Progressive, psychedelic, funky and much more! GLINCOLTI is an instrumental ensemble founded in 2007 that combines passion and alchemy. The founders are drummer Roberts Colbertaldo, guitarist Alessandro Tedesco and bassist Andrea Zardo. Then guitarist Federico 'Jek' Jacono joined the band and gave it a more sophisticated sound.
The early tracks are melodic instrumental pieces, full of expressiveness and capable of brilliantly replacing vocals. Between spring and summer 2009 Glincolti recorded their debut album Visti & Imprevisti, released by Go Down Records.
At the end of 2010 a fifth member joined the group. His name is Alessandro Brunetta, a versatile musician skilled on several instruments. He juggles saxophone, clarinet, harmonica and keyboards. A lover of rhythm'n'blues and funk-rock, Brunetta gives the band a warmer and more harmonious touch. In 2011 Federico 'Jek' Jacono quit the project, replaced by guitarist Alberto Piccolo, a very talented blues musician. He knows how to give an even more melodic and authentic colour to the sound.
At the beginning of 2012 Glincolti recorded their sophomore self-titled album at Go Down Studio in Savignano sul Rubicone, with Enrico Gabrielli (Calibro 35, Mariposa, Afterhours) as special guest.
Between 2013 and 2014 Alessandro Tedesco and Alessandro Brunetta left the band to follow new paths. However the project is still alive and kicking and a new guitarist is ready to join the crew, Alex Donanzan. Roberts' catchy rhythm, Andrea's incisive riffs and Alberto's furious and hypnotic guitar composed Ad Occhi Aperti in 2016.
In March 2019 Go Down Records pressed a deluxe vinyl edition of the 2016 album, called Terzo Occhio - Ad Occhi Aperti.
