Berlin-based Banquet of Consequences is the new sextet led by double bassist Antonio Borghini. In addition to the valuable lesson of Charles Mingus, clear references to Dutch, Italian and South African jazz traditions are mixed in the group. The group’s eponymous debut album oscillates between completely improvised works – a series of numbered “Dialogues” – and compositions that swing wildly between chaos and tenderness.


Banquet of Consequences di Berlino è il nuovo sestetto guidato dal contrabbassista Antonio Borghini. Nel gruppo si mescolano, oltre alla preziosa lezione di Charles Mingus, chiari riferimenti alle tradizioni jazzistiche olandesi, italiane e sudafricane. L’omonimo album di debutto del gruppo oscilla tra opere completamente improvvisate – una serie di “Dialoghi” numerati – e composizioni che oscillano selvaggiamente tra il caos e la tenerezza.
