Luca Mannutza Quintet - The Remembering (2017)

Luca Mannutza is among the finest Italian jazz players today, who even released two albums on the legendary Blue Note with the High Five Quintet. “The Remembering” is pure American-rooted jazz, rich in experimentation by a rhythmic point of view, which fully reflects the personality of its composer in its elegance and refinement, never over the top or self-indulgent. Apparently simple and immediate, despite its inherent complexity, it will satisfy much more than just a set of jazz music listeners.
