Emilio Giovanoli Quintet

Peaks, lakes and forests as radiant and vulnerable music

The project was initiated by Emilio Giovanoli, a double bass player and composer from Ticino who is already well-known in the Swiss music scene as a versatile sideman. His aim is to bring together musicians with a shared vision whom he met during their studies at the renowned Jazzcampus in Basel. The resonant, earthy sound of Emilio Giovanoli's double bass blends with the soundscapes created by the brilliant touch of Alexandre Cahen on piano (France), the reactive groove of drummer Max Liebenberg (South Africa), the immersive playing of guitarist Martin Theurillat (Chile/Switzerland) and the airy lines of saxophonist Lennard Fiehn (Germany). Their imagination is fed by the broad tradition of jazz filtered through the meditative landscapes of the Alps. These omnipresent natural obstacles with their peaks, lakes and forests provide a meditative source of inspiration, creating music that is radiant, vulnerable and communicative. The project's first self-produced EP is planned for the end of 2023.
