Welcome to some new stunning jazz-prog from Italy!
“MST” is an instrumental combo defined as a jazz-rock-prog band formed in Bergamo, Italy in 2002. As a matter of fact the trio made up of synth-guitar player Rudy Corbetta, drummer Vittorio Bonadei and 4/5 strings bass player Alberto Bigoni, aspires to overcome the above mentioned definition. The self-explanatory name of the group indicates a musical direction tied up to modal ‘fragrance’ with a modern and relevant harmonic approach enriched with an unconventional use of MIDI devices.
Miles Davis’ “Kind of Blue” and “Bitches of Brew” were and remain the pathways where the group musically walks and tries to express its ideas. The variegated musical experiences take the tunes to a perfect blend of rock-fusion structures with jazz improvisations. Modal sound trio performs and records live without any kind of loop or overdubs wizardry.
