CD review: Enrico Pieranunzi – Common View 2020: Video, CD cover

After more than 30 concerts and many excellent reviews about their first trio albums “Tales From The Unexpected” and “European Trio”, the Italian pianist Enrico Pieranunzi and the Dutch double bassist Jasper Somsen recorded their third trio album with the Catalan drummer Jorge Rossy: “Common View”.

Enrico Pieranunzi has long been one of the best-known and appreciated personalities on the European jazz scene. Pianist, composer, arranger, he has recorded more than seventy CDs under his own name, ranging from solo piano to trio, and from duet to quintet. He has played in concert and in the studio with Chet Baker, Lee Konitz, Marc Johnson, Joey Baron, Paul Motian, Chris Potter and Charlie Haden, performing at all the most important international festivals, from Montreal to Copenhagen, from Berlin to Madrid. Pieranunzi’s formative years embraced both classical and jazz piano, and the influence of Debussy is readily apparent in the lush romanticism at the heart of his music. Jasper performs worldwide, is a renowned studio producer, can be heard on 40 albums and was a frequently invited guest teacher at the conservatories in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Utrecht and Arnhem. Jorge Rossy is internationally recognized as one of the most influential drummers of his generation. His sideman work includes over 80 recordings with renowned jazz musicians Brad Mehldau, Ethan Iverson, Kevin Hays, Albert Sanz, Mark Turner, Chris Cheek, Seamus Blake, Joshua Redman, Kurt Rosenwinkel and Steve Swallow, among many others. Jorge has also toured with some jazz greats including Charlie Haden, Wayne Shorter, Lee Konitz, Carla Bley, and Joe Lovano.
