20:00 – 21:00
IL SOGNO (PL/IT/DK)
Emanuele Maniscalco – piano
Tomo Jacobson – double bass
Oliver Laumann – drums
IL SOGNO is about storytelling, freedom and intuition. The band uses melodic, minimal compositions as a motor for elevated, focused improvisations. With its lyrical uniqueness IL SOGNO’s music balances on the boarders of genres. It lays somewhere between jazz, cinematic, free improv, minimal, chamber, and ECM-like, but its highly individual sound stands firmly on its own, and never really makes you doubt that it is anything else than it is.
The band features three internationally recognized improvisers: Italian pianist Emanuele Maniscalco, Danish drummer Oliver Laumann, and Polish bassist Tomo Jacobson. The musicians met in 2013 in Copenhagen where they are based and where they are all deeply involved with the Danish improvised scene. From the first time they played together it was evident that they share a very strong connection. From the first concerts they played together it was obvious they have the power to enchant the audiences with their sound and to keep them electrified throughout their unpredictable performances.
IL SOGNO will release their debut album on ILK at the end of 2016. Stay tuned!
