Hidden Gem #80: Strata-Gemma – Strata-Gemma

Fly By Night Music‘s first release of the year and Strata-Gemma’s debut album is a beautiful 8-track record that explores an array of sonic possibilities.

The Italian trio create jazz for the head, the heart and the body. Their sound is shaped by the ambient adventures Miles Davis and Ron Carter engaged in alongside the electronic pulse Mo’ Wax and Ninja Tune carved out of clubland. Add to this a touch of Nino Rota’s Fellini film scores, employ a pinch of Balkan and klezmer brass arrangements, and you have an instrumental trio who create music so fresh it stimulates the senses…

Consisting of  producer Niccolò Bruni (aka Billy Bogus), horns player Luca Cacciatore; double bassist Andrea Moretti the trio produce a music of beautiful symmetry.

From funky jams through to contemplative ambient moments and post-club jazz workouts; this records is a pure delight to listen to.
