B.A.M. “Trigono” – Bardoscia, Alborada, Marcotulli
B.A.M., that is, Marco Bardoscia, the bass player of the project Lumina and of Tempo di Chet by Paolo Fresu; Alborada Quartet, eclectic chamber music formation open to contamination; Rita Marcotulli, the lady of the jazz piano, one of the most charismatic figures of European jazz.
The meeting between the String Quartet, Rita Marcotulli and Marco Bardoscia – as Sonia Peana, violinist of Alborada recounts – arose from a communion of intent and musical tastes that range from classical and contemporary repertoire to jazz, with the strong imprint of each member of the group which, in this way, renders the repertoire original and unique in its kind.
B.A.M. has documented this complex identity in a disc entitled Trigono, published by Tŭk Music, Fresu’s record label. The title is not accidental. In astrology the trigono (trigon) indicates a positive integration between the characteristics symbolised by the planets that form it, even when they are very different, one from the other, or even contrasting. And it is in this harmony that the essence of the music of B.A.M. goes beyond the definitions and separations in sectors: a transversal project that over time has achieved balance and coherence in its moving between jazz improvisation and chamber music, tradition and modernity, Mediterranean roots and experimentation.
