Rino Nicolosi, Dino Cerruti, and Andrea Marchesini are three busy musicians from Liguria - Italy.
After working together in many different situations, their hunger for high quality jazz-influenced instrumental
"global" music brought them together again, this time for a top-notch repertoire
of originals and much celebrated latin jazz & fusion classics
Black Batik, a funny name that came up after a bit of thinking. A framed batik from Sri Lanka has followed drummer Andrea
Marchesini throughout his music career. Brought home as a present from his family after a long vacation in the east,
it represents a percussion player, a totally black unique drawing which has been the background to hours of listening
to great music ever since the '70s. Here it is now, representing the black aspect of our music and the openness to all other
music forms from around the world.
