Andrea Esposito from Italy

Artist History

When I first met Luca Chiaraluce I immediately felt that we could start a productive collaboration. Luca and I come from totally different musical backgrounds, he is a musician as well as a sculptor, with exclusively jazz musical experience, while I have studied classical and flamenco guitar: we might say that we were at the antipodes.

Starting from that meeting a common path began, leading to deep mutual understanding, both at the personal and at the musical level. The outcomes were several professional collaboration projects, including "Eclectico" published in 2002. Today, we are giving birth to a further composing effort: "Antipodi" (“Antipodes”). 
We have created guitar-double bass duo pieces to limit any possible “contamination” that might lead us away from our common path.
I hope you will not be misled by my sole authorship of our music, Luca is an integral part of this project, not just its mere performer: his double-bass plays in total freedom, obeying solely to harmonic rules. 

In this album I play a classical guitar that I designed myself, made by Carlos Michelutti, an experienced and sensible Argentinian luthier. Luca plays an originally shaped double-bass carved by himself, that utters a unique sound.

It would be limiting to define our music as jazz music, although the majority of our pieces follow the typical jazz structure containing a theme, followed by improvisation and a finale. Our rhythmic patterns, harmonics and melodies evoke all the shades from bossanova to ethnic music, through classical music and jazz. 

I deeply believe that music should stir emotions in those who listen to it, and I hope that our album will lead you to experience all the emotions it gave us. Enjoy listening.

"Antipodi" by Andrea Esposito (World Artist from Italy)
POSTED BY: momof5pacs POSTED ON: 19 Jan 2009 06:57 PM

RadioIndy is pleased to present Andrea Esposito with a GrIndie Award for the CD "Antìpodi"

“Antìpodi” by Andrea Esposito is a collection of beautiful acoustic guitar and double-bass duo pieces that incorporate a variety of styles and influences including classical, flamenco, Brazilian, and jazz. The guitar style of Esposito is complimented extremely well by the double-bass of Luca Chiaraluce, with each musician contributing to each composition both individually as well as collectively. The majority of the tunes have a theme, followed by an improvisational section, and then a finale. Listen to the fittingly titled “Freedom,” a prime example of their ability to stay within the harmonic structure of the tune while also having the freedom to improvise. Chiaraluce provides a spacious groove, allowing Esposito to weave his guitar lines through the framework of the song. “Beijo” is a gorgeous bossa-nova piece, with Esposito providing a beautiful melody over Chiaraluce’s supportive, continuous groove. The Flamenco-influenced “Zàngola” is another fantastic track, offering a brilliant melody and a danceable rhythm. “Senza Rete” is of a free, ethnic nature, creating an airy, stimulating mood and texture. The Brazilian flavor of “Ansia” features a great swinging rhythm and spirited interaction between the two musicians. This music would be appealing to fans of jazz, acoustic, and new age music, as well as most anyone who enjoys improvised instrumental music.
