Opus Trio

Originally conceived by tour director Nico Scotti, Opus Trio features Ralph Moore, hailing from Brixton, on tenor saxophone (Horace Silver, Roy Haynes, Darrel Grant, Freddie Hubbard, Gene Harris), New York-based drummer Anthony Pinciotti (Pat Metheny, Hush Point, Jeremy Steig, Randy Brecker, Gary Bartz), and bassist Giuseppe Bassi, hailing from Puglia and aptly named (Schema Quartet, La Banda degli Ornesti, Street Jazz Unit).
This trio takes us on a journey into jazz that evokes the atmosphere of New York jazz clubs, with warm compositions and a bass as round as a koala, making you want to dance between sips of whisky, with Ralph Moore on saxophone shining brighter than ever, drummer Anthony Pinciotti, whose playing is always incredibly precise and of high quality, and the discovery for me of this genius bassist, Giuseppe Bassi, who is inventive, surprising, and perfectly integrated into this remarkable trio.
Specifically created for an Italian tour scheduled for November 2022, it was during the rehearsals for these concerts that the band members knew something special was happening, and the idea for the “In Studio” sessions and album was born.
