"If they were looking for a name and lacking imagination, Alexander Hawkins and Gabriele Mitelli might choose to call themselves "The Golden Boys". Indeed, they are among the young artists (they were both born in the eighties) who have recently been making waves in the world of creative jazz. First, the English pianist, able to transition from Evan Parker to Mulatu Astatke, and to connect the traditions of classical jazz with the tensions of the avant-garde. Second, the Italian trumpet player who came to light in the wonderful duo with Pasquale Mirra (also in NovaraJazz, last year) and with the project NGO Crash + Ken Vandermark. Their worlds are electric and archaic at the same time, always human in their search for a future that is just around the corner and that speaks of wonderful sound discoveries ... " Enrico Bettinello
Alexander Hawkins has garnered the esteem of distinguished colleagues like Evan Parker, John Surman, Rob Mazurek and Han Bennink for his intelligent, sensitive and technically flawless pianism. Hawkins has embraced the spirit of the great masters of African-American musical art such as Art Tatum, Thelonious Monk and Cecil Taylor. Gabriele Mitelli is a volcano of creativity, so much so that he can boast extremely illustrious collaborations with innovative projects. He was awarded second place in the new talents section of Top Jazz in 2016 and in 2017 the best new Italian talent by the critics of "Musica Jazz" magazine.
