Press Release

Beppe Aliprandi is one of the historical representative of Italian jazz, musician of which he often forgets us, but who has carried on an original artistic path, starting from cool jazz to happily land the best free jazz of the 60s. He finally found a happy balance between the different styles of jazz, developing a personal and recognizable language, which looks with identical respect Lee Konitz and Ornette Coleman, through the mediation of Archie Shepp. In addition to alto sax, his main instrument, Aliprandi also uses the flute in three of these "live" recordings. Let’s talk about "recordings" in the plural because for «PianoQ Live» the leader has patiently selected the best of two years of recordings made between 2015 and 2017 not with a mobile studio but in an artisanal way, and for this spontaneous and faithful mirror of his current music. This is the most recent permanent line-up set up by Aliprandi, called like all the previous "Jazz Academy", completed by the excellent Davide Corini, piano, Tito Mangialajo Rantzer, double bass - an old acquaintance of the leader - and Massimo Pintori, drums. The three partners seem to interpret Aliprandi’s musical ideas in the best possible way. The saxophonist is also a quoted figurative artist, and are in fact his drawings used both on the cover and inside the booklet. This is Aliprandi’s third album released by our labels, which follows a few years «Blue Totem» and «Ironic».
