ABOUT Andrés Ortiz Trio
piano - Andrés Ortiz V.
double bass - Antonio Cervellino
drums - Brian Quinn
The sound of the Andrés Ortiz Trio instinctively reminisces latin music, drawing from folkloric rhythms of various South American regions: cumbia, pasillo, bambuco, samba and bolero melt into an original and highly flammable synergy with jazz music, obtaining a sound both true to tradition and, by reinterpreting syncopated rhythms and metres, utterly contemporary.
Through the chance encounter with two musicians long active in Switzerland, Rino Rossi, double bass, and Brian Quinn, drums, the Trio is founded in 2009. Actually Antonio Cervellino (from Italy) is the new entry on double bass playing. The band prepares to reveal itself to the public through the recording of their first album - Inesperado - at the first months of 2011. The recording of the promotional album has already taken place in March at the renown Studio 2 of the Swiss national radio in Lugano, arousing much interest from the radio editors. During the months to come, the Andrés Ortiz Trio will be featured by various jazz clubs in Southern Switzerland and Italy. The official shocase of the project is scheduled at Sonvico in jazz 2010, during the festival's sixth edition.
