Kekko Fornarelli Trio in Mumbai



Kekko Fornarelli Trio in Mumbai

Kekko Fornarelli Trio, an original interpretation of the most classical jazz formations, features three Italian jazz virtuosos (Kekko Fornarelli, piano & synth, Giorgio Vendola, double bass, Dario Congedo, drums) and embodies Fornarelli idea of a music to observe, more than just to listen to. Recently placed in the TOP 10 most voted Italian jazz formations in the Jazzit Awards competition, the Trio is currently touring worldwide, achieving resounding success everywhere. “After 10 minutes, it was evident that this classy threesome had very different stories to tell […]It was resoundingly obvious why this close-knit, thoughtful and viscerally exciting new trio are winning acclaim across Europe”, John Fordham, The Guardian.

Their last work, Outrush (Abeat), was released in March 2014. Here, thanks to the extraordinary alchemy with Giorgio Vendola on double bass and Dario Congedo on drums, Kekko Fornarelli draws his personal escape – outrush – into his own world. A complexity able to hit the audience straight in the heart and the stomach, before touching the mind, carrying jazz out of its borders.

“An incredibly personal and introspective release that with the brilliance of Kekko's harmonic movement takes one to places that can touch your heart and set your hair on fire, often at the same time. Italy is a variable gold mine for improvisational music. Kekko Fornarelli is a master but more so, he is an artist” – Brent Black (
