Tomasz Stańko / Enrico Rava Quintet

Enrico Rava (trumpet), Tomasz Stanko (trumpet), Giovanni Guidi (piano), Reuben Rogers (bass), Gerald Cleaver (drums)

They say that two heads are better than one, which is why we’re glad to welcome two jazz legends to the stage together. Trumpet players Tomasz Stańko and Enrico Rava are among the modern European jazz elite and are working on their very first joint project, together with other European and American musicians. Of course, this isn’t going to be your average jam session or gratuitous trumpet recital. It’s an in-depth exploration of the unique characteristics possessed by each musician. After all, both artists are rooted in traditional jazz, to which they have added their own, unmistakable, open and creative interpretations. Despite their already impressive solo reputations, they are happy enough to allow room for a formidable rhythm section. Fireworks guaranteed!
