The quartet met recently formed by Nico Gori, an excellent international known musician, already alongside masters such as Tom Harrell, Fred Hersch, Stefano Bollani and many others.
The quartet is made also by the excellent pianist Piero Frassi, already known in the Italian jazz scene, from the solid and experienced bassist Nino “Swing” Pellegrini and the sparkling Vladimiro Carboni, drummer active in England and the United States and recently settled on the Tuscany coast.
The Tuscany coast, in fact, is the land of origin of 3/4 of the group. It is also the meeting place of the four players in perfecting the sound and refine interplay.
The name “Sea side” takes its cue from the venue for rehearsals, near the sea, on the coast of Livorno, a very inspiring place.
The quartet’s repertoire ranges from traditional jazz to original songs, with clear references to the bebop and hard bop.
The main feature of Nico Gori Sea Side 4tet, is, in addition to the quality of the music, the great feeling among the musicians who have worked together for years but in turn part of different projects.
