Leading UK pianist Jonathan Gee brings a new project created in early 2018 between himself and three great musicians from the Puglia region of southern Italy. It features the new rising star of Italian jazz on alto sax, Gaetano Partipilo with one of the most dynamic rhythm sections on the European stage today, Guiseppe Bassi on double bass and Fabio Accardi on drums. Their repertoire combines the reimagining of The Beatles tunes with compositions by Jonathan and Gaetano. This music has been recorded and album release news is imminent. Jonathan Gee, originally awarded ‘Most promising newcomer’ by the Guardian, is one of the leading pianist/singers on the UK jazz scene with eight self-penned CDs to his name. He has worked in the bands of Pharoah Sanders, Mark Murphy and David Murray, and was last at Cambridge with Tim Whitehead. Gaetano Partipilo is known for an original style characterised by a strong mixture of avantgarde and tradition. He has played with everybody from Jason Moran to Dee Dee Bridgewater to Billy Cobham. Guiseppe Bassi, one of the most in demand bassists in Italy for the last 20 years, has a number of highly praised albums to his name as well as having graced the bands of Lew Tabackin (recently at Pizza Express, Soho) and pianists Dado Moroni, John Hicks and Mal Waldron. Fabio Accardi has been heard at North Sea Jazz, Hong Kong Fest, in Chicago and Paris, often as a band leader.
