Piero Bassini discography Pianist Piero Bassini is equal parts McCoy Tyner and Andrew Hill in influence, but thoroughly his own man in the keys. With his trio comprised of bassist Luca Garlaschelli and virtuoso drummer Ettore Fioravanti, Bassini runs through his large book of colors, timbres, and curiously seamless harmonics. Featuring seven pieces, all Bassini compositions, Portrait With In is a stellar exploration of the reaches of the keyboardist's love of angular arpeggios, striated architectures of intervallic whimsy, and modal, open-toned note clusters that provide drones in the low register as a keynote for Garlaschelli and skittering skeins of chords and middle register triplets for accent in all the right places. The standouts are the two bookends of the album, "Explorations 1" and "Explorations 2," where the hill influence of flying over the keyboard in search of the right tonal equanimity meets the Tyner exegesis of large open chords that hover around the minor fifth and seventh edges for a murky kind of darkness. But there is also "Triangular Visions," where Bassini turns his crisscrossing harmonics in on themselves by building triads in the middle register and shifting them into 16th-note triplet runs against flatted ninths at the low ends of the register, producing a buzzing but bell-like drone for the rhythm section to -- barely -- hold on to. There isn't a dull note on this stellar collection that ...

Piero Bassini songs Somehow, the Italians seem to produce more quality jazz musicians per capita than any other country. Much of the music has been recorded on the Splasc(h) label, which records Italian jazz of all genres. Pierre Bassini plays mostly original pieces in a highly romantic vein, backed by bassist Luca Garaschelli and drummer Roberto Gatto. The music is sweet and fair, relaxed and comforting. As David Ielmini ...

Piero Bassini CD discography Italian pianist Piero Bassini is a giant in his country as one of the instrument's most lyrical and inventive improvisers. His technique, lush, deft, and profound, combines elements of Oscar Peterson's technical literacy, Errol Garner's lyricism, and the harmonic invention of Bill Evans. On this program of originals and standards, Bassini is, with the exception of two tracks, showcased entirely solo. While it's true that the ...

Piero Bassini albums A sophisticated musical giant from Italy, pianist Piero Bassini seems made for the solo recital. His nimble fingers walk across the keyboard with deliberate care, with a sense that each note is carefully handpicked. This is his fourth solo album dating back to his debut in 1976 (Open Form Contrast on Red Records). Here, Bassini performs nine original compositions, plus two popular Monk tunes ("Round About ...

Piero Bassini CD discography During 1983-86 altoist Bobby Watson recorded fairly regularly for the Italian Red label. On this album he is joined by an obscure but talented Italian rhythm section (pianist Piero Bassini, bassist Attilio Zanchi and drummer Giampiero Prina) called the Open Form Trio. Actually the highpoint of the date is Watson's unaccompanied solo on "If Bird Could See Me Now." Other memorable selections on the well-rounded set ...
