“Sofa” is the first record by Urban Quartet, an album in which we can hear the contemporary version of the jazz tradition. A super guest was chosen for their first album: Max Ionata.

Consisting of Gianluca Robustelli on guitar, Giuseppe Sacchi on piano, Vincenzo Quirico on double bass and Federico Balestra on drums, Urban Quartet is a dynamic ensemble already in the spotlight at prestigious venues such as the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome, the JazzAp Festival in Ascoli, B-Jazz International in Ghent, Belgium, and the Umbria Jazz Festival, winning the audience jury prize at the Umbria Jazz Contest 2022.

One of the giants of Italian jazz, Max Ionata, contributed his poetics to the release of the album “Sofà.”

Released by Jazz Collection, a label born within the Saint Louis College Of Music, dedicated to all shades of jazz, from bop to avant-garde, mainstream to gypsy jazz, big band to samba jazz, “Sofà” was recorded by Andrea Iannone, mixed and mastered by Luca Bulgarelli.
