JOOKLO DUO was formed in 2004 by Virginia Genta (tenor sax) and David Vanzan (drums), who are also the core of all the Jooklo formations. Their music is the most powerful expression in “free improvisation” nowadays, trascending every kind of stereotype and going straight to the center of Sound.
In these past eight years of restless activity, the couple has toured extensively in Europe and the USA, performing more than five-hundred concerts and tons of studio-sessions, collaborating with artists as Sonic Youth, Famodou Don Moye (Art Ensemble of Chicago), Hartmut Geerken, Makoto Kawabata, Sabu Toyozumi, Chris Corsano, Paul Flaherty, Bill Nace, C. Spencer Yeh, Burton Greene, John Blum, and many others.
From 2009, Virginia and David started also working with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, performing for “Nearly Ninety” in Madrid (April 2009, Teatro del Canal), and in London (October 2010 at the Barbican Centre), alongside Takehisa Kosugi (Taj Mahal Travellers) and John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin).
“Boss Italian woodwinds/drum duo who skronk the big bulb of freedom as hard as anyone.”
“Nonstop, relentless, frantic, frenetic, explosive super rhythmic, wildly tangled and super psychedelic next level free jazz freakout.”
“The holy ghosts of ESP-Disk’ and BYG/Actuel live in Jooklo’s sound, style, and unrepentant forward thrust, a stop-and-you-may-die kind of spiritual commitment to this music and lifestyle.”
