What initially started as an opportunity to practice together gradually evolved into the Maridalen project. The three members found their tone in the warm harmony of double bass, trumpet and woodwind, completely without "chordal instruments". In addition, they also discovered a common enthusiasm for Swedish jazz, minimalist film music and French Impressionism! From there, the trio has developed their own musical space that both captures different mood moments and creates small stories.
The lineup of this band, uncommon in jazz, consists of pianist, composer and bandleader Raf Ferrari, bass player Andrea Colella, drummer Claudio Sbrolli and cellist Vito Stano. Their music ranges from jazz to contemporary, from classical to funk and free pop-rock. The first suite, comprised of four original compositions, are representations that Raf ascribes to himself and his musicians. The other suite, “The Seasons”, is divided into four tracks dedicated to the seasons, but linked musically through a single song without interruption.
