By: Max Bernard Management
Gianni’s sophomore project makes it clear that “Get Your Groove On” ishis answer to funky, cool and passionate music. The CD also includes a gorgeous version of the Italian song “Ma cos’hai messo nel caffè”.His pre-release title single is #22 on USA Today and the Smooth Jazz charts in the US, and still climbing.
Gianni Vancini fulfilled part of his dream with the 2012 debut CD “Souls United” which displayed his talents as a gifted saxophone player and songwriter with a love for funky rhythms.
Gianni’s debut ushered him into the spotlight, having garnered favorable acclaim and increased popularity throughout the past year. Having grown up in Italy and listening to Maceo Parker, Miles Davis and Prince truly influenced Gianni’s style and musical taste. His talents have deep roots and his appreciation for the funk and jazz master’s is evident. In the county of great foods, history and traditions, he was able to maintain his craft in local jazz clubs while maintaining his long running sideman position with Italian star Umberto Tozzi and gained a loyal fan base.
The “Get Your Groove On” is a 10-song collection that everyone who has real passion for good music can relate too. Saxophonist Kirk Whalum lends his efforts, Jeff Lorber, vocalist Selina Albright and Kenya Hathaway are just a few of the guest talent that are included on the new release, with Swiss producer Greg Manning at the throne.
The Bonus DVD
The DVD is a 30-minute documentary of a three daylong adventure inside a luxury restaurant based in the north of Italy.
Gianni says: “72 hours with my band to combine together my two great passions, music and Italian traditional cuisine. While we were creating music, the chef was creating his own stuff. The listener just had to sit back, relax and ENJOY!! A wonderful director captured everything. That was one of my greatest experiences ever!! I would love to bring this all around the world.”
Sandy Shore, Pres. of Smooth Jazz.com wrote: “Italian master saxophonist Gianni Vancini takes the coolest parts of contemporary music and blends it together for a sophisticated, funky, stylish pop sound that reaches deep into the groove bag to deliver upbeat jazz and feel good melodies akin to David Sanborn and Grover Washington, Jr!
Manager Myron Bernard, who has managed soul/jazz artists Lynne Fiddmont, Rayford Griffin, Terry Wollman and Bassist Nate Watts, (Stevie Wonder’s Musical Director) said: “Gianni is on the rise, he has the ability and talent to make a global impact with his music and his other ventures that combine his love for cooking and creating a great musical environment at the same time. We look for his star to continue to shine with his forthcoming 2014 public release of his CD “Get Your Groove On”.
Bernard continues, “I look for the soul and jazz market to embrace Gianni’s sound, vision and spirit. Those aboard the Dave Koz cruise are in for a treat.
Eric Marienthal, Recording artist: "Gianni Vancini is one of the most exciting sax players on the scene today. You can hear the emotion that comes though his horn the moment he starts to play. It's clear that this fine musician from Italy will soon be known around that world!"
