Lo spirito creativo e la totale libertà nel suonare i capolavori del repertorio Broadway Standards e i brani originali è qualcosa che ha cambiato per sempre la storia del Jazz.
Il trombettista David Boato e il contrabbassista Lorenzo Conte, entrambi Veneziani, il sassofonista Canadese Robert Bonisolo il pianista Cagliaritano Luca Mannutza e il batterista svizzero Alfred Kramer intraprendono questo viaggio espressivo per rileggere in modo originale i brani suonati da Miles Davis uno dei più grand iinterpreti del Jazz contemporaneo.

NATE CHINEN of NEW YORK TIMES – “Ferenc Nemeth is a nimble Hungarian drummer with a feel for African rhythm.”
Ferenc’s new project is based on the research he did on getting back to his roots (Hungary), combined with his 20 years experience in New York, plus improvisation and electronic sounds to make the music more relevant. This is a mix of a modern adaptation of old soulful melodies with a great variety of rhythmic content, improvisation and some experimental sounds.
“The other very interesting part of this music is that I am using a vocal harmonizer. This little electronic tool enables me to use my voice as a synthesizer and create new textures. I like to think that today’s music is evolving very fast and with the help of the internet, we have access to listen to anything at any time. That makes today’s music global. There are a great variety of cultures and each culture has its own music. We can mix and match whatever we want. But by playing music there’s one important responsibility left. To play it authentically and honestly. That’s what I am always aiming for and this is my best project so far to represent that.” Ferenc Nemeth
