Louder Than War previews Calibro 35’s show at The Jazz Cafe
Calibro 35 is a worldwide touring instrumental crime funk project out of Italy. The band started back in 2007 when producer Tommaso Colliva invited the best musicians from the contemporary alternative/indie scene to record some golden age soundtracks by Maestros such as Morricone, Bacalov, Micalizzi and Trovajoli, trying to resuscitate the funk side of Italian film music so loved by directors Quentin Tarantino and Steven Soderberg amongst others. All musicans were (and still are) amongst the most sought after Italian alternative session players with collaborations ranging from Mike Patton to Damo Suzuki (from CAN) to Stewart Copeland to John Parish and many others.
From 2008 Calibro 35 has released four full length albums that has been distributed worldwide giving good press exposure to the band on both side of the ocean. Band has been described as “Italian soundtrack funk that sounds like Goblin recording at Stax!” (Waxpoetics Mag) while Alarm Press wrote “Formed to recreate the funky and creepy Italian soundtracks of the 1970s, Milan’s Calibro 35 has evolved into something much more, creating original pieces that rival some of their inspirations in range and “jam kicking”.
