Jazz or rock band? Both. No need for classifications with Quintorigo: versatile as a few other Italian bands this quartet loves to shuffle the pack, going beyond the boundaries and clichés of jazz, as well as classical music. All this brings a very particular instrumental composition with sax, violin, cello and double bass, as well as other instruments. All this allows the group to deal with different musical materials with originality: just think about the projects dedicated to Charles Mingus, Jimi Hendrix and Frank Zappa, music geniuses approached with no reverential fear, but with humility and personality. The latest work by Quintorigo is titled Opposites, an album that offers a significant and exhaustive overview of the stylistic direction of the group from Romagna, ranging from jazz to classical-contemporary music, from rock and progressive to adventurous sound explorations. The double CD alternates original tracks and re-readings of pieces by Ornette Coleman (Congeniality), Oliver Nelson (Stolen Moments), Thelonious Monk (Well You Need not and Think of One), Dave Brubeck (the famous Blue Rondo A La Turk), Kurt Weill (Alabama Song), David Bowie (Space Oddity) and even Rage Against The Machine (Killing In The Name). In short, in the music of the Quintorigo the opposites meet and interact.
