Stefano Battaglia Trio: In The Morning

Read "In The Morning" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Italian pianist Stefano Battaglia and his trio present a program with a special thematic focus: all of the music was written by American composer Alec Wilder.

After three ECM recordings that finally brought greater international attention to the eclectic breadth of Stefano Battaglia's nearly two-decade career, the Italian pianist turns to a format steeped in jazz orthodoxy for The River of Anyder .

Stefano Battaglia Trio: The River of Anyder

Read "The River of Anyder" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Il lungo viaggio musicale di Battaglia, nel suo nuovo capitolo per l'etichetta di Manfred Eicher, s'ispira ai luoghi fantasticati che scrittori, filosofi o mistici hanno evocato nel corso dei secoli. I titoli dei brani spaziano dalla città-fortezza descritta da Tolkien ne Il Signore degli Anelli (Minas Tirith) ad Anagoor di Dino Buzzati, dalla Bensalem di Francis Bacon alle pure ...
