A mesmerising duets disc between Italy's greatest living jazz player (trumpeter Rava) and hottest young firebrand (piano phenom Bollani), both of whom have sizable ECM followings. Inspired by jazz history, South American music, the Italian song tradition and contemporary composition, but more importantly, simply beautiful music-making. We expect this to get glowing reviews even by ECM standards.
"Rava is a wonderful trumpet player - mellow lyricism, warm tone and gorgeous acoustic sound... Pianist Stefano Bollani says more with half a dozen notes than most others do with several handfuls." -- The Observer (UK)

Thom Jurek said it best in the All Music Guide: This is a deeply conversational and historically rich sound world so poetically explored by Rava and Bollani. "The Third Man is a brilliant collaboration and a beautifully accessible as well as adventurous offering."
then, after listening several times, you can feel the "joy" in some sense. that's the secret behind rava's modality and a perfect duet... it's the joy of discovery, interplay and intensity. (unfortunately, not joy of swinging.)
after listening "retrato em branca y preto" composed by jobim and "birth of a butterfly" composed by rava, listening them again as last tracks, you'll notice making variations on the same theme is a joy of music in and for itself...
I then listened to it again without giving it the 'background music' tag with serious intent. I found the music to be lush and beautiful. This is a great session between two gifted musicians and i hope to discover more of their work and collaboration.
Definitely recommend to check out.
