Jazz made in Italy, for a high-profile reunion.
15 years after the birth of this group, the music of the acclaimed album “Naked” (2009) returns to the European stages.
The music of Massimiliano Rolff and a quartet of Italian Jazz “All Stars” are the ingredients for a concert that looks to the future album, due out in 2024, and to the future of what we love to call Jazz.
Four musicians of absolute excellence perform original music with more open compositional structures, fertile ground for a good game of interplay, an ideal field for solo runs of beauty and taste. The music composed by Massimiliano Rolff expresses high compositional and executive quality.
Music of excellent craftsmanship where the skills of each individual musician shine, along with a choral voice capable of going beyond simple execution. There is great cohesion, and Rolff stands out as a bassist who can lead the band with a decisive pulse. His work anticipates the music that give each passage of Naked a sense of continuous becoming. All about Jazz
The composer Rolff lays himself bare, giving life and shape to original compositions made even more lively by a close-knit quartet which shows an excellent communicative “flow”. Mentelocale
Excellent hard bop jazz, without tinkering, without unwelcome sound effects, without show-off or show-off. Massimiliano Rolff, the bassist who is the soul of the group, develops a mainstream jazz, based on compositions, apparentlycollective, which is reminiscent, all things considered, of a Sonny Rollins – Jazz Hot
Naked expresses the most sacred essence of jazz. Rolff’s groove is precise and careful, creating a precise and effortless rhythmic backdrop for his bandmates to build upon. This group is solid, familiar, never disappoints in skill and blazing brightness. Jazz Rhytmit
Four musicians of absolute excellence in a jazz that mixes a certain type of hard bop (of modern conception, obviously!) with more open compositional structures, fertile ground for a good game of interplay, an ideal field for solo runs of great beauty and great taste. The music by Massimiliano Rolff expresses high compositional and executive quality. Jazz Convention
Naked: a syntonic groove, cool sounds mixed with balance and maturity. Sound research, rhythmic, melodic, content, at a high technical and musical level in search of a new language for European jazz – SoundContest
