“Featuring Marc Ribot + A Turtle Soup” is an ambitious double cd containing two sessions by the new quartet led by Giovanni Maier, “Technicolor”. Giovanni Maier is a skilled and critically acclaimed double bass player. His style is strong and intense, his attack on strings thunderous and precise. Among his many prestigious collaborations over the years: the famous “Italian Instabile Orchestra” and Enrico Rava (most famous Italian jazzman) Electric Quintet. Giovanni has just been voted “best Italian bass player” in the prestigious “Musica Jazz” magazine 2007 year’s end poll. With Technicolor Maier switches to electric bass, with a particular line-up with two electric keyboards (keyboards wizards Alfonso Santimone and Giorgio Pacorig) plus rhythm section (Maier plus drums rising star Zeno De Rossi).
