Gloria Turrini and Mecco Guidi are now well-known and esteemed names among the professionals of the Italian music scene who, against all tendencies, starting from the roots of the Blues let contaminate their path with other sounds, sometimes even more modern, of black matrix between trad jazz, gospel, swing and blues. The certainty is that the powerful dark notes of Gloria Turrini’s contralto, enriched by her strong and brilliant personality, revive the music of the past through an energetic and exciting show where transpire dynamics that go from the most romantic and sweet side of ballads up to the most uptempo swing. It is no coincidence that in the course of her career many famous artists have turned to her and her incredible voice. Andrea Mingardi, Max Gazzè, Giuliano Palma, Andy J. Forest and Jackie Allen, just to name a few.

A similar professional path is the one undertaken by Mecco Guidi, a highly esteemed pianist and organist, with a career studded with collaborations alongside Raphael Gualazzi, Mario Biondi, Cesare Cremonini, Marta High, Franco Califano and many others, where he was also able to contaminate pop music with his great love for jazz and that – thanks to his very personal style – is conquering his vast share of audiences on both sides of the ocean.
Once again trad jazz blends with other genres to reach not only a wider audience, but also to touch emotional strings that are difficult to reach, demonstrating, if ever there was the need, its interdisciplinary and interracial value. And once again a woman carries on an original and winning project, confirming – again in this case – that only together both halves of the apple can become a tasty and succulent musical fruit.
