Enrico Pieranunzi, Fellini Jazz. The Barbican show was a programme of alternative takes on Rota, from straight jazz to improv and noise. This album, though it handles much of the same poignant material (Il Bidone, Amarcord, La Dolce Vita, La Strada), is the work of a single bespoke jazz quintet, led by the experienced Pieranunzi (he has worked with Chet Baker, Kenny Clarke and Johnny Griffin in his time) and featuring Britain's Kenny Wheeler and America's Chris Potter on trumpet and. saxes. Charlie Haden and Paul Motian make up the astute bass and drums partnership.
Motian and bassistCharlie Haden. Motian, who played with Bill Evans, keeps that open, loose rhythm swirlingbehind Pieranunzis Evans-like clean vision. Haden and the pianist close the record with asentimental duo of a Pieranunzi bitter/sweet original that could be the end piece to a "lovefound/love lost" movie. The band keeps the music in the forefront here. They play the circus theme version of La DolceVita with a straight-face, Pieranunzi ringing in the track by comping around Potters sopranoflight.
Personnel: Kenny Wheeler - Trumpet, Flugelhorn; Chris Potter - Tenor Saxophone, Soprano Saxophone; Enrico Pieranunzi - Piano; Charlie Haden - Bass; Paul Motian - Drums. The elegance that is Fellini Jazz serves as a tribute to both the great director and this assembly of musicians. Italian pianist Enrico Pieranunzi continues to make make dream recordings that are so much more than all-star get togethers. This release follows two stellar sessions, Plays Morricone and Current Conditions (both on CAM Jazz), with bassist Marc Johnson and drummer Joey Baron.
