“Gabriela Martina’s Swiss roots offer an incredible range as she practically yodels her way through “Narcissus” en route to her mostly originals program on No White Shoes (Self Release; 55:42 ★★★★). Her delivery is a blend of jazz with pop improvisation, and her creative, invested covers of Wayne Shorter’s “Witch Hunt” (stunningly sung as overdubbed a cappella) and Dizzy Gillespie’s “A Night In Tunisia” (a flat-out rocker featuring guitarist Jussi Reijonen) uproot convention.”
– DOWNBEAT, John Ephland

Meridian 71 is an eclectic and international ensemble of Boston-based musicians, led by drummer and composer Giuseppe Paradiso.
The ensemble has been active since 2012, releasing that same year the first album "Otherness Collection", featuring all original compositions by G. Paradiso.
The original music performed by Meridian 71 is characterized by a very distinctive and unique voice, as a result of an extensive research into various musical genres and styles, traditions and cultures, with influences that range from Jazz and American music to European, African and Middle Eastern traditions.
"Music that talks to the listener, rich of several and different cultural elements that Giuseppe and his magnificent band blend wonderfully together with sweetness and energy. Encounter and fusion of melodies, harmonies and rhythms that evoke arcane atmospheres, intense sentiments and distant landscapes, but strongly present and real. Music that makes you travel beyond the boundaries of imagination to offer you swirls of deep emotions."
— Marcello Pellitteri
Drummer, Educator
Professor at Berklee College of Music
