"Jazz has countless possible combinations. Through Pianeti Affini (trans. “Kindred Planets”) Giovanni Falzone and CAM JAZZ tried out an unusual quintet consisting of trumpet, accordion, trombone, bass and drums and, last but not least, electronics. Throughout more than an hour of music, these six instruments just kept pulling apart and then coming together again in an endless variety of amazing expressions of sound, timbre, rhythm and harmony that are forceful or vibrant and syncopated or hallucinogenic, poignant, distressing or graceful...  Listening to Giovanni Falzone on trumpet, Filippo Vignato on trombone, Fausto Beccalossi on accordion, Giulio Corini on bass and Alessandro Rossi on drums makes us discover five Kindred Planets. Their similarity, so intensely sought and found in those thousand expressions of sound, timbre, rhythm and harmony, is nothing but Jazz "   (Daniela Floris)
