Legacy: “Regular Irregularity” — by Jürg Solothurnmann *****

The young Italian-American trio definitely belongs to a new generation, they do not discard anything, but deconstruct and shift everything, almost like portraits of Picasso or Bacon. Regular irregularity.

Interview: Legacy
“Pericopes+1: Gemeinsam eintrocknen” — by Hans-Jürgen Linke, Jazzthetik (Germany)

pericopes-1-in-jazzthetik-01-02-2018-mq

Wow – we are blown away to share this interview feature in the Jan/Feb ’18 issue of Germany’s Jazzthetik Magazine! In November, editor Hans-Jürgen Linke reached us with some questions in anticipation of our extensive album release tour in Germany this March.

Our new album, Legacy, will be released internationally on 2nd February with Auand Records on all of the typical platforms, so check it out!

The album Legacy brings together both the playful intuition and the fixed, compositional work.

“The chemistry,” says Alessandro Sgobbio, “was right from the start. Without any particular effort, we had a creative energetic connection between us. Together, we like to create a fresh creative language which is a bridge between our European and American influences”.

Nick Wight: “This chemistry continues to allow space for me to develop a more “un-orthodox” drum style that approaches the compositions from a melodic and textural idea as well as a “feel good” groove or deconstructed rhythmic concept”.

Emi Vernizzi: “We live in a postmodern world where past, present and future happen at different levels and speeds. Our way of dealing with influences is constantly changing.”

We are extremely happy to share three new reviews of our latest album Legacy. Many thanks to Stefano DenticeLance Liddle and Roberto Paviglianiti.


Compelling, at times gripping material. Intriguing.

LANCE LIDDLE (BEBOP SPOKEN HERE — UK)

Legacy manifestly winks at contemporary jazz, impregnated of avantgarde undertones whose common intention — kind of a trademark for Pericopes+1 — is to constantly search for innovation, courage and intellectual honesty.

STEFANO DENTICE (ITALIA IN JAZZ – IT)

These 10 original tracks higlight the mutating sound of this group, presenting some evocative ballads but also frenetic rhytmical passages. If Vernizzi is taking care of the foreground parts, Sgobbio uses Fender-Rhodes’ electric soul in order to obtain further esthetic tensions.
