New Beginning Quartet: ‘Re-imagining the Beatles’
Sunday 28 May 2019
Gaetano Partipilo (Saxes), Jonathan Gee (Piano), Giuseppe Bassi (Bass), Fabio Accardi (Drums)

Leading UK pianist and vocalist Jonathan Gee brings a new project created in early 2018 between himself and three great musicians from the Puglia region of southern Italy.
It features the new rising star of Italian jazz on alto sax, Gaetano Partipilo with one of the most dynamic rhythm sections on the European scene.

Their repertoire combines re-imaginings of Beatles tunes with self-penned compositions of Jonathan and Gaetano. This music has been recorded and an album release is imminent.

Jonathan Gee, has eight albums to his name, and has worked in the bands of American jazz stars; Pharoah Sanders, Mark Murphy and David Murray
"Gee is one of European jazz's most celebrated musicians. His music is precise, lucid and original, and at times breathtakingly lyrical." Visions of Britain

Gaetano Partipilo is known for an original style characterised by a strong mixture of contemporary & mainstream jazz. His latest album Daylight is on the label of the godfather of Italian jazz, Paolo Fresu. He has played with everybody from Jason Moran & Dee Dee Bridgewater to Billy Cobham.

“Partipilo is a complete-game player whose tone and phraseology is an exciting amalgam of alto history” All About Jazz

Giuseppe Bassi, one of the most in demand bassists in Italy for the last 20 years, has a number of highly praised albums to his name as well as having graced the bands of Lew Tabackin and pianists Dado Moroni, John Hicks and Mal Waldron.

Fabio Accardi has performed at festivals around the world, from North Sea, Hong Kong, in Chicago and Paris, often as a band leader, and has a number of album releases, particularly with his acclaimed band Precious. He’s toured with US sax stars Greg Osby and Dave Liebman
