Pre-concert Conversation, 2 pm
“Fresh Sounds from Europe,” with Art of Jazz Series Producer Bruce Eaton
Concert, 3 pm

An international jazz icon and undoubtedly the most internationally acclaimed Italian jazzman in history, Enrico Rava produces a haunting burnished tone backed by his “amazing conception of melody and music” (Pat Metheny). The Guardian calls him “one of Miles Davis’s most imaginative inheritors.” His recent ECM recordings have been hailed as “among the best jazz albums of the last decade” (Jazzwise). This rare North American appearance will include Rava’s Italian quintet, featuring the remarkable young trombonist Gianluca Petrella. (
