Sensitive, discreet, reflective, Elisabetta Serio instills in her music a double aesthetics alchemy: in her pianism melds, with a measured balance, an elegiac lyricism to a light rhythmic ripple. Sedici ("16"), edited by Via Veneto Jazz, includes in it's title a lucky and dear numerology to the Neapolitan pianist.
In her new work, Elisabetta gives her listeners a new prospective and with the trio piano formula trial, and proposes nine original tracks in a jazz key led by a suspended, poetic, and dream-like atmosphere in which she does not scorn any referee to neither the "masters", nor the world icons of contemporary music. Elisabetta's compositional liveliness and pianistic lexicon are exalted by the empathetic groove of Marco de Tilla's double bass and Leonardo de Lorenzo's percussive drumming.
They are both comfortable with a symbiotic team game which mixes simultaneously, an indirect abstraction and a common feeling of visceral tension. Sarah Jane Morris's voice in the world form of "Afrika", Fulvio Sigurtà's trumpet playing a delicate melody in "Il Cielo Sotto Di Me", and Jerry Popolo's tenor saxophone playing in a funky mode "Rumors", enhances the trio chromatic palette. This gives an additional value to the record, which has an enchanting Mediterranean essence and synthesis of the multiple and gratifying experience lived by the leader (above all Mr. P) dedicated to her mentor and friend Pino Daniele.
