Francesco Orio Trio’s leitmotiv is Word: all compositions are built upon Voice musicals aspects and spoken text, in many different ways. For this reason Orio’s music has deep roots in the European sacred and folkloristic music, with original melodies and Gregorian chant’s suggestions, reworked with proto-minimalistic patterns from the Notre-Dame School; a bridge between the very first written music we have in Europe, the electro-acoustic contemporary modern techniques and improvisation. A composition idea that looks at the singular track and at the whole work. The band won Nuove Generazioni Jazz 2019 (IT), 12Points Festival 2017, Conad Jazz Contest 2016 (IT).
Francesco has a Master in Jazz Piano at “G.Nicolini” Conservatory in Piacenza with 110/110 cum laude and honorable mention. Davide is an outstanding jazz and contemporary music drummer, well-known for his eclecticism, while Simone is a composer, jazz, classical and contemporary bass player. He has 3 albums as a bandleader and he teaches in Composition at Conservatory at Modena and Carpi.
