After more than 30 concerts and many excellent reviews about their first trio albums Tales From The Unexpected and ""European Trio"", the Italian pianist Enrico Pieranunzi and the Dutch double bassist Jasper Somsen recorded their third trio album with the Catalan drummer Jorge Rossy: Common View. The new album is an equal and refreshing collaboration featuring these three masters both as performing artists and composers. Three totally different lives, characters, and backgrounds collide as one Common View.

Enrico Pieranunzi has long been one of the best-known and appreciated personalities on the European jazz scene. Pianist, composer, arranger, he has recorded more than seventy albums under his own name, ranging from solo piano to trio, and from duet to quintet. He has played in concert and in the studio with Chet Baker, Lee Konitz, Marc Johnson, Joey Baron, Paul Motian, Chris Potter, and Charlie Haden, performing at all the most important international festivals, from Montreal to Copenhagen, from Berlin to Madrid.

Pieranunzi's formative years embraced both classical and jazz piano, and the influence of Debussy is readily apparent in the lush romanticism at the heart of his music. Emerging in the early '70s, Pieranunzi's lyrical approach quickly brought him to the forefront of the European scene, and in 1984 he formed a trio with Marc Johnson and Joey baron, the first of several outstanding groups with American musicians. In 1989, 2003 and 2008 he was voted Musician of the Year in the Italian magazine Musica Jazz critic's poll and he was 1997 recipient of the Django d'Or Award for best European Jazz Musician. In the recent years Pieranunzi performed and recorded frequently in the United States.

REVIEW:

Cultivating language, omitting the unnecessary, letting silence have its say, all this gives the other person room for meaningful nuances. Two congenial partners stand equally at Pieranunzi's side. On the one hand, there is the Dutch bassist Jasper Somsen with his preference for poetically floating tones, and on the other hand the almost inconspicuously acting drummer Jorge Rossy, who forms filigree rhythmic figures.
