Giovanni Ceccarelli Trio
Giovanni Ceccarelli – piano
Mauro Gargano – double bass
Patrick Goraguer – drums
The Giovanni Ceccarelli Trio is formed by three musicians of great experience on the international scene. The trio’s music is very lyrical, moreover the arrangements put in evidence the three artists’ expressive qualities. Ceccarelli, Gargano, and Goraguer deeply listen to each other, creating an interplay throughout their process of making music.
In 2011 Giovanni Ceccarelli releases the album “Météores”, a work mostly dedicated to his own music, which is published by French label Bonsaï Music and distributed by Harmonia Mundi. Italian guitarist and singer Fausto Mesolella and Belgian singer David Linx are featured as special guests in the CD.
From this album, Bonsaï Music produces a music video of Ceccarelli’s composition “Ti Odio”. The video is directed by Marthe Le More and it features Fausto Mesolella as reciting voice and lyrics author.
“Météores” meets the public’s and critics’ success and it is awarded with the “Sélection FIP” and “Sélection écouters” in France and the “Sélection HMCH” in Switzerland.
Ceccarelli’s jazz is mature and incisive; this record… is among the most intense and convincing works that we’ve happened to listen to in recent times.
