Biography of Hot Tune

HOT TUNE

HOT TUNE’s warm and captivating music stands between Monk and Rabih Abou-
Khalil, passing through the Canterbury school, travelling from East to West, going into passionate and energetic improvisations and stepping outside boundaries.
HOT TUNE proposes an original electric music repertoire of distortions and dream-like visions.

The group was formed three years ago and initially performed as an acoustic band with a repertoire that went from jazz standards to pieces from the Balkan tradition, Arabic music and original compositions. Subsequently it started cooperating with various musicians, first of all with Alessandro Garau,
a drummer from Cagliari with whom Hot Tune played at La Palma Club in Rome in December
2005 during the Jazzità Festival (New Italian Jazz Festival).
The group has maintained its eclecticism and opened up to the influences and different perceptions of the many musicians who have played with it, leaving a transversal imprint to the sound of the group: Eugenio Colombo, Marilena
Paradisi, Amrit Hussain, Leonardo Milani, Rocco Zizzi, Sergio Ferrari,
Emanuele Tomasi, Errico De Fabritiis, Renato Ciunfrini.
Following the important experience at the 2006 edition of the
Festival Pietre che Cantano in Cisternino
(BR) and a series of concerts in Rome and Italy with a variable formation, the group has now become stabilized with Claudio
Sbrolli at the drums and has recorded its first official album,
"Magique", for George Haslam’s label SLAM Productions.

Nine original pieces and a re-interpretation of Odwalla of the Art Ensemble of
Chicago, "Magique" includes special guests such as
Eugenio Colombo ( saxophone and flute), Marilena Paradisi (voice) and
Errico De Fabritiis (saxophone). A complex but direct and powerful music between rock and jazz, free and ethnic impressions.
Recorded at Clive Simpson’s Extrabeat Recording Studio, "Magique" is not only the result of three years of intense work carried out by the group but also a starting point for new and vibrating evolutions.
The achievement of a personal sound combined with eclecticism and balance between faithfulness to the score and improvisation have undoubtedly helped Hot Tune in the creation of a new genre which is immediate and enthralling and has a profound and strong personality.
Distorted guitars, dissonant clarinets, sinuous bass guitars mingling with an eclectic and nervy drumming.

...East and West, jazz and dada-rock, odd tempos and hypnotic lines. HOT TUNE...a transversal jazz.
