Carlo Aonzo Trio – Mandolitaly

Carlo Aonzo has published a new CD with Italian music – Mandolitaly. In this album the Carlo Aonzo Trio plays a set of Italian tunes in very entertaining way, with a light mood and jazzy influences. The mandolin has a beautiful tone, and the accompaniment by guitar and double bass prepares a colorful base for the mandolin.

You can hear selections by Raffaele Calace and Carlo Munier, songs like the Genoese song “Ma se ghe penso”, the Neapolitan song “Voce ‘e notte”, the song “Nebbia’a la Vall” from the Abruzzi, a Sicilian Tarantella joined with Taranta Steps by John Coltrane, and a classical Toccata in A.

Carlo Aonzo has a compiled a great and entertaining album for everybody who loves the mandolin, with lovely tremolo serenades and jolly tarantellas. Some of the recordings remind me of the great Dave Apollon.

For the recording Carlo has added some great guest musicians to add more colors to the unique sound.

After “A Mandolin Journey”, musical tour through the continents, the Carlo Aonzo Trio – Carlo Aonzo on the Italian mandolin, Lorenzo Piccone on the acoustic guitar and Luciano Puppo on the double bass – is back, this time travelling along the Italian tradition to rediscover its peculiar soundtrack. Once again the main character is the mandolin which, in the personal unique modern and eclectic style of Aonzo, makes such repertoire surprisingly catchy and contemporary.

Shetland Folk Festival about Trio Dhoore

In only five years and with three full albums, Trio Dhoore have launched themselves a top Flemish folk export.  They blend traditional music from Flanders with their own style to create an energetic sound that will make you sit on the edge of your seat. Their “rooted folk music” breathes life, freedom and energy into a repertoire of traditional Flemish tunes (and the occasional song) and their own self-penned material. They create an immersive soundscape where folky grooves, melancholy melodies and intuitive interplay combine to unique effect.
