Dinner Music: Gianni Brezzo
lush, thematic jazz inspired by visits to an italian grandmother
Gianni Brezzo is a neo-soul and jazz focused project by Marvin Horsch, a Cologne-based producer and musician. The project began in 2013, with the group releasing a handful of EPs and full length albums since 2017. Light percussion, soft synth and a bit of soul has guided Horsch’s exploration deeper into jazz tones, resulting in sweeping, often meditative music that still sways the body.
Tutto Passa was released this year and is inspired by Horsch’s Italian roots and visits to his grandmother in Sicily. Despite the album’s recency, the sounds could fit squarely into the ‘60s or the ‘70s, much like the tracks on Napoli Segreta. The lush soundscapes transport a listener to the streets and seashores of Italy, very much staying true to the imagery of the album cover. It tells you a story, takes you on a journey, but doesn’t ask too much of you. It retains a bit of Italian grit, while paying homage to the bespoke beauty of Italy.
Tutto Passa - Gianni Brezzo:
Pair this album with:
Peach Basil Lemonade Slushy. Working through the first few weeks of summer always feels… wrong? But making a slushy in the middle of the week definitely feels much more right.
Cast Iron Pizza. It’s Tuesday and I don’t expect anyone to be making their own pizza dough after work. Go to basically any pizzeria and ask for some pizza dough. It’s usually super cheap, like $5-$10, and makes making weeknight pizza wildly simple. Pair with this root veggie and apple salad.
Thank you, thank you. Have a great evening. 💕
