Simone "Jazz It Up !!!" Vimercati
Another great work from my friend Tommaso. In this record he expresses once again his eclectic attitude giving us a blend of sounds between jazz, electronic and jazz.
Favorite track: No Flies For A Closed Mouth (feat. Piero Bittolo Bon).
Butterflying — the latest offering from Italian multi-instrumentalist, producer and selector, Tommaso Cappellato — is an honest celebration of musical evolution.
Inspired by a recent trip to NYC (where he spent most of his formative years) and a beat tape by definition, these eight tracks saunter between lo-fi hip hop and free jazz, from downtempo electronica to ambient bliss; the result of an open-hearted approach to discovery and time spent meticulously unearthing, rearranging and merging old and new material.

You never know what to expect from Upperground Orchestra. Another live recording by the Italian-Lebanese 4et playing spontaneous improvisations in a 1700 Villa near Venice, Italy. I play drums on it! Tommaso Cappellato
Carlos Niño delivers another beautiful and visionary testament of his love for ambient and futuristic jazz. Love the way he treats the sound of each instrument & the balance and depth in his mixes. Tommaso Cappellato
