Bonbon City is the first summery release of a two-year musical journey, researched and written by the quartet Jazzincase. The title of the first release from the album, Bon Bon, takes its inspiration from a famous Schopenhauer’s quote. It tells us that what seems like an ordinary day is the progress of every single moment, which is seen as the beauty of a fine tale, written for each of us, as allegorical sweets.
Jazzincase has several meanings: «Jazz in the suitecase» or «Jazz by chance». Everything goes through the various facets of such a versatile type of music, in fact Bonbon City embraces: swing, bossa nova, house and pop. Ten songs, eight originals, four languages, to take the listener through different emotions: a witty and bright spirited performance in French; the charm of the Brazilian world, the songwriter’s handprint on the Italian interpretations and, finally English for two published songs taken from the International landscape and re-arranged with a personal interpretation in the Jazzincase’s style. A chance encounter between 4 professional musicians to create a project dedicated to their common language: smooth jazz. A life dedicated to the music: international and national tours, original song-writing for Italian and international artists, participation in big bands, TV programs and composition of cinema and TV theme songs.
