Reciprocal Uncles with John Hughes
RECIPROCAL UNCLES Gianni Mimmo : soprano sax Gianni Lenoci : piano Cristiano Calcagnile : drums + John Hughes : double bass Contemporary avant-jazz/experimental music background and extended instrumental skills give a rich nuance palette, a multi-faceted idea of music and vivid listening experience. How sparkling the relationship is between musicians that share intentions, derivations, and approaches. They all view sound as plastic matter to sculpt. Gianni Mimmo Gianni plays soprano sax and composes in the fields of jazz and experimental music since the 70’s in his own original projects with highly disparate groups working on relationship between music-text and music-image.

His work mainly focuses in relationships among distances, essentiality, sincerity and his productions have been excellently reviewed by international magazines and webzines.
