Quintet PDF


The "Quintetto PDF" was born as "Trio JC" in 2008.

He performed for years in different contexts (clubs, clubs, theaters, squares) immediately encountering appreciation from the public.

Starting from the standards, the group moves in search of new creative experiences, finally landing in executive modes based exclusively on improvisation, exploiting the particularity of the tools used.

The goal of the group is the search for an ever greater executive understanding, which takes its cue from drawings indicating the expressive methods and sometimes the tonalities.


The members of the group are:

  • Dario Cardelli - Chiviola

  • Pier Lego - Bass

  • Tobias Winter - Guitar with effects

  • Fedele Stucchi -Trombone - Lisarda

  • Daniel Kolle - Ethnic percussion - Voice

True Voices Sax Quartet

is a group of four saxophonists (David Brutti, Daniele Manciocchi, Davide Grottelli and Carlo Micheli) each coming from different musical experiences ranging from funk to jazz to classical, passing through other styles and musical genres.

The result of the ensemble is the creation of a very particular sound deriving from original arrangements of pieces that were not originally designed for this formation and which, in the adaptation, find a new rhythmic and harmonic guise.

The four saxophonists, who have as their common denominator the handcrafted instruments of the Italian factory Rampone and Cazzani, try their hand at a repertoire that is mostly inspired by famous songs of the 70s revisited in an original way for acoustic training.
