Nico Morelli Trio
The Italian pianist Nico Morelli has already played with the likes of Marc Johnson, Paolo Fresu, Enrico Rava, André Ceccarelli and Steve Lacy. One of the most passionate jazz pianists of his generation, he plays in the Italian music tradition that emphasizes the role of harmony and melody. His compositions feature delicate, sensual melodies that linger in the mind long after you’ve heard them. Nico Morelli is an artist of many talents who immerses us in a world of classic lyricism and original, virtuoso jazz improvisation. His class, elegance, sophistication, modernity and lightness of touch all contribute to making his new album a must-listen, somewhere between jazz and world music. A true Italian talent!
