Stefan di Franco album recorded!
Gottfried di Franco stands for a kaleidoscopical, meaningful and euphoric musical language. With their compositions saxophonist Stefan Gottfried and guitars Gabriele di Franco create besides through composed passages as much space as possible for creativity, spontaneous joy of playing and improvisation and hold up these immanent values in jazz far from shallow instrumental virtuosity.
The Austrian saxophonist and the Italian guitarist quickly found their congenial musical partners in the virtuosic Spanish pianist Raúl Santana, the extraordinary Brussels based bassist Diederik Billiet and the with creativity sparkling Portuguese drummer João Sousa. Five musicians whose roots couldn’t be more different, find themselves to pursue a musical idea in developing the sound of the band that draws attention by subtle and meaningful expression rather than by screaming or impetuous articulation.
