Alessandro Lanzoni: He was only 21 years old when he won, in 2013, the “Top Jazz” poll in Italy. And he already had a prestigious story behind as musician. Nevertheless to say that he was a “child prodigy” of piano at only 13. Today is a luminary in Italian jazz scene. He is one of the most extraordinary talent of jazz. His piano-solo performances are simply astonishing.

Domenico Sanna: He is 30 years old and already considered one of the most audacious and advanced pianists and keyboard players coming from Europe. Domenico conceptualized his “Brooklyn Beat!” trio out of necessity, driven by a focus on the beat – the pulse of the musical world.
