After the runaway success of his delightful “In cerca di cibo”, the big reedman from Bergamo returns with all-Italian octet in a programme that celebrates the spirit of early jazz in a thoroughly contemporary context. The ghosts of Louis Armstrong and W. C. Handy smile down benevolently as Trovesi and his men roar through a programme that cross-references the spirit of New Orleans with Italian popular song and European classical music.
