Luca Aletta - piano
Stefano Cardillo - double bass

Description

TangOstinato unites two young gifted Italian musicians, pianist Luca Aletta and double bass player Stefano Cardillo. Their unique music leaves room for the unmistakable sensuality of tango, blending Astor Piazzolla’s nuevo tango and jazz tango and creating a passionate and rhythmic hue that communicates an original and intense touch to the listener. Pieces originally written by Aletta and Cardillo alternate with traditional tangos rearranged to present taste. Their sound combines characteristic jazz sonorities with distorted chords, rhythms recalling African music, improvisation, but also European music elements: a focus on dynamics, counterpoint and Italian style pieces, TangOstinato duo always moving on the borderline between jazz and cultured European music.
