the best of Gypsy, Klezmer, Indian and everywhere in-between
Jazz violinist Anthony Salvo presents his new group, Fortunato, a virtuosic ensemble bringing the best of Gypsy, Klezmer, Indian, Latin and African traditions into a jazz setting. Embodying a variety of the world’s musical cultures, Fortunato draws on both classical and jazz idioms, bringing a new, exciting energy to jazz improvisation and crossover fusion. The music is upbeat, invigorating and sometimes transcendent. Their current repertoire includes Pat Metheny, Chick Corea, Shakti, as well as Anthony’s original compositions. Joining Anthony will be Charles Parker Mertins (bass), Alexios Anest (guitar) and Andy Skellenger (tabla and percussion).
