Returning to The Hampstead Jazz Club stage is exceptional Saxophonist Tommaso Starace with his “Power of 3” Ensemble!

Italo-Australian saxophonist Tommaso Starace embarks on his 10th recording this time yet again with a new format: Saxophone, Piano, and Electric Bass.

Across the years Starace has enjoyed trying to explore the sound of a band by combining different instruments and musicians.

In this specific case he collaborates with two musicians he has  enjoyed very much in the past making music with:

Laurence Cottle on Electric bass and Paul Edis on piano.

Two exceptional musicians who are very busy as side men but also as band leaders with Laurence Cottle being both in the UK but also around the World a renown Master of the electric bass.

Starace has performed in many established jazz clubs and festivals around the world which include: The Blue Note Milano, Providencia International Jazz festival de Santiago del Chile, Eleuthera Jazz Festival – Bahaman, London Jazz Festival, MITO Festival, Brecon Jazz Festival, Nuoro Jazz Festival, Luzern jazz Festival, Purcell Room, and many more.

He has collaborated with some of the great living jazz artists of today which include:

Dave O’Higgins, Paolo Fresu, Kenny Wheeler, Roger Beaujolais, Fabrizio Bosso, Dave Liebman to mention a few.

The Trio will perform a variety of styles of music from past to present composers and not only confined to the Jazz tradition. So you’ll be able to hear music by Charlie Parker, Sam Jones, Bobby Timmons, Chick Corea, Michel Petrucciani but also by composers such as Ennio Morricone, Stevie Wonder, Pino Daniele.

“Starace is an increasingly individual musician, a highly accomplished technician with a gift for melody but with an additional facility to see ‘the big picture .” – ‘The Jazzman’ Review
