One of the most eclectic artists of the international avant-garde jazz scene returns to Italy, her birthplace, after 30 years spent between New York and Brazil,
also touring in many countries of the world: MARINA FIORENTINI, born in Rome, singer, pianist, author for the cinema and the theatre, talent scout
she launched Enrico Rava with the American Quartet, as well as Irio De Paula and Nana Vasconcelos not to mention many other artists of the Italian jazz and pop scene,
is also a remarkable director and bandleader and no doubt she is more famous abroad than in Italy.
MARINA FIORENTINI presents her latest live project titled "Unexpected String", also recorded in an unusual album + dvd, respectively recorded in Brazil and in New York.
"Unexpected String" is an amazing project of avant-garde jazz, a total musical message that has its roots in the New York scene of which Marina has been protagonist and integral part for so many years.
Avant-jazz (the acronym of avant-garde jazz) is a musical style mainly based on jazz improvisation combined with elements of composition of contemporary avant-garde music.
Among the "historical" names of the jazz avant-garde scene (John Coltrane in the "free" period, Evan Parker, Sun Ra, to mention a few), S
un Ra is the musician who mostly inspired Marina Fiorentini.
On the occasion of her return to Italy, Marina Fiorentini has added to her repertoire some original compositions.
