ART of The Messengers, the debut album by drummer Alex Semprevivo, is now available worldwide and in digital stores, produced by GleAM Records.
The drummer worked in this project in close contact with the pianist and producer Angelo Mastronardi, engaged together with the leader in the drafting of the arrangements for which they took care of the harmonic and structural look in line with a shared aesthetic vision, in which respect and love for the music of the Messengers are combined with the innovative trends developed side by side in the second record of the pianist (New Things, Same Words GleAM Records 2017 / Believe Digital).
An energetic drive with an incisive drive in which respect for the hardbop tradition meets the interesting rhythmic solutions of the leader and the band’s unexpected incursions into high-profile modern jazz.
