5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond beautiful November 5, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This spectacular disc illustrates the power of jazz to enrich and transform almost any musical context or genre, here Italian film music, specifically, the (mainly Nina Rota) songs that graced some of renowned director Federico Feline's greatest movies. Deeply rooted in the Italian canzone tradition, this music bears, perhaps, a similar relation to Neapolitan culture as Tin Pan Alley bears to American culture. Moreover, it readily lends itself to a similar process of unfolding and expansion through jazz improvisation, although its antecedents are quite dissimilar from those of its American counterpart.

Deeply linked to the French chanson and the Spanish cancion, the Italian canzone has roots both in local folk musics and arias from light opera, as well as a sprinkling of Southern European jazz and pop music. Typically, canzoni have gorgeous melodies, the tune always taking prominence over the lyrics. Often, this music is specifically composed to evoke well-known aspects either of Italian art, architecture, culture, or geography. Thus it has its own particular flavor, one consciously designed and intended to bring to mind the life and natural beauty of this remarkable country. To the listener used to its American jazz counterparts, it may sound "too pretty"; I freely admit that was my initial and continued response. It took about five or six listenings for me to totally track with the sensibility, but once I did, I was absolutely on board.

The challenge to jazz artists recording an album of canzoni is to retain the inherent beauty of the song form while still imbuing it with sufficient rigor, imagination, and insight to prevent a slip into sentimentalism. Leader and pianist Enrico Pieranunzi manages this task with unfailing taste, wit, and ingenuity.

5.0 out of 5 stars As Good As It Gets! May 10, 2012
By jassman
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Too pretty?" "Could have been better?" "For fans of Fellini?" "I don't like Nino Rota?" Okay, let's pick these off one by one. (1.) Too pretty? Too beautiful perhaps for delicate ears? Nah, you can handle it! Next! (2.) Could have been better? Okay, once again I going to emphasize the lineup here. Kenny Wheeler, Chris Potter, Enrico Pieranunzi, Charlie Haden and Paul Motian. There is NO way this group could sound bad if they tried. ALL play at the top of their level. Paul Motian played like Paul Motian. Let's move on. (3) For Fans of Fellini? Well, kind of, but probably more accurate to say that if a jazz take on Nino Rota's themes for various Fellini movies sounds intriguing to you, go for it! (4) I don't like Nino Rota. Actually, I just threw that one in for a cheap laugh, no one really said it in any of the reviews. I think. This release, along with Tommaso/Rava Quartet's "La dolce Vita" and Kenny Wheeler's "What Now" represent a triple threat of the best in modern jazz from CamJazz. 8 1/2 stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous June 4, 2014

I made an excellent selection after hearing only one tune. This artist is very similar to Bill Evans. I highly recommend this artist.
