Recorded on February 1, 2001 at Excello, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York.
Massimo Pupillo is an electric bassist with the Italian noise rock band Zu who has collaborated with everyone from avant folkie Eugene Chadbourne to former Can singer Damo Suzuki, not to mention Chicago reedist Ken Vandermark. Luckily his baggage here includes the rhythm, but not the stultifying beat of pop music. Personnel: Gianni Gebbia: alto saxophone; Massimo Pupillo: bass; Lukas Ligeti: drums. Title: The Williamsburg Sonatas Year Released: 2006 Record Label: Wallace Records.
The trio of Gianni Gebbia, Lukas Ligeti, and Massimo Pupillo has undertaken several tours in the United States, including a 2001 venture from which these recordings of The Williamsburg Sonatas originate, as well as a return jaunt in 2005. The combination of three differing European sensibilities and stylistic approaches works extremely well, apparently involving different degrees of so-called "jazz content" from gig to gig, depending on situational stimuli. In the case of the eight tracks on this CD, an important inspiration was obviously the ambience of Brooklyn, New York.
