From the late sixties, bassist and composer Bruno Tommaso is active in the jazz Italian smarter and less trendy oriented scene of the moment. During his long career, Tommaso has collaborated with top level musicians and groups, including: Enrico Rava, Giorgio Gaslini, Gruppo Romano Free Jazz, Paolo Fresu and Italian Instabile Orchestra. With the new album entitled "Le Oche di Lorenz", Tommaso is developing a small and precious work of creative jazz. Musically we are facing a strategic crossroads between jazz, improvisation, modern classical music and literature. The influences declared include names like Duke Ellington, Billy Strayhorn, Bela Bartok, John Coltrane, Maurice Ravel, Erik Satie, Benny Golson and William Shakespeare. All this in the hands of a beautiful and unusual line-up consisting of Martina Grossi’s voice, a clarinet quartet composed by Gianluigi Trovesi, Achille Succi, Nico Gori and Mirco Mariottini, together with the rhythm by Sergio Corbini (piano) Piero Leveratto (bass) and Paolo Corsi (drums and percussion)

Notes
"In fact, the fate of the goose lends itself to a sociological, or even socio-political, reading. Is it different from the perspective of the citizen, mildly but firmly forced to feed themselves with television or other drugs, to become no longer subject, but the object of the (free) market? And what about the lack of deep feelings, and the subsequent frantic and sometimes illusionary search for themselves that , in the current system of communication technology, and therefore inevitably more elusive and less controllable, makes us become attached to the wrong people or the wrong ideas?" Bruno Tommaso
