GIANNI VANCINI | Souls United | Progetti e Dintorni

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! SOULS UNITED is the affable musician’s debut recording and co-produced by Thomas Bank and recorded in Amsterdam. The international release features special guests Eric Marienthal, Umberto Tozzi and Andrea Mingardi. This rising star’s sax tone is rich and smooth… pleasing to the ear yet offering enough depth to capture the attention of aficionados and Smooth Jazz enthusiasts alike. The excitement Gianni captures here reminds me of how I felt when I first heard Sanborn’s UPFRONT… cool, suave, a little gritty and a lot sexy! Don’t miss this new discovery… Gianni Vancini’s SOULS UNITED is yet another one of Italy’s inspired contributions to the arts! Grazie! ~SANDY SHORE
