Ilaria Capalbo Quintet (Italy/Sweden)
Mermaid Arts Centre - Matinee, Sunday, 1st May, 2.30pm

Ilaria Capalbo is a rapidly rising star of European jazz – a bassist and composer who has assembled a quintet from some of the best young talent in Sweden, where she lives.

Her recent album ‘Kaththago’ was released to rave reviews – the writing lush and shimmeringly beautiful – with music spanning the spectrum from intimate duo suites to the hard swinging sounds of a well drilled quintet.

Born and raised in Italy, Capalbo’s rich bass tone and delicate touch are complimented by the playing of a band who include such emerging young stars of Swedish jazz as Thomas Backman on alto sax and clarinet, tenor and bass saxophonist Fredrik Nordstrom, guitarist Andreas Hourdakis and drummer Fredrik Rundqvist.

Based in Stockholm, Capalbo is also co-founder of the Ilaria is also co-leader of the acclaimed Italian trio Kosmos, plays in the Swedish quartet Dolores, and is a member of Blue Note and Verve jazz pianist Chihiro Yamanaka’s European trio.

“Ilaria Capalbo is rapidly emerging as one of Italy’s most brilliant bass players.”

— Eugenio Mirti, Jazzit
