Enrico Rava

Enrico Rava, born in Trieste in 1939, is undoubtedly the most internationally acknowledged Italian jazzman. In forty years of his career as trumpet player, and composer, he has produced more than ninety recordings, tweny-five of which as a leader. Being a great admirer of Miles Davis and Chet Baker, his career started at an early age, when he played in clubs in Turin. In 1962, he meets {{Gato Barbieri = 3627}} with whom, two years later, he records the soundtrack for Montaldo's film "Una bella grinta". In those years he meets Don Cherry, Mal Waldron and Steve Lacy, with whom he plays free jazz in a quartet alternating between London and Buenos Aires (it is in Argentina in 1966 that the quartet records the album "The Forest and the Zoo"). In 1967 Rava is in New York, where he is introduced into the free avant-garde, among which are {{Roswell Rudd = 3958}}, Marion Brown, Rashied Ali, Cecil Taylor, Charlie Haden, Marvin Peterson etc. After an italian parenthesis, during which he plays with various musicians including Franco D'Andrea and where he records with {{Lee Konitz = 8463}} in Rome and with Manfred Schoof in Bremen, he returns to New York in 1969, where he lives for eight years. At first he plays mostly with Rudd, Bill Dixon and Carla Bley's Jazz Composer's Orchestra, under whose direction he records "Escalator Over the Hill". Beginning in 1972, when he records his first album as a leader, "Il giro del giorno in 80 mondi", Rava directs quartets (in New York clubs and on tours in Europe and Argentina), nearly always in pianoless groups. The playings and recordings follow one another, in a precious and uninterrupted flow, beside acknowledged italian, european and american musicians such as Franco D'Andrea, Enrico Pieranunzi, Marcello Melis, Massimo Urbani, Paolo Fresu, Pietro Tonolo, Stefano Bollani, Roberto Gatto, John Abercrombie, Roswell Rudd, Miroslav Vitous, Richard Galliano, J.F

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
