Exploring the limits between jazz and flamenco, the Ian Scionti Trio establishes a natural and cohesive dialogue between the two musical traditions.
Campo Abierto (Open Field), their debut album, is born of a reflection about the aesthetic delimitations and conflux of these musical genres and their linguistic evolution, offering a show that crosses musical and cultural borders.
Comprised of original music by Scionti, the repertoire is based on traditional flamenco styles plus co-arrangements of clásic hard-bop compositions, that are dissected, rearranged and then reassembled. Through this process the songs transform, opening up for improvisation much like traditional jazz and finding musical synonyms with which to build new dialogue.
The Trio has played diverse international festivals including Jazz A’Védà (France), Eilersten & Granados Sommer Program (Noruega), Dos Hermanas Jazz Festival (Spain), Jazz Alemtejo (Portugal), Jazz Gunung (Indonesia) and Ubud Village Jazz Festival (Indonesia).
