Pericopes +1 is a new addition to the project initiated by pianist Alessandro Sgobbio and saxophonist Emiliano Vernizzi. In 2012, they met American drummer Nick Wight and expanded the project to a trio, called “Pericopes+1”. Two years after releasing their debut trio album “These Human Beings”, Pericopes+1 return with an inventive sophomore release, “Legacy”. Since 2015, “These Human Beings” earned Pericopes+1 international attention and opened doors to new stages through five tours of EU, UK and USA. “Legacy” finds Pericopes+1 embracing a fresh musical palette inspired by alternative and popular culture, paying respect to the iconoclastic artists who bravely followed their creative vision.
