A young quintet, headed by Johnny Lapio, born within the context of a music school established in Turin (Arcote Jazz Torino), which chose jazz as an educational tool for the socially complex reality of the district of Porta Palazzo. Directed by Giancarlo Schiaffini, one of the true masters of Italian contemporary jazz, the team presents an openly multiform repertoire, a mobile sound construction where languages intersect, leaving ample room to individual voices. Despite the wide range of materials employed – open blues and sinuous ballads, free jazz passages, reggae diversions, echoes of Art Ensemble and sound notes of European origin - the group proves to be very close in producing its extremely lively music. Johnny Lapio, trumpet, Giancarlo Schiaffini, trombone, Giuseppe Ricupero, tenor sax, Lino Mei, piano, Gianmaria Ferrario, counterbass, Ruben Bellavia, drums.
