Biography

At the age of six, wanting to become a singer, Stefano Bollani would accompany himself on the family keyboard. A few years later, he recorded a cassette of himself singing and playing, which he sent to his idol Renato Carosone, along with a letter explaining his dream. Carosone replied advising him to listen to a lot of blues and jazz, and so Bollani did.
His first record was the second ... Read more in Amazon's Stefano Bollani Store

Editorial Reviews

This is a beautiful piano trio album and a chance to hear Stefano Bollani in a different context. Recorded in New York last October, with Manfred Eicher producing, Stone in the Water is the first of Stefano Bollani s ECM recordings to feature the Italian pianist s Danish Trio , a group that already has six years of playing experience behind it. The material on Stone in the Water spans original pieces by Bollani and Bodilsen, tunes by Caetano Veloso and Antonio Carlos Jobim and Poulenc s Improvisation 13 en la mineur it s a wide range of material, unified by the gracefulness of Bollani s touch and the feeling of freedom in the trio playing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful November 4, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I admit, I have a soft spot for piano trios that specialize in ballads. Though I have read that the pianist on this record, Stefano Bollani, can play much more than ballads, the tunes on this album are all slow-mid tempo. The trio's performances of the two Brazilian pieces, one by famous Tropicalia-era singer/composer Caetano Veloso and another by the great Antonio Carlos Jobim, are easily the highlights of the album. The latter, "Brigas Nunca Mais", is definitely my favorite cut... Bollani preserved the purity of the original (as performed by Elis Regina) while imbuing it with a Bill Evans-esque sensibility, practically echoing Bill's performance of "My Foolish Heart" at the Village Vanguard in 1961...

The typical ECM album usually fails to move me -- some artists on the label think that sparse playing automatically makes it enjoyable. But Bollani's trio keeps things harmonically, rhythmically, and melodically interesting (the bassist's solo on track 1 is great) despite the relatively sparse playing. If you like Bill Evans releases like "You Must Believe in Spring" or "Moonbeams", any Eddie Higgins trio album, or just fine jazz ballad playing in general, do yourself a favor and pick up "Stone in the Water".

5.0 out of 5 stars My first attempt at a review on Amazon.... March 24, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I've never felt compelled to write a review of the many CDs I've purchased from Amazon over the years, but felt I had to say something about Stone in the Water. I purchased this disc several weeks ago and have listened to it every day since, sometimes more than once, and I can't recommend it highly enough. The majority of my listening is to classical music, especially piano since piano performance was my major through one year of graduate school before I changed majors. (I'm now a visual artist.) But I'm particularly fond of jazz piano trios: Bill Evans of course, as well as many others, including Keith Jarrett, Tord Gustavsen, Bobo Stenson, Martial Solal, Gordon Beck.... But for reasons I can't fully explain, Stefano Bollani has captured my attention and my heart in a way none of the others has, not even Bill Evans (dare I admit that?). I hope that ECM will continue to encourage him and support him because I think this is a trio that is going to continue to grow together in a remarkable way. Don't know what else to say other than that if this were still the days of the LP, I'd be laying in several copies for fear of wearing out more than one.

Italian pianist Bollani's Danish Trio has been playing together for six years. It shows in their playing, in the telepathy of one member's responses to another member's musical moves. This is high quality piano jazz. The overall tone of the album is so low key that the casual listener may not notice how well these three musicians play together or how high a quality their playing is. The album includes songs by Caetano Veloso and Jobim, and a greatly reworked classical piece by Poulenc, as well as Bollini's tuneful and musically interesting originals. The album was recorded live in New York last October. As with all ECM recordings, the production is high quality.
