Il progetto

Il progetto, avviato nel 2003 da Matteo Finali (chitarra elettrica), propone musica di qualità nell’ambito del progressive-jazz. La formazione esegue composizioni originali, con melodie di raffinato stampo jazzistico e spazi d’improvvisazione, le cui ritmiche affondano nelle radici della musica etnica, del rock, del funk e del blues.
La formazione che registra il concerto e il CD/DVD Live comprende, oltre al leader e fondatore Matteo Finali, Fabio Buonarota (tromba), Walter Calafiore (sassofoni), Alessandro Ponti (hammond e tastiere), Francesca Morandi (basso), Dario Milan (batteria) e Silvano de Tomaso (percussioni).

Album Review

From the polyglot border region of Ticino in Switzerland – well-known for its beautiful Lake Maggiore and the International Film Festival in Locarno – comes Final Step, the seven-member band of guitarist Matteo Finali. “Live @ Il Magazzino” is the band’s third album since its formation in 2003. The diverse musical backgrounds of all the band members shine through on the album: a fusion of jazz, rock, funk, blues and ethnic music.
The album was recorded in the studio of Mauro Fiero, who also produced the album with Matteo Finali and Dario Milan, “It was truly an extraordinary experience,” says Matteo Finali. “Mauro’s studio is very large, so we came up with the idea to record our album in front of an audience to capture the unique atmosphere of a live concert. The chemistry between the band and the audience was fantastic!” An intensity that can be felt throughout the entire album. The rousing electric guitar solos by band frontman Matteo Finali are perfectly placed highlights in an excellent ensemble full of natural showmanship, for which he leaves plenty of room for creativity. “Many of the songs I wrote years ago,” explains Matteo Finali, when asked about how he selected songs for the album, “the new band members elevate them to an entirely new level.” The result is an intense piece of jazz, with influences just as diverse, original and surprising as Ticino.
