"Trovesi has become one of European jazz's most important musical voices and I can't think of many who would even consider attempting something of this scope. This one will grow on me." - Duncan Heining, Jazzwise

"This is an extremely stimulating recording, one of the most interesting of the year so far - full of unexpected twists and turns, juxtapositions of jazz style, texture and voicing and, not least, emotional subtleties and contrasts. This is achieved partly by the palette of voicings that Trovesi brings to his music and partly - and more importantly - through the creativity he brings to bear on them. It means that, at each musical junction, the direction next travelled will be a surprise - the sine qua non of jazz. ... This is music that effortlessly generates images in the imagination and every instrument contributes to the success and variety of these performances." - Chris Sheridan, Jazz Review

Press release from the label:
After the runaway success of his delightful "In cerca di cibo", the big reedman from Bergamo returns with all-Italian octet in a programme that celebrates the spirit of early jazz in a thoroughly contemporary context. The ghosts of Louis Armstrong and W.C. Handy smile down benevolently as Trovesi and his men roar through a programme that cross-references the spirit of New Orleans with Italian popular song and European classical music.

Please note!
Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
