Julien Colarossi

The Julien Colarossi Organ Trio

We are happy to introduce the final act of our lineup. This year the Italian Fusion Festival presents The Julien Colarossi Organ Trio.

Despite the name, the Julien Colarossi Organ Trio is led by three distinct voices, working together in harmony and syncopation to make ‘Music’ the only real leader of the band.

This tight and groovy band draws inspiration from the straight ahead jazz classic organ trio sound of Jimmy Smith, all the way to the more modern Larry Goldings trio.The rhythm section features the very experienced Spanish drummer Gonzalo Del Val and the Irish Organ player Darragh Hennessy making for a very tasteful, solid and synchronized unit.

Floating in and out with the rhythm section, Julien Colarossi is known as a ‘dyed in the wool jazzer’ but he also brings a lyrical quality to his guitar playing from his roots deep in the mountains of beautiful “Val Di Comino” in Italy.

Their longstanding collaboration is quite evident in the original material that the band presents. The band recorded their first album in March 2019.

Julien has collaborated with many of Ireland’s finest jazz musicians, his professionalism, his ductility and his dedication to music has made him one of the most hired guitarist in the Irish scene. At the moment he’s actively involved in these projects: the Julien Colarossi Quartet, Francesco Turrisi Trio, Phisqa, the Riona Sally Hartman’s Band, Edel Meade Quintet, the Hot House Big Band.

Just for the Italian Fusion Festival the Julien Colarossi Organ Trio will play a few songs with the Irish jazz singer from Cork Laoise Leahy.

The Jaffa Cakes

The Jaffa Cakes

We are happy to introduce the Swing part of our lineup. This year the Italian Fusion Festival presents The Jaffa Cakes.

Can you imagine a cover band who arranges the most famous songs in different styles and genre, still keeping their “sing-along” peculiarity? Miss Phoenix & The Jaffa Cakes  is an original band based in Dublin that twists world famous songs into different unique versions, mostly jazz, swing, blues, combining post-modern flavours creating their own signature sound.

Started as a standard Jazz duet (piano and vocals), they found this new way to perform almost as a joke, but given that the result was unexpectedly remarkable, they decided to leave the standard jazz project and create the Jaffa Cakes. All the performers are Italian.

They met by coincidence in Dublin and after a jam session decided to work together. Paolo Zuddas on the drums, Dario Rodighiero on the piano and vocals, Plinny Phoenix as lead singer.

At the Radio Dublino Festival, The Jaffa Cakes will go back to origins, performing again as duet, piano and voice.
