by Enrico Rava that found himself driving an unforgettable jam session with Phil Woods, Jim Hall, Enrico Pieranunza, Larry Grenadier and Paul Motian at the Olimpico. To 2001 came Ray Brown & Lee Konitz that got well after his heart operation. Around midnight Buddy De Franco happens to bump into Bill Frisell & Paul Motian and the violoncello of Ernst Reijseger, what a night. What to say about Maria Schneider and Paolo Fresu in orchestra doing “Sketches of Spain” of Miles Davis. This brings us to 2002, with Joe Zawinul from Weather Report, Dave Douglas, Brad Medldau, Miroslav Vitous, Uri Caine, Richard Galliano. Then Paul Motian and his Electric Bebop Band doing the music of “Monk at the Town Hall” directed no less than Riccardo Brazzale. In 2003 the big event was to bring Pat Metheny & Charlie Haden in duet and The Chicago Columbia College that went to Monte Berico. Dear Maynard Ferguson that is no long with us R.I.P., Randy Weston, Sam Rivers, Paul Bley, and Joe Lovano. 2004 was the year of Take 6 and the Latin Big Band of David Murray that played in the Piazza, here there was a little problem with the visa because most of the musicians where from Cuba.

Killin’ Baudelaire: Four girls who connect rock and metal Music with their deep passion for literature, and found this brand-new all-female project in 2015.
“It Tastes Like Sugar” is the first studio EP, published by Bagana Records in october 2016. It has been recorded at the prestigious Magnitude Studios in Seregno (MB), with the artistic production by Titta Morganti (Mellowtoy).
The brand-new EP has reached great reviews and approvals from press/journalists and workers in the Music sector (Metal.it, Metallus, Metal In Italy, Metalwave, Italia di Metallo, All Around Metal, Rockrebelmagazine, Artistsandbands, Iyezine, etc.). To mention the interviews @ Radio Lombardia and Sky network:
• MagSky - Interview to the band
• SkyUno - Martina Leo & the Tattoos
The band has also taken part in a ROCK TV program, SKY Channel 718.

"It Tastes Like Sugar" is strictly connected to the symbolic image in the front cover and to the related concept behind, too. It’s a wordplay that connects immediately to that image, but also consequently related to the concept of Love. A Love that is supposed to taste like sugar, but like every human expression, reveals also a dark side...

The band has already played on the most prestigious stages all over Italy and continues to collect great approvals, show by show. Videos: 
- “Wasted” is the first single taken from the first EP, released in june 2016. It has reached more than 3000 views in just one week. “It represents the winner’s fighting shout, who had the strength to get out of a negative situation or relationship, and who can now look finally proud behind”.

Released in September 2016, the rock version of the worldwide famous song originally from Lana Del Rey.

Frizzi 2 Fulci – U.S. Tour 2017
Live Tribute to the Films of Lucio Fulci
With Italian masters composers Frizzi & Fasciani

Here’s another tour that takes its fundamentals from the Frizzi 2 Fulci Project, conceived many years ago in the mind of the Maestro and finally brought to the stage, both Italian and international, in 2013. 
That year marked the incredible beginning of a series of events held in great venues all over the world. 

Now, the time has come for a new evolution of the show, embracing not only the iconic scores composed by the Maestro for cult movies in the thriller and horror genres directed by his beloved friend Lucio Fulci but going a bit deeper into the horror, thriller, prog rock and funk career of the Maestro, augmenting the concert program that scored so many sold out gigs with the robust support of new orchestrations. 

People will be enthralled listening to new suites dedicated to “The Beyond”, “A Cat in the Brain”, “The Psychic”, “Zombie Flesh Eaters”, Manhattan Baby and many other Lucio Fulci movies alternated with adrenaline-powered performances featuring his astonishing productions for other great filmmakers of both millennia. 



A new show’ series, fueled by a great band of 6 top-quality musicians (Roberto Fasciani, Riccardo Rocchi, Alessandro Errichetti, Federico Tacchia, Giulietta Zanardi, Alessio Contorni) in the US  artistic landscape, strongly based on the fantastic and mysterious with a great inspirational soul behind it, an artistic godfather: Lucio Fulci.

Fabio Frizzi is one of the most celebrated Italian film composers, and respected in the same iconic pantheon as Ennio Morricone, Bruno Nicolai, Goblin and Gianni Ferrio. Frizzi's influence has been cited by a vast range of contemporary artists ranging from Boards OfCanada to Wu Tang’s RZA, and he is heavily referenced by the rising starsof synth-horror including Umberto and Zombi. 
Frizzi's work also resonate with cinephiles as Quentin Tarantino used the theme from “Seven Notes in Black” for his soundtrack to “Kill Bill” VOL 1.




The US Tour will encompass 9 total locations:

October 24th – BOSTON – Coolidge Theatre
October 26th – PORTLAND – Hollywood Theatre
October, 27th – DALLAS – Texas Theatre
Ocotber, 28th – CHARLOTTE – The Booth Playhouse
October, 29th – NEW YORK – Music Hall of Williamsburg
October, 30th – NEW YORK – Music Hall of Williamsburg
October, 31st – SCHENECTADY – Proctors Theatre
November, 1st – PHILADELPHIA – Underground Arts
November, 2nd – NEW YORK – Nitehawk Cinema (Guest Appearance) 

“My dream was to become a composer of soundtracks; if I have made it happen, I think my friend Lucio played a crucial role.” – Fabio Frizzi

“I really believe in the magic of music, in all the emotions that can bring to people… and the message could be different because everyone live the music in his own way. So the most important thing is to get something… as for me, to give it. Music let people live better, let them dream and unite; my goal is to create something in which the audience can get involved in, to share my love of music with people and have a connection with them, like talking to each other with no words but sounds and atmospheres” – Roberto Fasciani

Mirko DeFox and X-HERO to celebrate the 30 years since the release of the debut album, dated 1987, publish a EP entitled "Cosmic Virgin" with two unpublished tracks, "My ship knows" and "Long legs Razorblade" recorded in the middle of the years 2000 at the Vision Studios in Vicenza.

As Mirko tells, the band's repertoire was moving with melodic Hard Rock tunes with finest Prog Metal and Fusion.
Mirko's constant search for stylistic solutions away from homologation with trends and genres of the moment, leads him to create a different, visceral album where the glories of the past are barely perceptible, and the shades, riffs and arrangements so they become a chaotic collection of unexpressed moods.
For a variety of reasons, the album will never see the light but after a decade, some recordings will be released in the form of EP.



The song "My ship knows" is an explicit metaphor on the journey of humanity in search of a truth until now denied, while "Long legs Razorblade" evokes contradictions of sometimes life-threatening, sometimes deadly and relentless life.
With Mirko DeFox the line-up was completed by Herman Tonini (current band axeman) and Paris Bertoldo on guitars, Davide Pangrazzi on drums and Ivano Pangrazzi on bass.
The X-HERO performed live in northern Italy and in Slovenia and Croatia, to remember the performances of the 2005 and 2007 editions of the 80's Italian Metal Legion Festival, in 2005 the 80's Italian Metal Legion WINTER's Season, concerts with Bud Tribe, Rain, Dark Ages, Heat, Rosko's.

The visonary cover artwork is made by the extraordinary RRR Remi Real Rock for ANL.

The official release date is November 19, 2017, and the product will be distributed around the world on the best digital stores, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Deezer, Google Play Music and many more.
