ENRICO RAVA QUINTET
‘Contemporary Italian jazz began with Enrico Rava’, says the International Herald Tribune. Winner of the Danish Jazzpar Award in 2002, Enrico Rava is a disciple of Miles Davis who has embraced post-bop and free jazz styles over many years, becoming an original and creative musician in his own right. Fiery and lyrical in turn, Enrico Rava plays sumptuous ballads of great warmth and beauty. The sparse, bittersweet quality of his writing on Easy Living creates an intense and reflective mood where every note counts. His free-flowing trumpet solos have a perfect foil in Guianluca Petrella on trombone and Andrea Pozza on piano. "among the best jazz albums of the last decade" Jazzwise Enrico's recent cd for ECM, "Easy Living", was included in Jazzwise Magazine's Top 10 Albums of the Year 2004. It was also the only jazz cd to be included in Observer Music Monthly's top 20 albums of 2004.
