Salotto jazz all'IIC: Andrea Marcelli con Morten Halle e Jo Fougner Skaansar

Incontro jazz italo-norvegese. Il percussionista e compositore romano Andrea Marcelli torna a suonare ad Oslo, presentando il suo nuovo album "The Invisible Child", un misto con sue composizioni e brani di compositori rinomati quali Giuseppe Verdi. Si presenta insieme a due musicisti di spicco norvegese, il sassofonista lirico Morten Halle e il contrabassista dinamico Jo Fougner Skaansar. Pezzi sia norvegesi che italilani in questo evento speciale di jazz acustico fondato sul dialogo musicale di ritmi e melodie belli ed orecchiabili.  
Il gruppo si è di recente esibito al "5th Eunic Jazz Festival" di Berlino.

"The European Real Book" and "The Digital Real Book part two".

- Wayne Shorter wrote: "Andrea Marcelli's music is vibrant and thought-provoking as today's events. Andrea is such a chameleon. When I first heard his music, it struck me that he played drums,clarinet, percussion, keyboards and composed in a variety of styles
that defied classification, moreover, his display of sensitivity and creative approach to the work produced."

- John Kelman (
....Marcelli's compositions transcend simple melody, transporting the listener to places known and unknown, eliciting hidden emotions... Beyond the Blue represents something of a quantum leap for Marcelli as
a player, but more notably as a writer. There's a maturity of concept,a clarity of vision, that makes Beyond the Blue something of awatershed for Marcelli....
