The Italian fluid music scene always gives us some interesting news that testify to a unique ability to know how to regenerate itself with originality, manifesting especially by surprising compositional and technical skills. In summary, the ability to propose always new artists and music, with respect of language and of the roots of jazz and carrying a sign of evolution and modernity. Oirtrio is a classic example. Musicians with solid technical, who have studied and metabolized the tradition and at the same time are holders of a new stylistic synthesis whose figure speaks of influences, colors and flavors from all latitudes. This album,titled “making friends”, is notable for the high quality of compositions, the interplay between the musicians, rhythmically solid. Excellent soloists, where the lyrical vein is further stigmatized by the excellent work of Klaus Gesing on bass clarinet and soprano sax. A truly amazing debut.

A RECORDING SESSION FOR SUPER HIGH-FIDELITY ENTHUSIASTS ! Picture an Italian Quintet made up of young Artists with an excellent discography already behind them; imagine a project where artistic sensitivity is combined with the highest order of sound engineering: the result is this new project by Oirquintet.The project was recorded by Al Schmitt at the renown French studio “Studios La Fabrique”, in Saint Rémy de Provence – France, with the collaboration of Steve Genewick, during a seminar heldfor technicians and sound engineers from all over the world. The mixing and editing phases were instead carried out at the recording studio Arte e Suono by Stefano Amerio, a man at the top of the game in the field of sound recording. Al Schmitt: over the course of his career he has recorded and mixed over 150 albums and was recognised with a Gold and Platinum record .He won 19 Grammy Awards, most of them as sound engineer and producer. Five of these in 2005 thanks to the work on the album by Ray Charles entitled “Genius Loves Company”.
