Import CD – RRJ 1036 – Stone – Porta Palace Collective + Rob Mazurek


After the collaborations with Giancarlo Schiaffini, Satoko Fuji and Natsuki Tamura, Turin-based Porta Palace Collective, led by Johnny Lapio, welcomes Rob Mazurek, one of the central figures on the actual Avant-Jazz scene. Italian saxophone player Pasquale Innarella is also featured as special guests on this Porta Palace Collective third album.

Mazurek seems to have completely assimilated the band's spirit. His personality perfectly fits into their rich sound mesh, and his cornet finds the right place among the collective's broad frameworks, including both large improvisation areas and beautifully composed structures. Recorded live at the end of a tour, the album sets the first step for a future partnership.
