The "Blue Moka" quartet – with Alberto Gurrisi (Hammond), Emiliano Vernizzi (sax), Michele Bianchi (guitar) and Michele Morari (drums), featuring special guest Fabrizio Bosso – released their debut album, also titled "Blue Moka", on 19 January 2018 (produced by Jando Music / Via Veneto Jazz). The album contains 8 original songs that combine elements of blues, funk and R&B, with a New York Nu-jazz sound. In addition to those tracks   are two revised standards of Wayne Shorter (Footprints), Michel Petrucciani (Brazilian Like) as well as a tribute to the late artist Lucio Dalla (Futura) who was very dear to the band. The quartet’s name was inspired by their musical approach of blending shades that meld the American jazz tradition with experimental strokes of chromatic textures, resulting in a new shade of blue: blue moka. A new sound shade in jazz that strives to search for language, tradition and groove, leading to a chasm of freshness and vitality where all members are closely connected, gliding lightheartedly in the richness of the energetic sound that distinguishes them. The idea of forming "Blue Moka" originated in 2009 when the group of friends sharing an overwhelming passion for jazz undertook an exploratory path that allowed them to capture a unique musical dialogue. With the arrival of saxophonist Emiliano Vernizzi, a plethora of sound possibilities opened up, underscoring the need for a repertoire of original songs.

"Blue Moka" bristles with the energy of the band’s unique approach and fluid virtuosity. It boasts a dynamic sound-palette that draws on influences from modern jazz, R&B and funk, while exhibiting a deep respect for the soulful 1960s tradition of the Hammond. Among the numerous artists that have influenced and formed the artistic careers of the quartet’s members are: Jimmy Smith, Art Blakey, Wynton Marsalis, Brian Blade, Pat Metheny, up to Robert Glasper, Roy Hargrove, Larry Goldings.
