A journey across Italian flavours, classical tones, Nordic landscapes, free improvisations, with a distant echo of Argentinean tango

An evening of original music written by two wonderful musicians - Swedish meets Italian in a common tone of respect and love. Deep northern Swedish forests and lakes and southern Italian mountains and beaches - they met at the Rhythmic Music Conservatory in Copenhagen many years ago and have played together in countless constellations since then, sharing a common love for freedom in life and musical expression - grounded in great skill and mastery.
Thommy Andersson (SWE) - Double bass
Paolo Russo (ITA) - Piano and bandoneon

Created in June 2022, Paolo's Jazz Club is an intimate concert venue - created around and by the pianist, bandoneonist and composer, Paolo Russo together with hiswife, the singer, artist and voice awareness teacher, Katrine Krog Russo on the West part of island Møn in the Southern part of Denmark.
Just like Paolo's work as a musician, arranger and composer, the concerts in the jazz club range widely - from jazz to Danish folk, from Cuban/Latin to classical music, and will be presented as a dive into Paolo's artistic universe with guests from all musical genres and from all over the world.
Paolo’s Jazz Club is a privately owned and self-financed live venue, a vision of a place where music takes first priority, creating intimate worldclass musical experiences.
We have created Paolo's Jazz Club as an image of how we believe music should be listened to and lived. With respect and attention to both the audience and the artists on the stage.
An intimate musical experience - a contract between artist and audience of meeting in the love of music.

On this solo piano album, Paolo Russo revisits his musical roots through the beautiful works of Scarlatti, Zipoli, Galuppi, Pampani, Legati and Croce. All wonderful composers from the Baroque era writing for clavicembalo - on the album interpreted and played on piano with the unique artistic expression of Russo, which gives new life to the timeless compositions.
The album is dedicated to the memory of Rachele Marchegiani ("La Signora"), Paolo's old piano teacher
This is the third release in the series of solo bandoneon albums from Paolo Russo. The first album contained jazz standards (2016); the second album (2017) featured newly composed music (including the bandoneon sheet music)
The third bandoneon solo album presents original material, melodic and “cantabile”, composed and improvised by Paolo Russo.
The inspiration from the forest can be perceived throughout the whole album, where Paolo's atmospheric melodies and free improvisations remind the listener of the power and eternal force of nature.
Paolo Russo takes the listener on a journey through some of the most famous themes from Fellini's masterpieces, "Amarcord", "La Dolce Vita" and "8 e 1/2", as well as a selection of melodies from the unforgettable soundtrack of "The Godfather".
This outstanding music material is re-interpreted, re-arranged and presented by Paolo Russo and his quintet in two suites, the "Fellini Suite" and the "Godfather Suite", recorded live during the 2013 Copenhagen Jazz Festival at Jazzhus Montmartre.
