Nine of their songs have been newly arranged by David Chalmin, Nicola Tescari and Giovanni Sollima, intertwined with new compositions on the edge of improvisation. They create a multicoloured sound atune to our times, an encounter of diverse traditions and energies.This innovative enterprise has been undertaken by Katia Labèque, unconventional pianist from a classical background to whom Miles Davies dedicated two songs, David Chalmin, alternative rocker, and Nicola Tescari, contemporary composer.
B for Bang was born out of their desire to create a dynamic of energy, movement, and curiosity - with the instinct to retain the differences of their backgrounds.
Joining them are, Massimo Pupillo (Thurston Moore from Sonic Youth/Mike Patton), and Marque Gilmore (Nitin Sawney/Talvin Singh). They also invited some of their friends to collaborate, improvise and join in the making of the album – Giovanni Sollima, Viktoria Mullova, Katell Keineg, Meg, Nadeah, Patti Smith, Daniel Day Lewis.
