Simply 5 represent one of the most interesting products of the rich hotbed of Trentino jazz, which has grown
significantly in recent years thanks to the numerous Festivals which enrich the musical seasons around the Alps.
This quintet pays tribute to the sounds of the extraordinary New York music scene of the '50s and '60s, a time when the legendary record label "Blue Note Records" marked a period which was among one of the most prolific and refined in the history of jazz.
The simple yet captivating melodies, often characterized by seductive blues notes and accompanied by an engaging rhythm, are incredibly moving for the public, transporting the listener back in time, to an unforgettable musical period full of charm.
Although Simply 5's music has its roots firmly planted in tradition, the group also loves experimenting with more modern sounds, sometimes producing original compositions combined with influences from lounge and South American music, always leaning towards a melodic and spontaneous vibe.
The five musicians, all with a wealth of experience and a number of artistic awards, are also highly esteemed in the field of teaching, having taught in the Music Schools in Trentino Alto Adige.
