Manifesto – Black Milk Impulses released on Metarecords

META 070

“The music is presented as the accidental rumblings of a musical virus. The tracks tumble out of the speakers like an intoxicated businessman, but a close listen reveals that each piece is anything but inebriated…………..The joy of Mainfesto is the sounds between the notes, sampled crowds, static and these interlude tracks of less than two minutes that contain the seeds of extended improvisations.”

Mark Corroto – All About Jazz

“At any moment, any of the three players seems entirely free to do as they wish, whether that be to inject a melody, a solo or a burst of rhythm; by some alchemy, that does not lead to a free-for-all or a cacophony but music that is focussed, coherent and fluid.”

John Eyles – All About Jazz

released 24 October 2014

Gerhard Gschlößl – Trombone
Gianpaolo Camplese – Drums
Leo Auri – Piano, Electronics
