BJC was birthed by Francesco Lomagistro’s (drummer/percussionist) idea to put together all the experiences that come from his passion for African American music, the ‘groove’, and the synergy between rhythm and melody. Ettore Carucci (piano) is the co-leader and indispensable partner as well as the helm in this voyage called ‘The Way I Like’, BJC’s first album. The voyage started many years ago in the center of Taranto on a street called Via Berardi where, there, the two met in an apartment using it as a rehearsal studio.
After many different experiences as ‘sidemen’ in pop, jazz, classical and other types of music, Francesco and Ettore decided to ‘give life’ to this project; three other musicians belong to the bandand are Vincenzo Presta sax, Andrea Sabatino trumpet and Camillo Pace double bass.
With their 3 albums, The Way I Like, Do It and Anyway, they win all the world, Japan ahead, as nu European jazz band…
