Al Catasso (I)
Al Catasso founded the Band with the precise intention to create a "POWER TRIO"
(guitar/bass + drums) that goes back to the sound energy and to creative power of the sixty`s and seventy`srock-blues bands, such Mountain, Rory Gallagher, Taste,
Led Zeppelin, BBA, and Allman Brothers Band.
The Black Jack renew the classic sound of these historical bands through the composition of unpublished
pieces,performed in a modern and innovative manner, not hiding the influensces of jazz,blues and modern rock artists, such as Govt`Mule, Tom Principato, Living Colours,
Muddy Waters,Miles Davis,Wes Montgomery,Mr. Big and Buddy Guy.
Some covers belong to the Black Jack`s repertory, which have been used re-performed to create whirling jams and medleys, reading over, in a personal manner,the history of the more classic and hard rock-blues.
Everything is under the supervision of the Band leader Al Catasso who can boast innumerable live experiences
such as the "Montreux Jazz Festival", "Pistoia Blues Festival" (Italy`s Blues Mecca),etc.
