Lorenzo Naccarato trio
nova rupta

Lorenzo Naccarato — piano & composition
Benjamin Naud — drums
Adrien Rodriguez — bass


« Lorenzo Naccarato is back, with his trio. His second opus, Nova Rupta, proves worthy of the promises aroused by the first one in 2016. Better still, the group has gained in maturity. In cohesion. Without deserting an inch of what already made their seductive power. Namely that they disorientate the listener straightaway.They take him/her on a dreamlike journey. An enchanted – and enchanting – world.

A music in motion. Cinetic, or cinematic. Lorenzo's field is the whole universe. His effects, the exhilaration of boundless horizons. The conscious and mastered expression of this harmony of spheres, ever-recurrent through the centuries since Pythagoras, brilliantly exploited by Dante. Spheres… How could we not mention Thelonious “Sphere” Monk? A fortuitous encounter? Not in the least. Lorenzo, composer and pianist, knows his Monk like the back of his ten fingers. Whether he is imbued with the characteristics of his art – the role of silence, that of the daring harmonies, among others – that cannot be denied.

However, regarding Naccarato as a follower would be singularly simplistic. Because his novelty stands out on each note. The brilliant improvisation, amazingly fluid, the repeated melodic motifs, gradually enriched, the meditative sections, the rhythmical and harmonic ruptures combine in his art to create a feeling of freedom and fulfilment. All this is part of himself. Of himself and of his accomplices, Adrien Rodriguez and Benjamin Naud, who follow him as one in his powerful wanderings. No doubt, the upsurge of such a trio in the world of jazz and contemporary musics is a milestone. A meteorite, of course ! »
