Trupa va prezenta „Glide”, cel de-al doilea album al European Collective, lansat în ianuarie 2019 la prestigioasa casă de discuri italiană specializată în Jazz, UR Records. Un proiect extrem de contemporan, cu ecouri Progressive Rock și sonorități inovatoare, însă în același timp adânc înrădăcinate în tradiția jazz-istică. „Glide” este onorat de prezența extraordinarei vocaliste Ana Cristina Leonte, invitat special în două piese.
Trupa a luat naștere din ideea și pasiunea lui Paolo Profeti, compozitor și saxofonist de origine italiană care locuiește deja de 6 ani la București. Aici a creat European Collective, care a debutat în 2015 cu primul album, „Waiting for Bucharest”, lansat la casa românească de discuri Fiver House Records.

European Collective a participat la festivaluri importante precum: TM Jazz Festival 2017 (main stage), TIFF Festival 2017, Transilvania Jazz Festival 2016, preview Green Hours Jazz Festival 2017 & Green Hours Jazz Festival 2015, Arcub - Artist in Residence 2016. De menționat și turneele din Germania, Norvegia, Finlanda, Turcia și Italia.

„Wonderful writing Wonderful playing”
Lucian Ban, pianist și compozitor român

„Profeti’s compositions in this new album „Glide”, deeply rooted in the jazz tradition, are at the same time absolutely contemporary, original in their themes and sound. One may re-live some Progressive Rock echoes of King Crimson, or electro Tango vibes in Tango para Zoe, whose final melody brings back the spasms and flavors of the milongas, like many Tangos Nuevos of bands such as Bajofondo or Narcotango. Le chiavi di Via Arquà recalls certain atmospheres of John Taylor or Tigran Hamasyan. However, despite the variety and abundance of inspirational sources, the album is absolutely coherent as a whole: a piece of work taking the audience on a rich and unexpected exploration.”
Luca Pissavini, basist italian și membru UR Records

„Paolo vibrates with his echoing alto in the web-cosmos, but very much lives for today with an intensity nourished by the deep roots of the past, roots he knows so well. Eight pieces, at times coarse, suave, complex or simply straight which capture the tonal richness of an electronic spatial adventure but at the same time the solid perfection of someone who knows where it all comes from. A melody that cuts across electronic spasms, solid groove, and refined harmonies, taking on the form perhaps of a lunar tango, and so impossible encounters become real music, to live, to ponder, and then reinterpret again, letting yourself be carried away by the fluent vortex of “Glide.”
Tino Tracanna (Glide’s Liner Notes), saxofonist italian și șeful catedrei de Jazz de la Conservatorul din Milano

„I recommend listening to the album "Glide", by Paolo Profeti European Collective. A visionary, "Blade Runner" disc, one of the few contemporary albums that I’ve heard recently that does not seem like a bluff, on the contrary, where magic and authentic inspiration is felt. A disc that "slides" intriguingly as it leaves a „trace”, like a fluorescent web-blob 2.0. Congratulations to Paolo, to his collaborators (a special mention to the wonderful guest Ana Cristina Leonte) and to all the friends at UR Records.”
Claudio Ottaviano, basist italian
