Pericopes +1 is a new addition to the project initiated by pianist Alessandro Sgobbio and saxophonist Emiliano Vernizzi. In 2012, they met American drummer Nick Wight  and reunited to record These Human Beings (2015).

With liner notes written by Dave Liebman and Enrico Rava, a buzz quickly spread throughout the international jazz community. Musica Jazz described them as “a cleverly unorthodox trio” and All About Jazz calls them “an authentic surprise”.

After five successful international tours — performing near 100 shows in over a dozen countries across the USA, UK and Europe — Pericopes+1 released Legacy (2018) and continues to tour Europe and the U.K. extensively.
