Çeşni Trio - Original music inspired by the Ottoman Art Music Tradition

Tev Stevig - tanbur, fretless guitar, alterna-telli
Michael K. Harrist - contrabass, yayli tanbur, ney
Fabio Pirozzolo - darbuka, riq, bendir, cajon, tombak, armenian dhol
We've been working on new material and rearranging old pieces.  We will include Ross Dalycompositions in this months program.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWJoGzYKqhQ

************

At turns romantic and elegant, vivacious and playful, the music of Çeşni Trio is grounded in the flavors (çeşniler) of Turkish makam music while remaining deeply personal and contemporary. The ensemble guides the listener from dove-tailing contemplative melodies to odd-metered tunes that throw caution to the wind. A well placed breath opens the ceiling, an evocative ornament opens the heart.

Stevig and Harrist first met in Istanbul in 2010. Back home in Boston, MA they found themselves playing and studying Ottoman art music together in Orkestra Marhaba. As an idea for a trio began to take hold, the group found kinship with Pirozzolo and Çeşni Trio was born.

A modal music tradition, Türk sanat müziği (Turkish art music) developed in the urban areas of the Ottoman Empire and has a history of over 500 years. The tradition includes a wide range of repertoire, composers, and practitioners. Çeşni Trio draws from this great tradition and the more modern stylings of contemporary musician-composers such as Erkan Oğur, Ross Daly, Murat Aydemir, and Efrén López.

During his active international career lasting more than three decades, Italian saxophonist, composer and pedagogue Roberto Ottaviano has been considered one of the leading and influential European voices. He got into music as self-taught drummer and flutist, studied clarinet at the Conservatory, and later on, mesmerized by the music of Lester Young and John Coltrane, started learning to play saxophone independently.

Thanks to the accidental meeting with Steve Lacy, his model and adviser, Ottaviano honed his skills under Lacy’s tutelage during 1980–1986 partly in France partly in Italy. While in the USA he studied under Ran Blake, Bill Russo and George Russell, and in Europe received instructions in composition from Giacomo Manzoni and Luigi Nono, as well as attended master classes and workshops led by other music coryphées.

Ottaviano collaborated and recorded with a number of European and American luminaries including Dizzy Gillespie, Art Farmer, Mal Waldron, Albert Mangelsdorff, Chet Baker, Enrico Rava, Georg Grawe, Franz Koglmann, Barre Phillips, Keith Tippett, Giorgio Gaslini, Ray Anderson, Steve Swallow, Irene Schweizer, Kenny Wheeler, Ran Blake, Henry Texier, Paul Bley, Aldo Romano, Myra Melford, Tony Oxley, Misha Mengelberg, Nguyen Le, Han Bennink, Mark Dresser, John Taylor, Graham Haynes, Myra Melford, Tony Oxley, Ralph Alessi, Marc Ducret, Martin France,Francis Bebey, Trilok Gurtu, Lamina Kontè, "Singing Drums" and  the European Chamber Ensemble of Pierre Favre, A.Andersen , and many others.

In addition to directing his own groups,as the QuatkTet with Alexander Hawkins, Michael Formanek and Gerry Hemingway, is part of the Italian Instabile Orchestra and Canto General with Louis Moholo.
Ottaviano admits, that his music is greatly influenced by his European culture as well as other medias – theatre, dance, film, poetry and visual art.

The musician has travelled all around Europe, toured in the USA, Canada, India, Japan, Mexico, Thailand, Russia, Morocco, Algeria, Senegal, Cameroon and other exotic countries. His discography amounts to 69 albums, 13 of which as a leader for such label like  Red , Splasc (h), Soul Note , Dodicilune , Hat Art, Intakt , ECM, DIW and Ogun .

He is chairman of the Jazz Department in the Conservatoire of his Hometown.
