This trio hail from Modena, the Northern Italian motor city. As with the Ferrari and Maserati cars that are designed and manufactured in Modena, Strata-Gemma produce a music of beautiful symmetry. Strata-Gemma create jazz for the head, the heart and the body. Their sound is shaped by the ambient adventures Miles Davis and Ron Carter engaged in alongside the electronic pulse Mo' Wax and Ninja Tune carved out of clubland. Add to this a touch of Nino Rota's Fellini film scores, employ a pinch of Balkan and klezmer brass arrangements, and you have an instrumental trio who create music so fresh it stimulates the senses. Strata-Gemma consist of producer Niccolò Bruni (aka Billy Bogus), horns player Luca Cacciatore; double bassist Andrea Morea. Bruni is a DJ, producer and founder of Pizzico Records. https://soundcloud.com/flybynightmusic/sets/fbnm017-strata-gemma-strata 0000 - 0400 Lorenzo (Fly by Night) & friends Fly By Night Music boss plays records for the after-party Free entry for ticket holders, otherwise £5 otd.
