By The Way
Internationally accomplished musicians Davide Mantovani (bass) and Ivano Borgazzi (piano) created “By The Way” as an outlet to write and perform original material inspired by Jazz, Funk, Latin and Brazilian sounds. After a successful debut and album launch at the Hideaway and a string of highly acclaimed performances the quartet (completed by Michael Rosen on sax and Enzo Zirilli on drums) returns to the club for another electrifying night.
Davide’s interest in music started at four with the piano. He then progressed on to the guitar, and from there to the electric and acoustic bass. His father was one of the founders of the Ferrara Jazz Club (now a major Italian venue). That put Davide in touch with a vast Jazz discography, and he also met some of its greatest composers and interpreters. Since his arrival in London in 1991, Davide has built up a consistent amount of experience on both live and studio scenes, playing with some illustrious Jazz, World and Pop artists around: Lisa Stansfield, Tony Allen (Fela Kuti), Baaba Maal, Seckou Keita, Zoe Rahman, Jim Mullen, Andy Sheppard, Jason Rebello, Natacha Atlas, Mulatu Astatke, Nana Vasconcelos, Alex Wilson, Kuljit Bahmra, Justin Adams, Cheick Lô, Baseckou Kouyate, Cheo Feliciano, Herman Olivera, Aster Aweke, Jean Toussant (Jazz Messengers), Antonio Forcione and many others.
