Maurizio Giammarco: saxophone, piano, keyboards/Flavio Boltro: trumpet/Umberto Fiorentino: guitars/Furio Di Castri: electric bass, double bass/Roberto Gatto: drums

Following a meeting with trumpeter Flavio Boltro, saxophonist and composer Maurizio Giammarco founded the quintet Lingomania in 1984. The lineup consisted of Stefano Sabatini on keyboards, Roberto Gatto on drums and Furio Di Castri on double bass.

The quintet was immediately well received by the public and critics, winning “best group” in the “Top Jazz” referendum held by Musica Jazz magazine in 1984 and 1985. The difficulty, however, of finding a label to record a good product at low cost will cause the release of the first album “Reverberations” to be delayed by two years.

In the record work, pianist Stefano Sabatini is replaced by guitarist Umberto Fiorentino.
