Enrico Zanisi
Piano player, born in Rome in 1990, Zanisi approached jazz when he was only 15 years old. Graduated with honours from the Conservatory of Music in L’Aquila, since his first exhibitions, he has proved himself to be a really talented musician with a great future before him. After a series of gigs and concerts in haunts all around Rome, a journalist, deeply impressed by his talent, has introduced him to a music executive. Shortly afterwards, he has had his second album, a trio project entitled “Life Variations”, released by the Cam Jazz. From that moment, Zanisi, continuously involved in several performances and music projects, has established himself as a top-level jazz player, gaining many awards, among which the “Best Top Jazz Talent” in 2012.

Danilo Gallo
He plays double bass, electric and acoustic bass guitar, bass balalaika, and bass lute. Eclectic and versatile musician, he has taken part in diverse music projects ranging from jazz to ethnic music, from improvised to avant-garde music. Co-founder of the musicians collective “El Gallo Rojo Records”, he has coordinated several projects (included the “Guano Padano” trio project), which have brought him international awards. He has been awarded best bass Italian player for the monthly magazine “Top Jazz 2010”.

U. T. Gandhi
Drummer, percussionist, and composer, he approached jazz in 1978. For eight years, he has been a member of the Enrico Rava's quintet “Electric Five”, touring in Italy and Europe, as well as Canada and Japan. He has recorded several music projects for the German label ECM. Moreover, he collaborates on the composition of videos and soundtracks for theater works. He has also cut his own records, some of which dedicated to the Weather Report.
