The new musical project by producer and pianist Angelo Mastronardi.
In this new work, pianist and producer Angelo Mastronardi seeks a new balance between the interaction of the piano trio formed by Paolo Romano(electric bass), Gianluca Aceto(semi-acoustic bass) and Paolo Colazzo(drums) and the tonal possibilities offered. by electric instruments and synthesizers, played by the leader Angelo Mastronardi (piano, fender rhodes & synth) and by the beatmaker Bonbooze(synth & drum machine), together with the winds played by Emanuele Coluccia(alto and tenor saxophone) and by Marco Gianfreda (trumpet).
The pianist starts from seven of his compositions and involves the musicians in a process of sharing ideas and arrangements. The result is a music that perfectly blends writing and improvisation. A research that goes further to redesign the idea of structure and bring together different languages in a new form. Ultimately an aesthetic manifesto of the GleAM label and its more transversal editorial line.

Eclectic painist who combines the tradition of jazz with new languages. his compositions and his language in improvisation are recognized by critics since his debut in piano trio (Like At The Beginning/Dodicilune 2014). He began his self-taught musical journey by immediately flanking classical studies with improvisation. He attended the Tuscia seminars in Jazz Summer Camp 2012 with Aaron Goldberg, Donny McClaslin, Scott Colley and Antonio Sanchez. In 2016 he followed the clinics of Berklee College in Boston at Umbria Jazz with the American pianist Kevin Harris and performed inside the Festival alongside the organist Dennis Montgomery III and in the big band directed by the double bass player Paul del Nero. He performs in jazz clubs, festivals and festivals all over the world. In 2017 he founded the record label GleAM Records with which he produces, in addition to his own music, emerging artists of the national and international jazz scene.
