Renato Podestà Trio
Renato Podestà’s “Foolish little dreams ”: New Orleans groove and fearless interplay
Dates: 28 – 29.6, 2019
FIRST TIME AT JAZZASCONA!
Known as a member of Sugarpie and the Candymen, guitarist and arranger Renato Podestà returns our shores with his trio, to present his latest work, “Foolish little dreams” (IRMA Records). Inspired by a long journey across the United States, his most recent project is a profound immersion in the tradition of New Orleans and the New York contemporary scene. This duality is reflected in the record’s repertoire and arrangements, in a harmonious fusion of complexity and playfulness. A reference to sources of his inspiration like John Scofield and Peter Bernstein, the organ trio format makes for a groovy, full sound, allowing freedom of expression and instantaneous communication among the band members.
