eMPathia Jazz Duo
Looking back at the countless attempts to describe Jazz in the ensuing generations since that trumpet from New Orleans set north, drum beats are probably the most commonly cited reference. How then do we use the term Jazz in the name of a vocal and guitar duo? The eMPathia Jazz Duo comprised of vocalist Mafalda Minnozzi and guitarist Paul Ricci answer that question with spontaneous melodic variations improvised around a popular song while uniquely arranged harmonic templates shift accordingly to the pacing and breathing of the moment.
Each signature performance is not unlike those songs from the days when Jazz merged from the popular song via a soulful story told with individual expression. Drawing from the vast experience of both the duo`s artists, their present day popular song is expanded to include classics from Brazil, Italy, France and the U.S.A.
