Jonathan Gee writes;
Just a note to say I have some gigs with the incredible altoist from Puglia, Gaetano Partipilo who I believe deserves your attention. Please check out his work.
In January 2018 a new project was created between London and Bari. A meeting of two artists both known to the public as musicians of passion in the true sense of the word. Endowed with a unique touch and a personal style, Jonathan Gee, originally awarded ‘Most promising newcomer ‘ by The Guardian, is one of the leading pianist/singers on the UK jazz scene, appearing regularly at Ronnie Scotts, The QEH and On Radio 3’s In Tune, and he has 8 self penned cds to his name. He has worked in the bands of Pharoah Sanders, Mark Murphy and David Murray. Check http://www.jonathangeetrio.co.uk
He is joined on this tour by the saxophonist Gaetano Partipilo, known for his original style characterised by a strong mixture of avant-garde and tradition. His latest album Daylight on the label of the godfather of Italian jazz, Paolo Fresu can be found here.
The quartet is completed by one of the best rhythm sections on the European scene today : Guiseppe Bassi on double bass and Fabio Accardi at the drums.
This is an explosive, dynamic quartet taking a radical, contemporary look at the music of The Beatles complemented by compositions of the two leaders.
