Blewitt is a group born from the meeting of three musicians to share their musical visions. The intent is to make a synthesis between classical music and jazz.
The group, composed of Stefano Proietti (piano), Oscar Cherici (electric bass and double bass) and Gian Marco De Nisi (drums), embarks on this new adventure through compositional research, original pieces, and jazz standard arrangements, seeking to fuse traditional pianistic literature with contemporary rhythms, from Neo Soul to Mediterranean ethnic music, from avant-garde music to traditional jazz. The three musicians, each coming from one of the three Conservatories of Lazio (Rome, Frosinone, Latina), develop immediately a musical and human synergy.
During 3 years of collaboration, they exhibit on various festivals and stages of international relevance, such as the International Jazz Day at Auditorium Daniele Paris in Frosinone, the 6° National Festival of Italian Conservatories, the Fara Music Festival (with an opening concert of the Mike Moreno Quartet, made up by the prestigious American musicians Aaron Parks, Matt Brewer, and Kendrick Scott), the Sibiu Jazz Festival in Romania (with a concert at the Thalia Hall), the Auditorium Ennio Morricone of the Tor Vergata University in Rome, Emergency – Music and words with open arms (benefit concert at Piazza del Popolo in Rome, where they won the Audience Award), Fly Me to the Moon Festival (tour in various locations around Italy), Alexanderplatz Jazz Club in Rome.
Moreover, they won the prestigious Excellentissimus Award for the “Other Stage” section, in the context of the international award “Le Cattedrali Letterarie Europee”, over time given to illustrious people like: Umberto Eco, Meryl Streep, Roberto Benigni, Renzo Arbore.
“How does any of this lend to the creation of a peaceful society you ask? It begins with a cause. Your causes create the effects that shape your future and the future of all those around you. Be the leaders in the movie of your life. You are the director, producer, and actor. Be bold and tirelessly compassionate as you dance through the voyage that is this lifetime.”
