Via Toledo Jazz Quartet” with The ALL STAR drummer Bruno Castellucci

Via Toledo is an ancient street and one of the most important shopping thoroughfare in the city of Naples, Italy.

Many poets compare Via Toledo to the American Broadway and the French writer Stendhal describe the spirit of this street like this “here we are in the beautiful Via Toledo, the happiest street on earth!”.

These four musicians, Bruno Castellucci (Belgian from Italian Parents), Paolo Loveri, Angelo Gregorio (Italians from the region of Naples) and Fil Caporali (Brazilian) got together with the same spirit of Via Toledo in Naples. Happiness and passion for music, for jazz.

Musical Repertoire
This project wants to present a unique kind of jazz musical performance to the live stage bringing together original compositions of the young upcoming artist Angelo Gregorio and less known jazz standards, with the experienced swing of two of the most famous Belgian artists like Bruno Castellucci on drums and Paolo Loveri on guitar. Fil Caporali, talented double bass player, winner of the Toots Thielemans Jazz Awards 2016, has been chosen from Bruno Castellucci to enrich the project and open it to South-American rhythm.

The ALL STAR drummer Castellucci’s name circulates not only on the entire European jazz scene as a reliable and professional drummer for live concerts but he is also a very sought-after studio musician. From the outset, his motto has always been the same: listen carefully to others and make no difference between jazz and other musical styles. Over the years, it has led him to play amongst others alongside André Brasseur, Alex Scorier, Art Farmer, Philip Catherine, Joe Zawinul, Chet Baker and Jaco Pastorius. In 1974, he becomes Toots Thielemans regular drummer, a role which he also fulfils for three decades in German trombonist Peter Herbolzheimer’s big band. He also played with Count Basie Orchestra and Bob Mintzer Big Band.

Paolo Loveri was born in Italy in 1965 where he started his career by taking private lessons with Pietro Condorelli and then moved to Belgium to pursue his studies at the Brussels Music Conservatory with Paolo Radoni. After completing his studies, he decided to settle down in Belgium where he had the opportunity to play with some very prominent jazz musicians: Fabrice Alleman, Paolo Radoni, Bruno Castellucci, and Guy Cabay.
