VibraForte is the result of the meeting in Berlin of the Florentine vibraphonist Alessandro Di Puccio and the Italian pianist Antonello Marafioti, resident in Berlin since 1994.
The two musicians recognize themselves in the great tradition of Jazz which they enrich with the sense of melody typical of Italians.
VibraForte’s repertoire includes well known Jazz standards, Italian music and original compositions.
Piano and vibraphone are very similar instruments in their function and they move more or less in the same tonal range. Alessandro Di Puccio and Antonello Marafioti therefore create melodic improvisational plots that converge in the musical theme.
VibraForte can be extended to a quartet with double bass and drum set.
Following a sample of the quartet work.
