Marcello Benetti Shuffled Quartet
The quartet has been together since 2011 and has been able to create an unique sound around Marcello's compositions. Happy music, easy to listen but quite challenging to play, with a good balance between the story composed and the ability of improvise!

Marcello Benetti - drums/compositions
Helen Gillet - cello
Jeff Albert - trombone
Rex Gregory - clarinet/flute

"The joyful bounce and full melodies of Marcello's New Orleans home turf is evident in the way every tune is light on its feet and begging to be whistled as you go about your day. The music is also full of quirky eccentricities, where song structures deviate from expected shapes in slight, but dramatic ways. It’s the kind of thing that you’d expect from a musician whose roots extend back to Italy and its modern jazz scene. But it’s those shared characteristics of an amped up excitement and a wry sense of humor that allow the drummer to harness them into a singular form of expression."
