The young Neapolitan artist performs not only as vocalist but also as pianist, together with the stylish and steadfast bassist Daniele Sorrentino and the unfaltering drummer Lorenzo Tucci.
Ricci taps into the great American songbook classics sung by the legendary jazz singers, with timeless standards such as “You Don’t Know Me” and “God Only Knows”, as well some famous classics of the Italian repertoire, namely “Ciao Ciao Bambina”, revisiting them in a very personal manner.
The trio’s programme also features many of Ricci’s original compositions.
Ricci and his trio give special emphasis to modern sonorities, improvisation and musical contamination, which makes for a rich and unpredictable concert.
