Trovesi compositions such as “Villanella” and “Minor Dance” present impressionistic canvasses of sound, chock full of sweet lyricism, peppery unison lines and playful choruses as Coscia exhibits his worldly skills as a shrewd accompanist and purveyor of sweeping rhythmic chord progressions. The clarinetist’s fiery ringing tone and emotive style of execution via piercing high notes, vibrato and inventive phraseology comes to the forefront on John Lewis’ classic, “Django” as Trovesi also interweaves whimsical Dixieland grooves with stately choruses along with Coscia’s fleet-fingered lines. Essentially, In Cerca Di Cibo intimates pizzazz, charm and good-natured fun, as these pros wouldn’t have it any other way. A magnificent exposition indeed!
