Alboran Trio is an Italian Jazz band. Paolo Paliaga who has founded the group in 2004 is a Jazz pianist. He began his career with traditional North- American Jazz. Then he is drawn to a more European sound- contemporary style. At the end of the ’80 he met and played with different musicians from different parts of the world and different musical traditions. While researching and composing, he moved gradually away from the rhythms and beat of swing to explore a new expression of rhythm and melody based on the interaction of trio of acoustic instruments.
