FABRIZIO BOSSO & LUCIANO BIONDINI “FACE TO FACE”
Face to face: references to the jazz aesthetic, free improvisation, and Mediterranean influences as the meeting ground for musicians Fabrizio Bosso and Luciano Biondini.
In their “Face to Face” jazz duet Fabrizio Bosso and Luciano Biondini fuse and intermingle jazz aesthetics, free improvisation and Mediterranean influences. The eclectic trumpeter from Piedmont and the sagacious accordionist from Spoleto engage in an empathic and profound musical dialogue. The energy and pathos that characterize their musical temperaments permeate from start to finish a project of superb artistry. A dialogue between peers, with no leadership, where interplay is the means of achieving an intense and profound musical discourse.
Motivated by their mutual admiration, Bosso and Biondini had long nurtured the idea of joining forces in a duet project. Their large spectrum of stylistic references that range from bebop to traditional Mediterranean music, together with their natural inclination for free improvisation and attachment to performing as a duet, all converge in a rich, fruitful and riveting musical encounter on stage and in their “Face to Face” recording, released on Abeat Jazz in 2014.
Regarded as one of today’s foremost accordionists, Luciano Biondini is valued for his artistic maturity, impeccable touch and deep knowledge of modern jazz, which he reinterprets in his own special way. Fabrizio Bosso, internationally renowned for his versatility and sensibility, and who has also achieved artistic maturity, accompanies Biondini in his musical experimentation, pervading it with his virtuosic impetuousness and the delicate alchemies which characterize his playing.
Face to Face is another record released in 2012.
