Empire State Elevators
Carl Pannuzzo, most recently seen as frontman singer for his formidable Quintet, has been composing and improvising since he could reach the piano, finding tardis-like chinks of light within the known and unknown fabric of darkness and humanity. Having met Classical virtuoso oboist Jessica Foot for the recording of his chamber ensemble work '5 Lines', he discovered her again years later, prompting the inception of this current musical adventure, Empire State Elevators.
Carl began writing music for piano and oboe that could be at once melodic and tangential, inviting the expressive voice and improvisational talents of Jess and subsequently adding kaleidoscopic double bassist Holly Downes (The String Contingent).
Joined by two other master musicians, renown guitarist Stephen Magnusson (Katie Noonan, Paul Grabowsky etc) and lyrical drummer Danny McKenna (Mia Dyson, Jeff Lang etc) who also adorn their debut album 'the rise and fall of...' with stunning sonic colours, ‘ESE’ create such a special live experience, deeply affecting audiences and opening new windows of thought.
