Clockwork Groove is the name of the quintet founded by the bassist and composer Davide Giovanni Pometti in 2012 with saxophonists Alessia Serina Pinto and Ferdinando DíUrso, guitarist Marco Pometti and drummer Luigi Perticone. "Waiting for Injection" is their first work as a group.
The music recorded in this album by Clockwork Groove contains several elements derived from many kinds of music: it is possible to find jazz-rock, fusion, ingredients taken from the A.A.C.M.ís music (especially from the Art Ensemble of Chicagoís compositions) and from the style of Frank Zappa together with a pinch of western art music and other contemporary delicacies.
Todayís mainstream jazz is often just a regurgitation of bebop or hardbop; the intent of this band is to propose something different to shake the collective perception as a psychoactive drug or an electroshock. "Waiting for Injection" is a fantasy medicine created by Clockwork Groove to cure contemporary jazz and to give it a new youth.
All the pieces contained in this album are composed and arranged by Davide Giovanni Pometti, except for Ginestra, written and arranged by Ferdinando DíUrso.
