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.

Album Review: Legacy
“Pericopes+1: the future is already here.” — by Paolo Odello, Il Fatto Quotidiano (Italy)

Legacy testifies an acquired maturity. The trio takes control of the heritage of yesterday’s music, drawing the new contemporaneity.

Grateful for this new concert review by Enzo Boddi, appeared on Italian Magazine MusicaJazzregarding our recent show for the Fano Jazz By The Sea Festival. Enjoy!

Pericopes is a cleverly unorthodox trio, carrying an aesthetic that is outside of strict jazz principles, inspired by post rock, indie rock and punk jazz elements, as documented by These Human Beings (Alfa Music). The rhythmic-harmonic system may vaguely suggest elements of the Bad Plus, EST or Tingvall Trio.
