World Music Series / Italy / DR (Italian Doc Remix)
Founded by Italian guitarist/composer Marco Cappelli and Italian-American percussionist Jim Pugliese, IDR (Italian Doc Remix) has carved out a unique musical niche. The ensemble fuses jazz improvisation, rock, and Italian folkloric/ early music sources to excavate the cultural memory of generations of Italian immigrants and explore the musical space where traditions blur and cross-contaminate, memories fade and distort, and new post-immigration sounds are born. IDR’s newest album, Pandemonium, takes their project to the next level with the addition of a half-dozen of Southern Italy’s finest musicians to the group’s usual lineup.
IDR is vocalist Francesco Pellegrino, guitarist composer Marco Cappelli, bassist and clarinetist Doug Wieselman, trombonist Roberto Schiano, contrabassist Ken Filiano, and drummer Jim Pugliese.
