New all-star quintet session features trumpeter Enrico Rava, the greatest Italian jazz musician, and his prot 'g', pianist Stefano Bollani, together with three leading American jazzmen: master drummer Paul Motian, bassist Larry Grenadier, and saxophonist Mark Turner. The CD is both a transatlantic project and a kind of 'homecoming'. Rava found his musical direction while living in New York in the late 60s/early 70s. Since then an increasingly 'Italian' lyricism has also made itself felt in his playing. Rava's soulful trumpet is strongly contrasted with the lean, analytical playing of Mark Turner. Bollani's playful harmonic imagination shapes bridges between them. Larry Grenadier is "present and focused in every moment" as Rava says, and Paul Motian is as idiosyncratically creative as ever.

E' autunno, momento magico di silenzi, di foglie dorate e di funghi e il commissario Bartolomeo Rebaudengo passeggia nei boschi di Ceva. Ma la tranquillità dura poco, subito funestata da un delitto atroce, quasi un rituale che rimanda a un fatto di cronaca nera vecchio di dieci anni. Lo scenario è una bella villa sulla collina di Alassio, tra palme, eucalipti e profumo di mareggiate invernali. Nel frattempo gli uomini del commissariato indagano anche su una vicenda poco chiara che si svolge all’interno di una sfarzosa galleria d’arte e antiquariato appena inaugurata…

It was only after Michael Jackson’s death that Italian trumpeter Enrico Rava gradually became aware that he had for many years been ignoring, in his words, “one of the great protagonists of 20th century music and dance. A total artist. A perfectionist. A genius. I felt the need to delve more deeply into Michael’s world. There was only one way to do that: play his songs.” Thus this live album, recorded at the Rome Auditorium with the Parco della Musica Jazz Lab. Enrico’s trumpet is at its most extroverted here, vaulting above the spirited arrangements by Mauro Ottolini. Michael Jackson’s protean pop songs have never been heard quite like this. Rava is currently playing European festivals with this programme.

Il lungo viale al centro della città è deserto. Solo un uomo anziano cammina sotto il sole, con una torcia elettrica accesa nonostante la luce estiva. E Spartaco Guidi. Qualche mese dopo, il suo corpo viene ritrovato in un terreno di campagna. L'autopsia viene affidata al medico legale Ardelia Spinola. Dopo tanti anni di esperienza, sa che il suo compito è solamente quello di circoscrivere l'ora della morte, di stabilirne cause e dinamiche. Ma non è facile zittire l'anima investigatrice che c'è in lei. Anche se, in realtà, avrebbe ben altro a cui pensare…

Enrico Rava (born 20 August 1939 in Trieste, Italy), is a prolific jazz trumpeter and arguably one of the best known Italian jazz musicians. He originally played trombone, changing to the trumpet after hearing Miles Davis. His first commercial work was as a member of Gato Barbieri's Italian quintet in the mid-1960s; in the late 1960s he was a member of Steve Lacy's group. In 1967 Rava moved to New York City, and one month later became a member of the group Gas Mask, a group that had one LP on Tonsil Records in 1970. He has played with artists such as Carla Bley, Jeanne Lee, Paul Motian, Lee Konitz and Roswell Rudd. Chiefly an exponent of bebop jazz, Enrico Rava has also played successfully in avant-garde settings. His style may partly recall Kenny Wheeler's in its spareness and lightness of tone, albeit Rava's is harmonically simpler.

Stalwart Italian jazz trumpeter Enrico Rava introduces his new working quartet for this Wild Dance, joined by longtime playing partner trombonist Gianluca Petrella. Petrella contributed to Rava's three ECM post-millennium quintet albums Tribe (2011), The Words & The Days (2005) and Easy Living (2003). The basic quartet features a guitar rather than piano, recalling Rava's 1970s ECM recordings with John Abercrombie, The Pilgrim And The Stars (1975) and The Plot (1976). Guitarist Francesco Diodati is more of a texturalist in the Bill Frisell mode, contributing to the group sound in different ways from tune to tune. "I often prefer to hear a guitarist playing behind a soloist—not least because guitarists can't play chords with 10 fingers," Rava jokes.

Italian trumpeters Enrico Rava and Paolo Fresu pay tribute to the late Chet Baker – but take it from us, the set's way more than just a simple tribute album! Some of the tunes might be familiar ones from Chet's book, but the performances here are often distdemoinctly un-Baker-like – taken at times, tempos, and tones that really push the envelope – and which make the album more of a nstration of the instrumental strengths of Rava and Fresu than a return to Chet's earlier sound.
