Emanuele Maniscalco – Piano
Francesco Bigoni – Tenor saxophone & clarinet
Mark Solborg – Guitar

Francesco (A) is Italian – love takes him to Denmark in 2009. Emanuele (B) is Italian as well – music takes him to Denmark in 2012. Mark (C) is Danish – with deep latin roots.
A and C often play together. A and B already know each other well. C and B feel it natural to meet and set up this constellation. A, B and C enjoy playing concerts in small churches. Improvisation is a vital process for A, B and C.
What you are reading may not be too helpful for understanding the music they play. Then imagine a contemporary chamber ensemble with some dirt in it – a small choir where each voice raises from the ground.

A potentially-folk project.

Slightly less mysterious:
This trio is about knowing the music well enough to navigate freely and improvise, as a unit, with and around the written material. To instantly react freely to each other and create music with authenticity and presence. A musical attitude that the group has worked intensely on in recent years. The debut album holds a poetic and very melodic chamber musical expression contrasted by textures, preparations and microtonality. An almost architectural blend of abstraction and warmth is a strong ambition and trademark of the group. This music does not care about genre or style. It is essentially about musical conversation and made for ears interested in dialogue.
