Some years ago Andrea Centazzo was invited by long time friend trombonist Giancarlo Schiaffini to play in a trio with vibraphonist Sergi Armaroli. The trio, named “Trisaghion”, recorded a CD in 2017 followed by occasional concerts.
In June 2919 while in Berlin to present “The Seer”, one of his multimedia solos, AC was approached by Harri Sjöström for a trio gig with bassist Matthias Bauer. The music went very well.
This led to the next natural step to add Harri to the trio and form the quartet on this CD.
Andrea proposed Harri as fourth member to Sergio Armaroli who is in fact the producer and the coordinator of this ensemble. Sergio agreed and the four went to Biella, to record this album titled “Orbits”.
The title comes from the tracks organized in a way that a player starts improvising and the others join one by one until the cycle or “orbit” is completed.
