The Atomic Bass is a musical reactor that produces notes to ‘cure’ the sufferings of nature and men. A utopia in music elaborated by Giuseppe Bassi, a long-time double bass player with a strong social sensitivity.
The Giuseppe Bassi trio “Atomic Bass” brings together international musicians and celebrates the union of two countries – Italy and Japan – with their musical traditions and the emotional nuances of their peculiar cultures.
A repertoire of original compositions and refined music, which builds an ideal bridge on which jazz meets the tradition of Japanese musical culture, in a triumph of sounds and emotions.
In the background, the positive radioactivity of music, with its ‘atomic’ power.
