A project conceived and directed by Massimo Pirone and his Big Fat Band based on original compositions and arrangements written specifically for the suite, Journey, which, in the constant research for singular sounds, aims to recreate and interpret the sense of melancholy, suffering and great hope arisen from these journeys in search of salvation. A project entirely dedicated to those people who are at the mercy of the sea facing a journey to a new life, forced to make often extreme sacrifices in order to escape from a difficult situation. Jazz music has been, and still is, the synthesis of this global diaspora, where African polyrhythm meets Arabic melodies and the oriental chromatic scale.
