17th Sep: Jazz On Wednesdays brings you the magic of world jazz, this week featuring the Antonio Mazzei Trio and their recent album Casa. Listen to Jazz Sketches with Robert Vale at noon, and Planet Jazz with Xavier Bichon at 7pm.
This is pianist Antonio Mazzei’s second release as leader & follows his 2018 debut solo album, Reveries. Mazzei’s musical roots go to initially his native city Caracas, Venezuela, and then a decade of performance and study in NYC. He is now based in Barcelona where Casa was recently recorded.
The album comprises eight Mazzei originals expressive of favourite places and people in his life, with a focus on the Trio’s collective and unified improvisation.
