Let yourself be carried away by the endless rhythmic, tonal and melodic inventions of this trio that knows perfectly how to shift gears between adrenaline charged pieces and intense ballads that flow in a track-list, captivating, dynamic and surprising, to say the least. Jazz is creativity, energy, feeling. It is continuous originality, even when well known pieces are being played. In Lucrezio de Seta’s project with Ettore Carucci and Francesco Puglisi, what is not declared, but is at the base of everything, is playing. Playing jazz and expressing themselves through jazz. Moving across intense and elegant pieces like Confusion and Ghost, written by Carucci, or joyfully stretching out with On Green Dolphin Street, reborn here in an unexpected, alternate rhythmic version. Or A Night in Tunisia, masterfully rendered in 7/4 time and which de Seta’s drums completely redesign, leaving us the satisfaction of following the brilliant theme. After listening, the meaning of the title, and of the exclamation point will be very clear: and you will have experienced an electrifying journey back, from the music to the project it underlies. They say about Lucrezio:

“He proves to be a remarkable drummer and composer with great istincts and no ego. There’s no lack of interesting material and the band’s great Energy is contagious…”
Antonio Sanchez (Solo Artist, Pat Metheny Group)

“Lucrezio de Seta displays a great knowledge of the instrument… It’s nice to hear a traditional approach with some modern takes on how the drums should be played and all the while swinging along to the happy beat….”
Greg Hutchinson (Solo Artist, Joshua Redman, John Scofield)

“Lucrezio de Seta’s new release is a powerful musical statement, an emotional charged and expressive take on improvised idioms. A diverse set of pieces, widely ranging in form – it is a personal take on the multiculturalism that improvised music has become. Interesting at multiple levels, listeners will de light.”
William Lenihan (Professor of the Practice in Music, Director of Jazz Performance Washington University, St. Louis)
