Description

Ribble Valley Jazz welcomes our second international festival band! Pericopes + 1 is a jazz project initiated by pianist Alessandro Sgobbio & saxophonist Emiliano Vernizzi. Brooklyn-based drummer Nick Wight became the + 1 in 2012.

The result is "These Human Beings", a 2015 album (Alfa Music Label). The trio has had widespread media attention and two successful album-release tours in America & Europe. And Pericopes has just released new album 'Legacy' ... In time for the festival.

Since its release, "These Human Beings" rapidly gained attention of the international jazz press and iconic musicians. Evident in the album’s liner notes, saxophonist Dave Liebman says, “These guys have a history to be sure.” ECM artist Enrico Rava also contributes, “There is the search but also heart...there is rage and love.” By autumn, the album earned over two-dozen reviews, including USA’s Downbeat, and Italy’s Musica Jazz. Additional achievements include a featured interview and performance for RAI Radio 3 in Milan, an appearance on Austrian National Television, and various highlights from both tours.

New album #Legacy internationally released in February 2018 on @auandrecords
