KEKKO FORNARELLI TRIO is the new project of Kekko Fornarelli three years after his last album. It is the attempt to create a more and more universal vision of music, able to draw jazz out of the narrow circuit of its appreciators and
bringing it to the general audience.
Room of mirrors is the first album of this evolution involving the utilization of musical notes to tell stories, emotions and situations, to create a music to observe, more than just to listen to. An original and colourful harmony made of electronic components and acoustic instruments, modern northern European ideas and neoclassical lyricism, filtered by the unique pen of this southern Italian talent, this piano trio immerses the listener into a vortex of changing feelings, from the darkest to the clearest, from luxury to simplicity. Fornarelli is definitely a new voice in the Italian jazz
