'O Padreterno nun e` mercante ca pava o' sabbato 

Neues Kabarett is delighted to present the Marco Cappelli Acoustic Trio giving an encore performance of its project,
'O Padreterno nun e` mercante ca pava o' sabbato, which they premiered at the Brecht Forum back in May.
'O Padreterno nun e` mercante ca pava o' sabbato, Neaopolitan dialect for “God is not a merchant who pays on the due date”, is a brand new suite of compositions inspired by Italian writer Maurizio de Giovanni and his mysteries. These stories involve the poetic figure of Commissario Ricciardi, a Naples policeman, during the time of the fascist Mussolini regime in 1930s Italy.
Tonight's performance is the occasion to welcome the recent English translation of Maurizio de Giovanni's mysteries: more about it on the following link
The Marco Cappelli Acoustic Trio explores the "chamber music" sound of Cappelli's classical prepared guitar in combination with Ken's powerful acoustic bass playing and Satoshi's very special set of percussion. The trio was formed back in 2009 by three of most active improvisers in the New York avant-garde music scene and gained a reputation through many appearances in New York's venues as well through a 2011 European Tour. Please check Marco Cappelli Acoustic Trio live on  the following links:
Cappelli’s original music for the trio is inspired by mystery literature. Their first CD, Les Nuages en France, was released by Mode Records, the music being based on the characters of French mystery writer Fred Vargas:

Marco Cappelli has led an extraordinary artistic path, first becoming familiar with rigorous written music, then with free improvisation languages. The diversity of Marco’s performances is due to a fascinating array of collaborations (Anthony Coleman, Michel Godard, Butch Morris, Franco Piersanti, Jim Pugliese, Enrico Rava, Marc Ribot, Elliott Sharp and more) as well in jazz and avant-garde music festivals both as a soloist and in ensemble settings. Among the founders of the acclaimed Italian contemporary music group "Ensemble Dissonanzen", Cappelli currently lives in New York, where he is involved with the contemporary and avant-garde music scene. He is Guitar Professor at Conservatory “Vincenzo Bellini” in Palermo and Music Associate at Columbia University in New York.
Active since the early '80s, bassist Ken Filiano has since contributed to dozens of albums, most of them pertaining to creative jazz -- from post-bop to free improvisation. An educator, the bassist has taught at the University of New Mexico (Albuquerque), New York State University (Buffalo), UCLA, and Rutgers University. In 2002 Filiano finally released his first solo album, titled Subvenire. The November 2010 release Dreams from a Clown Car marked the recording debut of Filiano’s Quantum Entanglements quartet, featuring saxophonists Tony Malaby and Michaël Attias and drummer Michael T.A. Thompson.
Drummer, percussionist, and arranger Satoshi Takeishi is a native of Mito, Japan. He studied music at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. While at Berklee he developed an interest in the music of South America and went to live in Colombia following the invitation of a friend. He continues to explore multi-cultural, electronics and improvisational music with local musicians and composers in New York.
