Patrizio Fariselli returns with a new live line-up of the highest level, with a repertoire of Area classics and new surprises, with the same line-up that accompanied him on May 25th at the Kawasaki City Club, in front of 1300 people. Active since 1972, the Area - International POPular Group has been one of the most loved bands ever; able to bring together jazz lovers, progressive rock fans and fans of ethnic sounds, pop music and cultured avant-garde.
The research spirit of Patrizio Fariselli in Area Open Project is the direct continuation of that of the historical group and of great musicians such as Demetrio Stratos, Giulio Capiozzo, Ares Tavolazzi and Paolo Tofani. Pianist and composer, Patrizio Fariselli is the only member of Area to have participated in all the band's lineups.
The line-up is composed of Claudia Tellini on vocals, who interprets the songs of Demetrio Stratos in the original key, and a historical and consolidated rhythm section with two of the most respected jazz musicians in Italy, Marco Micheli on bass and Walter Paoli on drums. “Luglio, Agosto, Settembre (Nero)”, “Gioia e Rivoluzione”, “L’Elefante Bianco” and many other masterpieces of the most innovative band of the Italian scene of the seventies, return to shine with a new light in an international dimension.
With Area Open Project, Patrizio Fariselli leads the public on a journey through space and time, between jazz and world sounds reinterpreted with the band's typical experimental style, through fascinating and engaging atmospheres, where exoticism meets the unheard of.
Band: Patrizio Fariselli (piano, tastiere) - Claudia Tellini (voce) - Marco Micheli (basso) - Walter Paoli (batteria)
