Up until now the answer has always been in the negative but it looks as though some things are changing as this weekend the group was locked into the Barga Jazz Club with that maestro of the recording studio Andrea Guzzoletti recording five tracks for a demo disc to be released (according to the bands pr spokesman) some time in the new year.
O.K, so its not a full blown music CD but they are at least moving in the right direction so that their gradually increasing fan base can have something to listen to when Emma and the band are not available to performing live in the piazza.
Some of the forgotten swing Italiano from the 30′s, 40′s and 50′s is about to be pushed out into the light once more .
Emma e gli Aristodemo’s are: Emma Morton (cantante / singer), Keane (percussioni / percussion), Leo Gnesi (Contro Basso / Double Bass), Alessandro Rizzardi (Mandolino / Mandolin and Sax), Fabio Guazzelli (chitarra / guitar) / Lucca Giovacchini (chitarra/guitar)
This Band came together in the winter of 2009 when local musicians Alessandro Rizzardi (mandolino), Keane (Percussioni), Fabio Guazzelli (chitarra), Leo Gnesi (contro bass), and Emma Morton (cantante) found each other in Aristo’s enoteca, with instruments in hand, and exciting ideas in mind and of course, passion in heart.
A new type of swing group was born.
Focusing mainly on forgotten swing Italiano from the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s, Emma e gli Aristodemos welcome you to jump back in time and into their salotto. You may also hear something contemporary swung into Aristo gear.
We recently welcomed a new member to our group of merry men: The fabulous guitarist Luca Giovachini is now our 5th Aristodemo.
Each concert is a piece of live theatre: a typical 40’s lounge is recreated in each performance space and the audience can witness the musicians play as a family… you may even get an invite into their ‘little home’ for tea! – Articles about Emma e gli Aristodemo’s are here
