Exploring the limits between jazz and flamenco, the Ian Scionti Trio establishes a natural and cohesive dialogue between the two musical traditions. Campo Abierto (Open Field), title of their debut album, is born of a reflection about the aesthetic delimitations and conflux of these musical genres and their linguistic evolution, offering a show that crosses musical and cultural borders.
Comprised of original music by Ian Scionti, the repertoire is based on traditional flamenco styles plus co-arrangements of classic hard-bop compositions, that are dissected, rearranged and then reassembled. Through this process the songs transform, opening up for improvisation much like traditional jazz and finding musical synonyms with which to build new dialogue.
