Doctor 3 - A Jazz Concert

Danilo Rea/piano - Enzo Pietropaoli/Bass - Fabrizio Sferra/Drums

Doctor 3 had experienced a huge success, with both critics and the public, since the band’s inception and throughout the initial eleven years of activity. Their albums received numerous awards such as Best Jazz Album (in 1998,1999, and 2001). The band performed in Italy where they received an enthusiastic reaction, not only by the jazz audience, and their fame rapidly increased throughout Europe, the USA, China, Brazil and North Africa. However, as often happens due to transitions being unavoidable and physiological, the band broke up in 2009. This period, however, was not idle or fruitless as the artists benefited from the separation to explore new ideas and different experiences. In 2014, Danilo Rea, Enzo Pietropaoli and Fabrizio Sferra decide to meet in order to continue their journey together, melding their creative influences with fresh enthusiasm and sharing their growth as individual performers during those years spent apart. Not long after, in May 2014, they record their new album Doctor 3 (released by Music Park Records and Jando Music), to be followed by a tour throughout Italy, with their reunion debut concert taking place on June 8 at the Auditorium Parco della Musica of Rome. The design and concept of this innovative record project single it out from the previous ones. There aren’t any unpredictable music incursions from one song to another, although this creative process cannot be precluded from live performances. A constant factor remains the band’s unique stylistic hallmark, unaltered for the past two decades, with their repertoire being accessible to all audience genres. Among the 12 songs selected for the album, a large number are of the 60s and 70s: David Bowie, The Doors, The Bee Gees, The Beatles, Henry Mancini, Carole King, Leonard Cohen, and dig into the origins of jazz with Irving Berlin standards. Doctor 3’s musical journey continues with still many stories to tell.

Danilo Rea, Enzo Pietropaoli, and Fabrizio Sferra make up jazz trio Doctor 3, the prolific three-time winner of Musica Jazz's Best Italian Jazz Group of the Year. Their daring improvisations and reimagined compositions are influenced by artists ranging from the Beatles to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Righteous Brothers to Sting, and Domenico Modugno to Tom Waits.The event is being co-produced with the Embassy of Italy and Teatru Manoel.
