Piero delle Monache Quartet

The Italian jazz quartet plays at the Italian Institute of Culture. The quartet is on a tour of seven African cities (Libreville, Addis Ababa, Nairobi, Maputo, Johannesburg, Cape Town and Harare) to introduce its recording Thunupa, name of a volcano in Bolivia and a South American legend about a god who arrives on earth to bring order out of chaos.

The disc has ten original pieces. Delle Monache from the Abruzzo region of Italy is a saxophonist, composer and teacher. His work has developed from a clearly Coltrane influence to a more personal and almost cinematographic form.

Tito Mangialajo Rantzer (double bass) and Alessandro Marzi (drums) have played with Delle Monache before but Giovanni Ceccarelli (piano) is a new entry on this tour.
