from the PaNoPTiCoN website:
"PaNoPTiCoN is Domenico Solazzo's most ambitious project.
The idea emerged while he was recording his multi collaborative album "Multiply" in 2006.
PaNoPTiCoN is not a band, so to speak. It's more like a collective of musicians who are open and ready to dive into the most mystical forms of electric jazz improvisation, not unlike the first Weather Report recordings, Herbie Hancock's "Crossings" or Miles Davis' "In A Silent Way".

Though somehow obvious, it is quite a bet to make it happen on stage : no rehearsals are planned, never, and the line-up changes at every performance, which guarantees the spontaneity of the music played which represents quite a challenge for both the audience and the musicians themselves !

In true, PaNoPTiCoN cannot be described as a mere jamming band ; it's the reunion of people who are really willing to elevate themselves through communion in music."

The list of particpating artists is quite impressive. It includes Bart Maris and Michel Delville, just to name two.

Over at you can listen to an enormous number of PaNoPTiCoN concerts. I'm listening to "Cycle Phase Two" right now.
