Enrico Pieranunzi: New Spring - Live At The Village Vanguard

Read "New Spring - Live At The Village Vanguard" reviewed by Luigi Sforza

Il fascino, discreto o no che sia, rappresenta una qualità che si svela non appena ci si accosta ad una persona o un progetto artistico che -per eleganza, portamento, affabilità, gentilezza, intensità, bellezza, stile, amabilità e altri nobili appellativi -, cattura la nostra completa attenzione. Questo magnetismo può essere così forte che, anche se a volte ...
