"Andrea Goretti's music is highly introspective and meditative. The virtuosity lays below the surface, in the clever and controlled use of dynamics and harmony. Especially in his piano solo music, he is able to evoke subconscious feelings, far from the chaotic world in which we live. Andrea Goretti is working to achieve an original aesthetic combining modern jazz trends with classical and contemporary music. In his music you can hear a chorale or something like a two-voices invention in the middle of a free improvisation or a clusters'line."
A Light in the Darkness
“T.T.T. X”, studio recording
Piano, sax & drums is an unusual combo in jazz music: hence the name of the trio. The absence of the double-bass leaves more freedom for an harmonic interplay between piano and saxophone, merged with modern drums grooves.

SILENT FILMS SOUNDTRACK
My interest in cinema led me to play and create new original soundtracks to some silent films, such as:
The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, R. Wiene, Germany, 1920
A page of madness, T. Kinugasa, Japan, 1926
L'Inferno, G. De Liguoro, A. Padovan, F. Bertolini, Italy, 1911
Abwege [The devious path] , G. W. Pabst, Germany, 1928
If you are interested in original soundtracks for other movies, feel free to contact me.
A TRIBUTE TO JOHN TAYLOR
The music of John Taylor has fascinated me so much that I decided it had to be the topic of my thesis at the Conservatorio "A.Boito" of Parma (bachelor in Jazz Piano, supervisor: Alberto Tacchini). On YouTube you can hear:
Ambleside (John Taylor) - with Gabriele Fava on soprano sax
THE MUSIC OF THE JOHN ABERCROMBIE QUARTET (1979-1981)
This project was born as Marcello Mangiavacca (el. guitar) 's thesis at Conservatory of Parma. We play the music of the John Abercrombie Quartet recorded for ECM at the end of the 70's (in the albums Arcade, Abercrombie Quartet, M).
