Don Karate is a kind of (un)expected deviation: it is the less-and-less-solo project of Stefano Tamborrino, one of the most requested and appreciated jazz drummers, not only in Italy. Allergic to labels and limitations of any kind, for the second time after the first official work I Dance To The Silence, with Don Karate he takes his technical and compositional baggage accumulated in years of concerts and collaborations around the world and he mixes it with hip-hop, cinematic melodies, superimposing them to broken grooves, grafting them with electronics, creating completely new, warm, unexpected and unpredictable sound solutions. Hard to label, just like he wanted.
A year after the debut, Don Karate is back onstage releasing the second, homonymous, LP for the Original Cultures label. The new album is the testimony of a journey into a musical universe composed of electronic nebulae, hip hop grooves and melodies torn to listen that touch classical and contemporary music without disdaining pop music.
Along with Tamborrino, to make real what for many other musicians is not even theorizable, there will also be Simone Graziano and Francesco Ponticelli, two huge personalities of the European jazz scene.
