The World Jazzet brings together world renowned pianist Laszlo Gardony from Germany, Berklee Saxophone professor Marco Pignataro from Italy, Drums and Percussion master Jorge Perez-Albela from Peru, Legendary Bassist John Lockwood from South Africa, to join forces with multi World Champion Accordionist from Rhode Island, Cory Pesaturo, for a program with a strong Mediterranean jazz influence. Marco Pignataro came up with the idea of the group, and explores original music while arranging existing compositions from the Mediterranean regions and the Americas in a world jazz context, but without losing its connection to its folkloric roots. The combination of soulful and haunting melodies with Mediterranean sounds and modes, creates a very original springboard for jazz improvisation and jazz harmonic explorations.
