ALBUM INTRODUCTION:

"A new album is always a great adventure involving a fair bit of hard work. This is probably the reason why this album is named Polyfemo: there is something cyclopean and at the same time microscopic in the way our lives unfold. To better see and understand life, we sometimes have to close one eye, use a bigger lens, lay bare our thoughts.
Antonello Messina

ALBUM INTRODUCTION:

"Un vibrante progetto di esordio, quello del talento multiforme di Antonello Messina, eccezionale polistrumentista. Aziyz si presenta come un disco rigoroso, diverso perchè non rinuncia al piacere di battere nuovi sentieri e di sorprendere. Un progetto nel quale Antonello Messina è riuscito a fondere le migliori sonorità popolari con le improvvisazioni jazz che sono la cifra del suo magistero musicale."
Agostino Ingrassia


HYPOTHESIS

Silvano Borzacchiello (drums)

by Unit Records Switzerland (2016)

ALBUM INTRODUCTION:

"Hypothesis" - dahinter verbirgt sich echter, erdiger, passagenweise grooviger moderner Main-streamjazz, der es fürwahr in sich hat. Unter der Leitung des Pianisten Antonello Messina geht das Piano Süd Trio dessen Mitglieder aus Italier stammen, jedoch in der Schweiz heimisch geworden sind seinen kulturellen Wurzeln nach un stellt diese in Symbiose mit mittel- und nordeuropäischen Spielweisen. Das kontrastierende Elemen spielt hier eine wichtige Rolle: Ruhige und klang volle Stücke duellieren sich, Rhythmuswechsel un Steigerungseffekte sind verbindlicher Teil dieses facettenreichen Repertoires. "Hypothesis" überzeugt auf der ganzen Linie und hält für den entdeckungsfreudiger Hörer ein buntes Bouquet an musikalisch ausgefeilten Überraschungen parat."
