WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Regarded as one of the most important composers on the European scene, this prolific jazz trumpeter is known for his broad musical language. Enrico Rava refers to jazz and swing configuration as much as he evokes Italian folk songs and his classical training. His first instrument, before coming to New York, was trombone, but after seeing Miles Davis and Lester Young in concert in 1956 in the city of Turin, he switched to trumpet, developing what writers now call a "burnished" tone.
