This is probably the clear message of the first record, “Social Music”, by the young guitar player, composer and bandleader, out in April 2019 by A.MA. Records, featuring Gadi Lehavi on piano, Felix Rossy on trumpet, Giulio Scianatico on double bass and Andrea Niccolai on drums.
The band, nowadays is composed by young rising musicians who are, individually, also leaders and award winners: Federica Lorusso is on piano, Giulio Scianatico is on double bass and Egidio Gentile is on drums and cymbals.
The group has already won prizes and took part in festivals such as the Young Jazz Festival and Competition in Targu Mures or JamTheFuture organized by JazzMi in Milan.
The repertoire blinks an eye to the tradition of 60s hard bop, Joe Henderson, Herbie Hancock, as well as incorporating the sound of this generation, including hip hop, rock and soul music.
