Tommaso/Rava Quartet

If evidence of the vitality and virtuosity of European jazz were still needed, La Dolce Vita could be exhibit number one. Superb production (by bassist/composer Tommaso) wedded to lyrical, majestic playing from veteran trumpeter Enrico Rava, and the beautiful piano of Stefano Bollani, make this visit to some of Italian cinema's best-known themes (The Postman, L'Avventura, Fellini's La Dolce Vita) an instant classic.

Artists :

Enrico Rava ( Trumpet, Flugelhorn )
Tommaso/Rava Quartet ( Band )
Giovanni Tommaso ( Double Bass )
Roberto Gatto ( Drums )
Stefano Bollani ( Piano )
Tommaso/Rava Quartet

"When I was asked to record this album I didn't hesitate, I immediately called trumpeter Enrico Rava, (this experience also might have been predestined!). My gratitude also goes to Stefano Bollani and Roberto Gatto, whom I consider the best musicians for this job." (Giovanni Tommaso)
