Luigi Bonafede Quartet featuring Dawn Mitchell
Luigi Bonafede Quartet featuring Dawn Mitchell (Italy-USA) Luigi Bonafede - piano Gaspare Pasini - alto saxophone Marco Vaggi - double bass Ferdinando Faraò - drums Dawn Mitchell - voice
This quintet was born after the idea of Luigi Bonafede to reunite with three old friends, all Italian jazz veterans with a long and important concert and discographic career. They are Gaspare PASINI (alto sax), Marco VAGGI (double bass) and Ferdinando FARAO’ (drums), with whom he has been sharing concerts and recordings for about 35 years, though not always all together as a quartet.
Joining the quartet is Dawn MITCHELL, a Caribbean singer who currently lives in Florida, but in the ’70-’80 she lived in Milan. Besides other experiences in the world of Pop music, she performed with Luigi Bonafede on several occasions, the most remarkable one with the octet The Little “Big” Orchestra, holding many concerts and recording an amazing CD for Pentaflowers (Beat Record).
Thanks to the different features and personalities of the musicians, their original music and their belief in jazz as a kind of music suitable for everybody and not just for few (contrary to this cliché), the quintet aims at creating an emotional concert which can be appreciated by a bigger audience.
