Enrico Pieranunzi

A superior post-bop pianist influenced by Bill Evans and McCoy Tyner but long possessing his own sound, Enrico Pieranunzi is one of the top jazz pianists living in Italy. He began studying piano when he was five, partly from his father, who was a jazz-loving guitarist. Pieranunzi became a professional when he was 19, playing with trombonist Marcello Rosa's quartet. Since then, in addition to leading his own groups, Pieranunzi has worked with many top players (both Europeans and Americans) including Franco Ambrosetti, Chet Baker, Benny Bailey, Art Farmer, Curtis Fuller, Johnny Griffin, Charlie Haden, Jim Hall, Lee Konitz, Sal Nistico, Enrico Rava, Tony Scott, Kai Winding, and Phil Woods. Pieranunzi, who also teaches at a conservatory, has done studio work and sometimes works as a chamber music soloist. Up through the 1990s he recorded a number of impressive jazz sets as a leader for Enja, Timeless, and especially Soul Note. After the turn of the millennium his CDs have often appeared on the CamJazz label, including recordings -- Play Morricone (2002), Current Conditions and Play Morricone, Vol. 2 (both 2003), Ballads (2006), Live in Japan (2007), and Dream Dance (2009) -- with a trio featuring drummer Joey Baron and bassist Marc Johnson. ~ Scott Yanow

I'm not even Italian and I like his stuff. Better than espresso at 15:00 hrs, it is...

My Old Flame, in a trio setting with Charlie Haden and Paul Motian. It's a lovely recording all the way through but the bass solo is Haden's typically wonderful playing and then the way Pieranunzi follows it is perfect.

I start with my trust in the ECM label, purchasing music because it's on ECM. From there, I am exposed to the great musicians of the world. From internet categories such as 'similar artists' I am then introduced to such wonderful artists such as this one. I have one of the most eclectic collections around thanks to ECM. Beautiful music indeed!
