“d’istante3” is a creative music project bringing together the two Italian improvisers Giancarlo Mazzù and Luciano Troja, and the New York based saxophonist Blaise Siwula.
Giancarlo and Luciano have worked together on the European jazz scene since 2002. Their music is mainly based on the search for new forms and expressions, related to tradition with a solid jazz background, mixed with folk music, classical forms and free improvisation.
Blaise Siwula has established a prominent role in the NYC music scene since his arrival there in 1989

Collaboration between the three musicians began in 2009, with their first performance together in NYC at ABC No-Rio, where Siwula is the curator of C.O.M.A. Series. In 2011 “d’istante3” performed in several venues around NYC (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Harlem); in April that year, in the Wombat Studio in Brooklyn, the trio decided to record their special synergy in the spontaneous session presented on this, their first CD.

He has studied various art forms through the years from music as a teenager (began studying saxophone) then poetry as a young man followed with visual arts (MFA Wayne State University) while maintaining a connection with and integrating music (specifically-improvisation). The result after 40 years of improvising is an outside–inside style of playing that infuses sound art with spontaneous melody.
A resident of NYC (since 1989) saxophonist Blaise Siwula has worked with a wide variety of creative musicians in the Jazz-Free Jazz- Free and New Music scene including - Cecil Taylor, Tan Dun, Katsuyuki Itakura, Toshi Makihara, William Parker, Luther Thomas, Donald Miller, Dom Minasi, Peter Kowald, Perry Robinson, Bern Nix, Sten Hostfalt, Vincent Chancey, Paul Hession, Bob Meyer, Borah Bergman, Sonny Simmons, Luciano Troja, Giancarlo Mazzù, Joseph Scianni, Ken Filiano, Dominic Duval & Carsten Radtke.
Blaise has visited Morocco on May 2012 to record and perform with Tarik Touil.
He has performed throughout the USA, Canada, Mexico , Europe (England, Germany, Portugal, Poland, The Netherlands, Slovenia, Croatia, Switzerland, Denmark), Asia (Korea, Japan, Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore and the Philippines).
Discography includes releases on CIMP Records, Cadence Jazz Records, Konnex Records, Cappuccinonet.com Records, Re:Konstruct and NoFrillsMusic.com
Blaise also curates the C.O.M.A. improvised music series at ABC No-Rio in NYC (1998-2012)
