Villa For Forest

Contemporary Jazz Lab

The beginnings of this project date back to 2016 when the bass player Peter Smrdel (Slo) and the drummer Ignas Kasikauskas (Lt) met in Rome while attending the Roma Summer Jazz Workshop. They started jamming and were soon joined by the piano player from Bari (It) Francesco Schepisi. In February and April 2017 Ignas organized a tour in Lithuania and Latvia where they got together with the saxophone player from Vilnius Danielius Pancerovas. The styles of music that bond them together are traditional and contemporary jazz. They play their own original compositions and jazz standards in their own arrangements.
