The trio has had a successful tour in Europe since last year, and plays original interpretations of the most classical jazz compositions. The Italian trio embodies Fornarelli’s idea of music to observe more than only listen to.

They play music in original and colorful harmony made of electronic components and acoustic instruments and northern European ideas of jazz.
