Inner Urges

Fabrizia Barresi – vocals

Giovanni Ceccarelli – piano


Inner Urges, born and shaped in Paris, France, propose their original compositions and own arrangements of tunes coming from various musical traditions (jazz, rock, pop, European, North and South American songwriters, traditional music from Japan and India). From their common ground, the jazz idiom, Inner Urges expande their expression towards other musical fields and feelings. Voice and piano undertake a deep, emotional conversation, using improvisation and written material, in a subtle net of melodies and grooves. They name it Inner Urges (after Joe Henderson’s composition) as they are sounding and choosing their repertoire with passion and dedication: these are actually inner urges for both, evidently.

Fabrizia Barresi and Giovanni Ceccarelli publish together the CD “Feedin’ Inner Urges” (Quantum Jazz Music, 2009).

The music of Inner Urges is chosen for the exhibition “The Greenwood In The Room” by visual artist Ribes Sappa.

Inner Urges has given numerous concerts in Italy and France.
