Read "Grigio" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Album composito, sporto su diversi crinali, quello che ci propone il pianista e compositore torinese Francesco Turrisi, in realtà espatriato ormai da diciassette anni, prima all'Aja e poi a Dublino, dove si è ottimamente inserito in un tessuto in cui la componente jazzistica si mischia felicemente con svariate altre.
