Album Description

Italian master pianist Enrico Pieranunzi has made more than fifty recordings so far in a career that stretches back to the 1970s and has taken in collaborations with such major figures as Chet Baker, Charlie Haden, Paul Motian and Jim Hall. Few of his recordings, many of them now on CAM JAZZ, has such presence as The Extra Something, a live recording made at the fabled Village Vanguard club in New York City. Working with a first-class band, Pieranunzi combines core jazz values with a sense of structure and order that comes from classical music, but all of it animated by a strong sense of freedom. The Extra Something is not just another release by a prolific artist. It marks a definite stage in his remarkable unfolding career, and with it, elevates Pieranunzi to the ranks of the jazz greats. Under the supervision of music producer Ermanno Basso, The Extra Something was recorded live in January 2016 at The Village Vanguard, NYC, by James Farber, mixed in September 2016 by James Farber at Sear Sound in NYC, and mastered by Danilo Rossi.
