Mauro Ottolini “Nada Más Fuerte” Sextet

One of the most extravagant figures on the jazz scene, Mauro Ottolini adds another piece to his varied artistic identity. Nada Más Fuerte” is a project born from popular music's fascination, “where the existential contact with the value of life and experience becomes intense and almost physical”. Latin atmospheres and more, since the repertoire runs north to south, bringing geographically distant countries and cultures closer together, like a song by Chavela Vargas, a Swedish song or a Lebanese prayer. Ottolini says, "the song, which is an artistic object, doesn’t need to be ennobled. It is, instead, essential to rediscover the beauty and poetry of these simple and direct forms which express from the heart the depths of the human soul before the mystery of existence”. Ottolini chose a quintet of popular instruments whose timbre is ideal for this journey: classical guitar, brass instruments and accordion, with the collaboration of an extraordinary voice, Vanessa Tagliabue Yorke, who can return intact the intensity of this repertoire made of original songs, rumba, fado, calypso and a multitude of colors that make us travel the world, jumping back and forth in time.
