Barber Mouse is the Italian trio comprised of double bass player and composer Stefano Risso, drummer Mattia Barbieri and pianist Fabrizio Rat. They have released a new album called Heretic Monk which is out now via Auand Records. According to the press release, Barber Mouse’s second studio album is filled with many of the ideas that marked the previous one: experimentation, research on timber, acoustic instruments adapted and played in a way that makes them sound like electronic instruments instead. While the first album kept away from jazz, the new one dives into it, with a tribute to a jazz giant such as Thelonious Monk, to his compositions and the standards he reinvented.
