ERNEST PLATINI was formed in 2010 by myself in order to play my compositions with
a small acoustic ensemble.
Concerts are also preferably without sound-system in order to maintain a natural balance and
friendly proximity with the listeners.

The music of ERNEST PLATINI, a kind of optmistic jazz, is trying to be as contrasted as possible
while maintaining a sound unity.
The compositions explore eclectic territories but always with coherence.
A special place is reserved for improvisation in both the interpretation and the fine solos.

ERNEST PLATINI's music is mainly inspired by:
Guinga, The Raymond Scott Quintet, Hermeto Pascoal, Charles Mingus, Kurt Weill, Root 70, Thelonius Monk,
 Itibere Familia Orchestra, Pixinguinha, Jacob do Bandolim, Tiny Bell trio, Bill Frisell (80'-90'), André Minvielle, Duke Ellington,
popular musics from Brasil, Albania, Bulgaria, etc..
