ANTONIO FLINTA QUARTET

“The group has a swinging, soulful sound and the ability to work grooves with

cool precision…there’s a bit of McCoy Tyner in Antonio Flinta’s attack and a touch

of Bill Evans in his improvisations” Cadence Magazine (USA)

“The enviable interplay they show is probably the focal point of their jazz playing"

Giuseppe Mavilla "Jazzitalia"

“A wonderful balance between technical proficiency, knowledge of jazz history and

contemporary creativity" Bruno Pollacci - "Animajazz"

OUR MUSIC ....

Original compositions and intense interplay are the means to explore the texture and colour, a free improvisation and standard jazz song formd, groovy rhythms and open spaces.

To follow the creative flow of the moment, to create new paths on the spot, or to get lost in a

musical space, are all key features of this Quartet.

And the opportunity of the four members of the band to interact, and to combine different musical elements makes the music more open, freer, but also more compact. Always bearing in mind that music – the universal language - must communicate.
