Chaussette Verte

This ten year old "next step progressive free cool tutti frutti contemporary jazz" band is active in Europe, and A.K.A. Grande Orchestra da Ballo F.lli Ruoppolo, Smooth, Gentlejazz, etc.

Today we are an Italian-French free improvisation quartet, normally playing without a written theme. We play the tunes starting the improvisation from microfragments (one note, an atmosphere, a light?). We are searching for an interplay, more co-operative than based on a competitive dialog. Trying to avoid the stereotypes (like i.e. any furious way to play free jazz) in order to reach to a kind of improvisation builded on a deeper listening between the players.
