Omit Five is a contemporary jazz quintet born at the end of 2010 inside the conservatory of music ‘Venezze’ in Rovigo, Italy, as spontaneous meeting between five musicians taking their Jazz Master in the school. They have different musical, cultural and geographical backgrounds, since they come from both the north and the south of Italy.
Their repertoire is almost entirely based on wide-ranging original tunes, compositions where the group tries to combine composition and improvisation, linking the post-bop tradition with a contemporary sound that trys to serve as a mirror of our age.
The quintet, despite of its young age, already participated to different national contests, winning the first prize in “Barga Jazz Contest 2011” and in “Premio Nazionale delle Arti – Sezione Jazz 2011” led by Minister of Education, Universities and Research, while they gained the second prize in “Chicco Bettinardi Jazz Contest 2012”.
The band, soon recognized as one of the most interesting young bands in the italian jazz scene, played in italian festivals and clubs like Umbria Jazz 2012, JAM fest 2013, Torrione Jazz Club (Ferrara) , Milestone – Piacenza Jazz Club, Bergamo Jazz Club, Barga Jazz Club, Le Scimmie (Milan), Rovigo Jazz Club, Venezze Jazz Festival 2011, Fara Music Jazz Live 2011 and around europe in the IIC of Paris, Amsterdam and Bruxelles, ‘Au Chat Noir’ of Paris.
Going back to the music, the group takes main inspiration from some of the most important jazz musicians of the last fifty years as Wayne Shorter, Dave Douglas, Dave Holland.
The Omit Five in 2012 focus on their artistical proposal producing a bunch of original compositions merged in their first album entitled “Omit Five” released in october, 2012, by historical venetian jazz label Caligola Records.
All the musicians involved, Mattia Dalla Pozza on alto sax, Filippo Vignato on trombone, Joseph Circelli on electric guitar, Rosa Brunello on double bass and Simone Sferruzza on drums compose for the group. Omit Five’s music therefore presents itself as a colorful kaleidoscope of timbres, melodies, armonies and improvisations, selected every time on the basis of each composer’s taste and sensitivity, but always referable to one original sound, underlining the deep work they did togheter as a band.
Research of balance between composition and improvisation, use of unconventional timbres, use of non-jazz languages merged with the post-bop tradition and employment of polyrhythms are the peculiarities of their music.

Press Excerpt

Their music proposal contains modal thoughs (Nodo Gordiano), rock frames (ZTL), polirythms and complex tematic articulation (Roulotte in fila indiana) resulting as a language that flows around a revisited post-bop estethic. Taste for the unpredictable and knowledge of jazz tradition convoy both in original compositions and in their own versions of Tom Waits'' Shiny Things and of Ellington's afro-centric minor blues 'Oclupaca'. 'Monday Nights' emanates a pink-floydian charme full of timbric contrasts, with a convincing performance of Circelli. The gluey and dreamy melody of 'Bambini Sperduti', immerged in a liquid psichedelia, closes such a intriguing work. (ADV - JazzIt ).
