Barock Project - Neo Prog (Italy)
Barock Project biography
The BAROCK PROJECT idea generates from a desire to deliver the finest and perfect structure of classical music (mainly baroque music) with a rock-style and a little bit of jazz harmony, supported by a pop framework with the intention to revamp the appeal of '70s progressive-rock. The project founder, pianist and composer Luca Zabbini, states that his passion for the music of famous keyboardist Keith Emerson (ELP), has fuelled his desire to compose and play a full range of styles, from classical to rock and jazz. In the summer of 2004, Giambattista "GB" Giorgi, a young bassist influenced by rock sounds with big passion for jazz, and drummer Giacomo Calabria joined the band. After a long European tour with "Children of the Damned" and Iron Maiden's singer Paul Di'Anno, Luca Pancaldi joins the band as lead vocals in 2002. In January 2007 the band performs live in Bologna (Italy) with a string quartet. All arrangements are written by Luca Zabbini and they release the performance as a DVD called "Rock in Theater".
In December 2007, published by Musea Records, the first album "Misteriose Voci" makes a great impact with very good reviews and media coverage from all over the world ("Passion Progressive" France ; "Progressive World.net" USA ; "ProgNosis" USA ; "MovimentiProg" Italy ; "Raw and Wild Magazine" Italy ; "Manticornio" Mexico ; "Prog Nose" Belgium ; "PRPM" Brazil ; "ProgWereld" Netherlands .) In the summer 2009 the band releases the second album "Rebus" with the Italian label Mellow Records, again with very good reviews from all over the world. In March 2012, published by French label Musea Records, the band releases the third album "Coffee In Neukölln", with all lyrics in English. In the summer 2014 the band welcomes on board two new members, Eric Ombelli (drums) and Marco Mazzuoccolo (guitar) and begins recording sessions for their 4th and most complex album. Towards the end of 2014 bass player Giambattista Giorgi leaves the project leaving Luca Zabbini to play and re-record the bass lines on the forthcoming album. January 2015, Barock Project sign a management contract with Stars of Italy and immediately after announce their 4th album, Skyline.
