The "Pippi Dimonte 5tet" is formed in 2014 when a sax player and a trumpet player join the funk-fusion trio "Overcroded Duo" born in 2010. This new formation, with the substitution of the electric bass with an upright bass, is able to explore new sounds which comes from the diffrent musical backgrounds of every member of the band, from classical music to funky and from swing to latin. In 2015 the band was awarded in a few festivals, Tuscia In Jazz, Jimmy Woode European Jazz Award, Fara Jazz Music Festival and National Festival Of Italina Conservatory. In 2016 the band published their first album, made of all original tracks, "Hieronymus" with the label Fono Fabrique.
