Biography of Luciano Troja

Blaise Siwula alto & tenor saxes, bass clarinet, clarinet.
Giancarlo Mazzù guitar, drums.
Luciano Troja piano.

“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.


GIANCARLO MAZZU’ guitar & LUCIANO TROJA piano

Giancarlo and Luciano play together on the jazz scene since 2002. Their music is mainly based on the search for new forms and expressions, related to the tradition with a solid jazz background, mixed with folk music, classical forms and free improvisation.
They toured together in Italy, England, Lithuania, Greece and USA. Both are composers and players of Mahanada Quartet (w/Carlo Nicita and Carmelo Coglitore), a well-known creative music ensemble with whom they played in several jazz and contemporary music festivals. With Mahanada they released three critically-acclaimed CDs for SplascH Records label: [uno], Taranta’s Circles, and Mannahatta (‘Critic’s Choice Top Ten 2006’ Cadence Jazz Magazine, ‘Best Albums Of 2006’ All About Jazz Italy).
They composed the music for several theatre works, playing on stage, and they represented Italy (w/ Mahanada) at XI Athens Biennial of Art 2003. They performed with many musicians of the creative area, among the others Barre Phillips, Globe Unity Orchestra, Blaise Siwula, and Jimmy Weinstein.
Giancarlo and Luciano have released also two CDs in duo Seven Tales About Standards (2006) & Seven Tales About Standards Vol.2 (2009), for SplascH Records label: an original point of view about some of the most famous songs of the American Songbook. Both the CDs have received rave reviews from the critic (‘Top Ten CDs 2006’ El Intruso Jazz Magazine Argentina, “Best Albums of 2009’ All About Jazz Italy, and nominations for ‘CD of the Year’, ‘Group of the Year’ and ‘Instrumentists of the Year’ on Top Jazz Poll 2009 of Musica Jazz magazine). Giancarlo and Luciano have recorded the third chapter of standards, the CD will release next year.
