JazSet, was created in 2013 from an idea by Gilberto Bonetto and Edoardo Luparello, two musicians who are
active in several musical areas, who are trained jazz performers and share a passion for improvisation. Their
initial repertoire focused on original pieces, the character of which reflected Gilberto’s training, his piano studies
(classical and jazz) and his evolution as a composer.
The great names of the past, like Maurice Ravel, and Claude Debussy, met those from more recent years, like
Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington, and Bill Evans. During its performances Jazset expresses a free interplay,
occasionally walking away from strict classical jazz to meet more funky forms of interpretation.
In 2014 they recorded the album “Postcards” under the label GB Music, the group adding Luca Russo to play
the bass, and recording two of the pieces with a string quartet.
The album is distributed on physical CD and digital download also in Japan, where it has been much
The “Postcards” concert has been held on various location, including Turin’s Jazz Club, Vicenza’s Bar Borsa, La
Cade Du 38 in Paris within the festival “Jazz sur la Seine”, and at the Banco Theatre in Switzerland.
In 2016 producer Marco Andrioletti connected with the duo and they developed a new concert and a specific
program with the vocal ensemble L’Una e Cinque. With this setting they created a live video of Autumn Leaves
(with more than 1,000 views on social media on the very day of its posting) and recorded some new pieces.
Their new concert is called “Italian Postcards” (with piano, bass, and drums), and includes some of the CD’s
tracks plus some new pieces and the jazz reinterpretation of important and well known Italian melodies and
songs by Lucio Battisti, Paolo Conte, Pino Daniele, Ivan Graziani, Nino Rota, Giacomo Puccini, Ennio Morricone.

includes 12 new pieces, two of which were recorded with a
string quartet, and two different versions of Bill Evans’ Very Early. The
idea of Postcards came from sentences that were used to refer to each
piece to identify it during rehearsals. The album cover is by Ugo Nespolo,
a gift the celebrated artist and music patron wanted to give to the group.
Postcards is available on CD under the label GB Music (Rome). Some
pieces were given a new pop editing and distributed under the label
“Abformal Recordings”. The album was reissued in 2016.
