The Protagonists

Jackie Terrison Trio

Jackie Terrison
Born in Berlin to a French father and an American mother (a passion for jazz), Jackie Terrasson is undoubtedly one of the most celebrated talents to emerge on the world jazz scene between the 80s and 90s. He studied classical piano in Paris until he discovered his mother’s large collection of jazz recordings. At nineteen he left for the United States, set up a study residency at Berklee in Boston and then returned to Paris, where he worked with Dee Dee Bridgewater, Barney Wilen, and Ray Brown, among others. Returning to the United States in 1993 was marked by first prize in the prestigious “Thelonious Monk” competition in Washington, DC.

It is a precursor to a brilliant career that in a few years will lead him to play on stages all over the world and sign for the prestigious Blue Note.
In a technically idealistic style, Terrasson combines the European modernist tradition (listening to him might sometimes come to mind Debussy and Ravel) and high school of jazz piano improvisation, in keeping with a tradition that carries over from Art Tatum, through Bud Powell, Ahmed Jamal and Thelonius Monk, coming to Bill Evans. What is surprising about his playing is the sudden appearance of imaginative quotes and compositions, a natural sense of rhythm and an extraordinary dynamism. Although Terrasson is now best known as a soloist, he was for a long time a companion to singers such as Betty Carter or instrumentalists such as Tom Harrell and Wallace Rooney.
The trio’s current line-up, his favorite setting alongside solo piano, includes guitarist Geraud Portal and drummer Lukmil Perez.

The band R:ED, born out of the collaboration of Ticino pianist Gabriel Pezzoli and guitarist, producer and sound manipulator Elijah Aneli – often joined by other musicians – will be delighted to meet legendary Norwegian trumpeter, composer and producer Nils Peter Mulfer, a pioneer of electro jazz, at an evening An unprecedented special produced by Rete Due for the festival.
A sound that comes from the great cold, Nils Peter Mulfair’s trumpet is majestic but also subtle and poetic, to be heard on every track. Nils Peter, the son of a well-known Norwegian jazz musician, was fortunate enough, at a young age, to meet such figures as Elvin Jones, George Russell and Gary Peacock, and with the experience gained, to enter and work for all 80 years in the Masqualero group led by guitarist Arild Andersen. Here he develops a particular sensitivity to ‘other’ sounds compared to mainstream sounds, inspired by the work of Brian Eno, Jon Hassell, and Bill Laswell. Filtering jazz, ocean, house, and electronic, breaking beats and reconfiguring them into unique acoustic landscapes, Mulfire was able to establish himself in the late 1990s as one of the hottest names in the new European scene, thanks to such prized albums as Khmer and Hard Ether (ECM). His music combines rhythmic grooves with the bases of electronic instruments and synthesizers, in a refined work of melodic and harmonious composition in which his instrument stands out. Miles Davis’ influence is evident in the dark and introverted sound of his horn, but it often becomes subtle and crystalline.
R: ED musicians suggest themselves in a continuous continuous action, which flies over the areas of ocean and music
Electronics to explore instantaneously composed audio scenes, featuring elaborate rhythmic loops rich in individual interventions with post-rock coloration and mysterious psychedelic sounds. Drums, synthesizers, guitars, and antique electric pianos weave the plot of music that is sometimes rhythmic, angular and energetic, sometimes visionary and meditative.

Viento y Tiempo

Gonzalo Rubalcaba and Aimee Nuviola, world-famous musicians and Grammy Award-winning musicians, are meeting for a new project: Viento y Tiempo.
A story, their story, which seems to be marked by fate. A story that arises between the streets of Havana, Cuba, and the rooms of the conservatory where the two future artists attended as children to study piano.
It’s been many years since Gonzalo Rubalcaba and Aimee Nuviola have played on the stairs of the conservatory. Meanwhile, Aymée’s warm voice overtook the island of Cuba, which propelled her to win a Grammy Award and become an international artist. The same thing happened with Gonzalo Rubalcaba, who today is one of the most famous pianists in the world and won two Grammy Awards.
Now they have found themselves: From the piano lessons they shared as children with a naive musical passion, today Gonzalo Rubalcaba and Aimee Nuviola – established musicians – breathe life into the Viento y Tiempo project.

Gonzalo Rubalcaba is considered one of the stars of international jazz. It received 15 Grammy Award nominations and won twice – with productions by Jay Newland and Charlie Haden – for Best Latin Jazz Album As With Nocturne (2002). He’s collaborated with the world’s greatest jazz players, from Dizzy Gillespie to Herbie Hancock, and from Richard Galliano to Ron Carter, to name a few.
His projects are in piano solo and in collaborations with jazz and classical music. His art collection never stopped evolving, reinterpreting traditional Afro-Cuban and Mexican sounds, ballads, sweaters, and classic island works. A pessimist wrote that Rubalcaba has the ability to simplify what is very complex.
Since 2010, Rubalcaba has been producing and recording for his own production and production company, 5Passion LLC.
Among the projects developed in recent years, projects with Anna Maria Jopek, Gonzalo Rubacaba Trio with Ernesto Simpson, Armando Gola and Gonzalo Rubalcaba Symphonic are of particular interest.

AYMÉE NUVIOLA Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter, author and actress: Aymée Nuviola is “La Sonera del Mundo”. Like the music of his native Cuba, he is the perfect embodiment of the magical blend of different musical genres. Born in Havana to a musical family, her first memories are on the piano as she discovers great melodies during her lessons. Subsequently, once awarded the title of classical pianist and composer at the Manuel Samuel Conservatory of Music, she expertly returned to the fascination with which all musical genres were aroused, from classical to bossa nova, and from jazz to the Cuban folk repertoire. At a young age she won the most important singing competition in Cuba, a feat that would lead her to record with the most important bands on the island such as Irakere and NG La Banda. In his most recent productions, Como Anillo Al Dedo (with whom he won a Latin Grammy in 2018) and A Journey Through Cuban Music achieves the perfect blend of diverse artistic and musical influences. Aymée has received several Grammy nominations and has also collaborated on several winning productions. On two occasions, it reached #1 on the Billboard Tropical chart. Aymée Nuviola’s music is borderless island, open to the world, friendly, optimistic, intelligent, and eager to share her personal and most intimate truths.
