Three Tsuru Origami
Saturday, 23 September 2023
Hexagon Theatre, MAC
Gabriele Mitelli's new trio has a clear mission statement: to distance itself from cliché, and to take the path less traveled.
The music is a journey to the heart of improvisation, where jazz is once again a gamble - an edgy practice where risk-taking is central to progress. Mitelli’s bandmates are two great English musicians, for whom noise and revolt are a way of life: bassist John Edwards, and drummer Mark Sanders.
This trio is a godsend. This trio, which Gabriele Mitelli put together, consists only of bass, drums and trumpet and it is one of the most exciting things I've heard in jazz lately!
Flavio Massarutto, il Manifesto
Spontaneity and rigor, control and abandon for a performance that has all the freshness of a concert. Between memories of historical free jazz and new landings for a trio that has just been born and seems to have been playing together forever.
