"Progressive Music Exploring and Expanding Boundaries of Jazz, Funk, Ethnic, Electronic, and anything in between and beyond."
“Multi-talented musician Nick Gianni fronts this ensemble that incorporates all the elements of modern ‘nu Jazz’ with Afro-Beat/Funk and electro beats.
They are upbeat and experimental yet rooted in traditional worldbeat rhythms.” - SoulDish.com.
“Emotion pours from his horn like hot poetry on perfumed stationary” -- Cadence Magazine
“The debut release will float by as effortlessly as the sound of Nick Gianni’s flute or the various horns in play.”Newsday
New Album Coming Soon!
For their new album Nick asked keyboardist Rick Bottari to replace his piano tracks with synthesizer, added Jony Dos Santos on conga and percussion, and inspired Reggie Sylvester to trigger a vintage Formanta drum synth. While relying on longtime Evolution members On Ka'a Davis and Dmitri Ishenko, on Guitar and Bass respectively, Nick welcomed veteran horn members Matt Lavelle, Welf Dorr & Mike Irwin to bring the excitement of a full horn section. The results resemble an 80’s club vibe, with elements of P-Funk, Sun Ra & Fela. Recording live at Figure 8 with Eli Crews through Neve Console and Mastering at Sear Sound to 1/2" Tape and then strait to vinyl. Stay tuned for the much anticipated release!
