Maria Merlino - Alos (RUDI RECORDS 2017)

Starting from a strong academic background (classical and jazz) Maria Merlino, young Sicilian saxophonist, is developing a personal musical path that goes without any hesitation in the "open ground" of the Creative Music.

Alos, corresponds to a sequence of 11 original tracks, with a poetic dedication to Anthony Braxton (she played with him, in the European premiere of the "Sonic Genome", in Turin). Music with thematic parts that act as spark for collective improvvisations based on dialogue between the rhapsodic and humoral voice of the Merlino's sax, the vehemence of the electric guitar of Giancarlo Mazzù and the sound full and balanced of the bass of Domenico Mazza.
