rita marcotulliToronto Monday, February 22, 2016 / 7:00-8:15pm AND 9:30-10:45pm Jazz Bistro, 251 Victoria Street, Presented by: Istituto Italiano di Cultura. RITA MARCOTULLI PERFORMS AT JAZZ BISTRO IN TORONT OWell known amongst contemporary jazz audiences at home in Italy and abroad, Rita Marcotulli has performed with musicians such as Kenny Wheeler and Pat Metheny to name a few. See this highly skilled performer play in a style that derives as much from pop and folk, as it does from jazz.
Rita Marcotulli was born in Rome, Italy. Playing piano from early childhood, Marcotulli studied classical music at the Santa Cecilia Conservatory before being drawn to Brazilian music. She also began moving onto the fringes of jazz and established a local reputation at first, before becoming well known among contemporary jazz audiences both at home and abroad. This was largely due to playing with musicians such as Chet Baker, Richard Galliano, Jon Christensen, Palle Danielsson, Peter Erskine, Steve Grossman, Joe Henderson, Hélène La Barrière, Joe Lovano, Tony Oxley, Michel Portal, Enrico Rava, Michel Bénita, Aldo Romano and Kenny Wheeler. In 1987 she was nominated for the Best Young Talent award in the Music Jazz Poll and the following year she was a member of Billy Cobham’s band, touring Europe and the USA and appearing on 1989’s Incoming. She spent some time in Sweden, before returning to Italy in the early 90s. In the late 90s, she played the San Remo festival in duo with Pat Metheny and also appeared as a member of a piano trio, with Paul Bley and John Taylor, at the Olympic Theatre of Vicenza. Among other musicians with whom Marcotulli has worked and sometimes recorded are Sal Nistico, Pino Daniele, Andy Sheppard, Charlie Mariano, Marilyn Mazur, Roberto Gatto, Bob Moses, and she has had a long-term musical relationship with Dewey Redman. Marcotulli has claimed the influence of musicians such as Thelonious Monk, Bill Evans and John Coltrane. (via

Pack-Track’s Innovation of the Month: Easy-open and reclose TUC biscuits

Wrights Biscuits Packaging

Efficient easy-opening and recloseability are two of the best ways to make a pack more consumer friendly, but they are scarcely seen on flexible packs in the biscuit sector, where tear-strips in roll-wraps fail all too often and the most reliable way of maintaining freshness is to store your biscuits in a tin. That’s why Kraft Foods’ LU TUC from Italy has been selected as Pack-Track Innovation of the Month.The familiar flow-wrap format has been modified via laser cutting the film in a wavy pattern to produce a very neat opening as the consumer peels back the self-adhesive film label that is positioned over the top. The dispensing aperture extends the full width of the pack and is large enough to allow the biscuits to be taken out easily. The consumer returns the label to its original position to reclose the pack and both the flow-wrap film and the label withstand repeated use without tearing or loss of quality.“What impressed me about this pack was the practicality of the solution created to add significant functionality to a packet of biscuits,” commented Andrew Streeter, Packaging Innovations Director of Pack-Track. “I like the simplicity of approach, coupled with excellence in execution – often a difficult trick to perform. For the consumer it is a clear beneficial differentiator, the TUC production team have retained the existing pack format and enhanced their skill base, plus the branding team have a stronger brand offering, no doubt IP protected too.” Streeter continues, “This is another example of laser technology with flexibles. The opening and reclosing performs well but the concept starts to degrade a little as the product is consumed and the ‘foundation of biscuits’ that helps the pack keep its shape is reduced. Still, I would say that is an acceptable price to pay for a significant step forward. Using a self-adhesive label adds cost but I am not sure the consumer sees it that way given the benefits it brings. I wonder if this and other laser cut or etched flexible packs are the start of a new format modification, in which case we will be capturing more of these applications on Pack-Track in the New Year,” concludes Andrew Streeter.
