Lineup and Details for Tommaso Starace Quartet plays Michel Pettrucciani on Sat 14th July 2012
Tommaso Starace Quartet: 'Celebrating the music of Michel Petrucciani'.
Saxophonist Tommaso Starace and his quartet comprising Neil Angilley on piano, Lairence Cottle on bass, and Chris Higginbottom on drums perform a concert entirely dedicated to the great French pianist Michel Petrucciani. Petrucciani was very much respected by the American jazz community and around the world for his extraordinary technique, elegance of execution, and his charismatic energy conveyed through his many memorable compositions.
In the concert, the quartet will perform some of the most popular tunes from his extensive repertoire - Petrucciani led his band over many years, producing a total of 32 albums.
The Quartet has recently performed a sold out concert at the Blue Note in Milan. They have visited many clubs and festivals across the Uk including Pizza Express Dean Street, Royal National Theatre, Italian Cultural Institute, Brecon jazz Festival, Oxford Jazz festival, Lichfield Jazz Festival, Biella Jazz Festival, Open Brianza Jazz Festival, and many others.
Tommaso has collaborated with many great jazz musicians which include Dave Liebman, Norma Winston, Kenny Wheeler, Liam Noble, Laurence Cottle, Tino Tracanna, Paolo Fresu, and award winning Oscar composer Dario Marianelli.
