Francesco Turrisi Trio - Galway Jazz Festival
Francesco Turrisi - piano Dan Bodwell - bass Seán Carpio - drums
"His passion for the music of centuries gone by is entwined with his personality as a jazz pianist and the result is an arresting and consistently beautiful work." All About Jazz
A brace of European pianists adorn this year's festival. Turin born Francesco Turrisi was formerly harpsichordist with acclaimed baroque ensemble l'Arpeggiata, experience he has put to productive use in his trio, which draws inspiration from early music and Italian folk melodies. The music is imbued with the reflective aesthetic of the great German label ECM and its further evidence of the abundant creativity at work from this open minded and lyrical pianist.
