The young Italian double bassist Giuseppe Millaci, while pursuing an activity of sideman, today presents his first project as leader, " Vogue Trio " and the album " Songbook " recorded on September 29th, 2017 with the new independent label Hypnosis Records). This first album is a collection of original compositions, exploiting tones of the blues, poetic melodies and rhythm of rock. A music filled with sensibility, space and elegance and with strong acoustic sounds.
The trio is completed by the French pianist Amaury Faye, talented soloist and outstanding improviser without speaking about the sharpness of Lionel Beuvens at the drums.
Giuseppe, bass player, and Lionel, drummer, have known each other for over 10 years, and the alchemy that they immediately felt has never wavered since. Their encounter with Amaury, pianist, at a jam session only amplified this dynamic.
With a lot of lyricism and as much freshness, but avoiding romantic clichés, this trio reinvents often very swing-like pulses. Between these three, there is an actual osmosis, sense of friendship and sharing to be felt. Listening to their music, you are transported into an elegant world full of surprises. Travel aficionados will find themselves at home, with hints from Central America, the East and the Mediterranean, mixed with a undeniable bop feeling. A jazz that can both move and relax you, as the trio rows along.
