Awesome Solar Ipse label debut recordings! “Season Two” is the second work of the duo Ninni Morgia – Marcello Magliocchi after the acclaimed “Sound Gates” (LP Ultramarine, 2011). The new album consists in 8 tracks of elegant improv-free jazz. It seems like a mix of Hendrix and Sonny Sharrock with the blinded lightness of Keiji Haino, all fused with the personal texture of the drums and the percussions which sound as an extension of human soul’s vibration.
Ninni Morgia from Sicily, a founding member of the Italian noise rock group White Tornado in the 90’s, active in NYC’s free jazz/improv scenes, has played, recorded and toured with William Parker, Daniel Carter, Peter Evans, Kevin Shea, Lee Ranaldo and many more. He was also member of the psychedelic rock outfit La Otracina (on Holy Mountain). Currently he has a new group with Silvia Kastel and Gary Smith called Brand and a industrial noise duo called Control Unit with Silvia Kastel.
Marcello Magliocchi has been active since the early 70s and has played and recorded with amazing artists like Steve Lacy, Evan Parker, Peter Kowald, Mal Waldron, John Tchicai, Joelle Leandre and countless others. He also put out his work on Andrea Centazzo’s Ictus label and is a sculptor and designer for the UFIP brand, making strange marimba-like instruments from scratch from found beach stones, along with litophones, cymbals and huge sculpture bells.
