Kekko Fornarelli Trio
Running time: 75 minutes, no interval Kekko Fornarelli Piano/Synthesiser Giorgio Vendola double bass Dario Congedo drums Making their Lakeside debut, Italian ensemble the Kekko Fornarelli Trio is widely admired and has performed extensively across Europe, Asia and Australia in the major jazz festivals. Following the acclaimed 2011 album 'Room of Mirrors' which sold thousands of copies worldwide, virtuoso pianist Kekko Fornarelli's next album 'Outrush' released in 2014 has further enhanced the ensemble's place in the European jazz scene. This is sophisticated but accessible music of the finest quality. An evening that music lovers should not miss. The group initially seemed to occupy a generic space between the emphatic pop-chord potency of the Bad Plus and the guileful storytelling and impressionism of the late Esbjorn Svensson. After 10 minutes, however, it was evident that this classy threesome had very different stories to tell. - John Fordham, The Guardian
