Enrico Pieranunzi / Marc Johnson / Joey Baron: Dream Dance

Read "Dream Dance" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


Italian pianist Enrico Pieranunzi's music is often said to incorporate European classicism, suggesting seriousness and, perhaps, a staid erudition to those who haven't heard him.Pieranunzi has fronted a trio with bassist Marc Johnson and drummer Joey Baron since 1984. While not a working band like Keith Jarrett's enduring Standards Trio, Pieranunzi's recordings and tours ...

Enrico Pieranunzi / Marc Johnson / Joey Baron: Dream Dance

Read "Dream Dance" reviewed by John Kelman


Focusing on all-original material, pianist Enrico Pieranunzi's Dream Dance proves that when there's the right chemistry, a group can retain it throughout the years, even if reconvening only occasionally. While not a regular working unit like Keith Jarrett's enduring Standards Trio with bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Jack DeJohnette, Pieranunzi's trio with bassist Marc Johnson and ...

Enrico Pieranunzi / Marc Johnson / Joey Baron: Live in Japan

Read "Live in Japan" reviewed by John Kelman


By no means a newcomer to the scene, Italian pianist Enrico Pieranunzi's star has only begun to rise significantly in North America in the past couple of years, with albums including the outstanding FelliniJazz (Cam Jazz, 2004) and Plays Morricone (Cam Jazz, 2005) finally more readily available.

Enrico Pieranunzi / Marc Johnson / Joey Baron: Live in Japan

Read "Live in Japan" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


I suspect that at least a gazillion electrons have been sacrificed to the obvious influence that Bill Evans had on Italian pianist Enrico Pieranunzi...and I am going to offer up a few million more. Pieranunzi is well-studied in the Evans musical method, even establishing a temporal connection to Evans through bassist Marc Johnson, who performed with ...

Enrico Pieranunzi / Marc Johnson / Joey Baron: Ballads

Read "Ballads" reviewed by Samuel Chell


Pity bassist Marc Johnson. He was an integral part of Bill Evans' trio during the pianist's final year, an extraordinary valedictory culminating in two monumental sets, Last Waltz and Consecration (Fantasy, 1980/2002), only to be orphaned upon the pianist's sudden death at the completion of those remarkable recordings. There would be no one to take the ...

Enrico Pieranunzi / Marc Johnson / Joey Baron: Ballads

Read "Ballads" reviewed by John Kelman


The simplest stories often reveal the greatest depth. So, too, can the simplest songs yield richer meaning. Italian pianist Enrico Pieranunzi makes that abundantly clear with Ballads, an album so gentle it can almost pass by unnoticed. But pay attention and what may appear to be a collection of easy-on-the-ears songs prove to be much more. ...

Enrico Pieranunzi / Marc Johnson / Joey Baron: Play Morricone

Read "Play Morricone" reviewed by John Kelman


Sometimes the most unfortunate circumstances can yield surprisingly positive results. Bassist Marc Johnson and drummer Joey Baron were already in Italy in 1984 for the start of a tour with pianist Kenny Drew when Drew's wife became suddenly ill. With Drew returning home to Denmark, Johnson and Baron were left with few options. When pianist Enrico ...

Enrico Pieranunzi / Marc Johnson / Joey Baron: Play Morricone

Read "Play Morricone" reviewed by Chris May


Some composers' work is so uniquely and blissfully melodic that a musician need do no more than pick out the top line to induce happiness in the listener. Like Lalique glassware or Ming porcelain, the tune is a thing of beauty complete in itself, capable of standing a lengthy gaze or multiple repetition without any danger ...
