Piergiorgio and Davide have worked together for many years, and are well know on the Milan Jazz scene, both as teachers and brilliant performers, including recently at “The Italian Accademia Musicale” in Monza. In 2010 Piergiorgio had the opportunity to develop new collaborations and projects at the faculty of the New School in New York. This led to new projects with Dave Glasser (saxophone), Cameron Brown (theory-harmony), and the Dave Stryker Big band with Brandon Lee. The Wales backed Quartet here launch their latest recording project at the Muse in Brecon.
