KEKKO FORNARELLI TRIO
Outrush @Porgy and Bess, Wien
Kekko Fornarelli will launch the new international tour showcasing his last album Outrush (Abeat, 2014) which was released a few weeks ago in Italy, on Sunday, 13th April in one of the finest jazz venues in Europe, Porgy and Bess in Wien.
With him, his fellow musicians Giorgio Vendola (doublebass) and Dario Congedo (drums), alias Kekko Fornarelli Trio.
The gig is part the Road Show #weareinpuglia, a series of events aimed at enhancing the tourism in Apulia, organized by Regione Puglia – Assessorato al Mediterraneo, Cultura e Turismo, @Pugliapromozione – Agenzia regionale del Turismo together with Puglia Sounds – programma regionale per lo sviluppo del sistema musicale.
In the same night, another great musician from Puglia, Nicola Conte with his Nicola Conte Combo.
“An incredibly personal and introspective release that with the brilliance of Kekko's harmonic movement takes one to places that can touch your heart and set your hair on fire, often at the same time. Italy is a variable gold mine for improvisational music. Kekko Fornarelli is a master but more so, he is an artist” – Brent Black (criticaljazz.com)

Almost three years after Room of mirrors (Auand, 2011), Outrush (Abeat, 2014) is the new album from Kekko Fornarelli.
After an extremely successful tour with concerts in more than twenty five countries among Australia, Asia and Europe, Room of mirrors selling thousands of copies all around the world, and the warm reception by the critics (The Guardian and The Financial Times i.e.), Kekko Fornarelli is back with the new album, Outrush (Abeat). An escape inside his own world. A complexity able to hit the audience straight in the heart and the stomach, before touching the mind. An alchemy between the musicians that carries jazz out of its borders.
Kekko Fornarelli Trio is his main project. An original interpretation of the most classical jazz formations, this ensemble featuring three Italian jazz virtuosos (Kekko Fornarelli, piano & synth, Giorgio Vendola, double bass, Dario Congedo, drums) embodies Fornarelli idea of a music to observe, more than just to listen to.
“After 10 minutes, it was evident that this classy threesome had very different stories to tell […]It was resoundingly obvious why this close-knit, thoughtful and viscerally exciting new trio are winning acclaim across Europe”, John Fordham, The Guardian
