A revamped lineup of one of the best jazz/rock bands to emerge from Italy perform in front of a clearly excited audience in Japan. Happily this includes main composer and original leader Gigi Venegoni, who wasn’t with the band when I saw them a decade ago!

“One of the most important historical bands of Italian progressive and jazz-rock returns: Arti & Mestieri. A unique, original, intense and delicate sound, in which jazz, progressive rock and Mediterranean sounds come together to create a language of great expressiveness and communication. Arti & Mestieri revive the glories of the past, demonstrating how the quality and class of their music have remained intact.
In 2019 the project of the "Essentia" concert was born. The band's first challenge focused on their jazz musical essence to find a balance between the Mediterranean-inspired melody, the always sought-after harmony and the intense and original rhythm. The quintet includes two components of the original formation, Furio Chirico and Gigi Venegoni, together with Piero Mortara,Lautaro Acosta and Roberto Puggioni.
"Live In Japan", a live show by Arts & Crafts on May 18th 2019 on their fourth sensational return to the land of the Rising Sun, at the prestigious Jazz Rock Legends!
The band was particularly appreciated by the ambitious audience and considered "one of the best historical musical realities currently active in the world".”
