Mop Mop

Mop Mop is a bastard performance of modern jazz based on riffs looped almost till/to monotony(from Nestor Ortiz Oderigo, Dictionary of Jazz-PBR 1961).

From this definition, Mop Mop find inspiration for their debut album, merging their characteristic sound; vibes and piano, rhythm and exotic percussion, improvised jazz, italian melodies and hint of electro-vintage.

The 11th Pill is above all a mix of latin-jazz, frenetic swing and ballads, respectful to its historical roots from which it is inspired (there are numerous citations), but in a way also dancefloor-oriented succeeding perfectly to combine mediterranean melodies and afro-american beats in a unique modern jazz interpretation.

Mop Mop is the brainchild of Andrea Benini, a multi-instrumentalist with a liking for 60s Italian soundtracks. Also a drummer for the live combo, Benini received a suggestion to take his business on wax after a successful festival date in 2002. Although The 11th Pill was first released in 2005, the album had already been recorded in 2003. It was re-released in 2006 by P-Vine.
