• Show Bio for Gianni Mimmo
"Gianni Mimmo: Improviser and composer in the fields of jazz and experimentation on his own original projects, mainly focused on relationship among distant artistic declinations, Gianni Mimmo (1957) has built an international reputation for his unique treatment of musical timbre and his exploration of advanced techniques on the soprano saxophone.
His style has developed a unique blend of abstract lyricism and contemporary flavours and his works have been excellently reviewed by international magazines and webzines.
Based in the Milano area, Italy, Gianni started his research at the end of the '70s playing as saxophone player (mostly alto and baritone saxes) with several Italian experimental bands and investigating the relationship between music and spoken word in countless performances in theatres, communities, houses, streets, political sit-ins, auditoriums and small houses.
In 1994 Gianni Mimmo switches to soprano sax after some lessons/conversations with Steve Lacy who opens him the door to a different attitude and perspective in music.
Since then Gianni dedicated himself to soprano sax only.
The music-text formula drove him to work with poets, writers and singers. [...]"-Gianni Mimmo Website (http://www.giannimimmo.com/sites/default/files/bioENG.pdf)

sample the album:
"A lifting wind revealing how sparkling is the relationship between two musicians that share intentions, derivations, approaches whole perspective dialogic moves.
They both look at the sound as a morphing matter, with a plastic sculpting attitude.
The goal is (again) to make distances possible knowledge areas, a contemporary, lyric meditation.
The sound tree genealogy: eternal roots, changing leaves
One of Athena's epithets is "Grey-eyed".
Her gift to the Greeks was the useful olive tree.
The underside of the olive tree's leaf is grey, and when the wind lifts the leaves, it shows Athena's many "eyes".
Great contemporary istant compositions from a challenging duo signed by the elegant and intense touch on piano by Gianni Lenoci and the morphing sound statement of the soprano saxophone of Gianni Mimmo. A memorable recording proudly co-produced with Amirani Records"-Long Song Records
