Portrait In Black And White by Francesco Cafiso Sicilian Quartet
Portrait In Black And White by Francesco Cafiso Sicilian Quartet at Eastwind Import
<<Back to Cafiso, Francesco Listings


This item is not available at this time.

Artist/Band:Francesco Cafiso Sicilian Quartet
Name:Portrait In Black And White
Cat No.:VHCD-1009
Performed by:Francesco Cafiso (alto sax)
Dino Rubino (trumpet)
Giovanni Mazzarino (piano)
Nello Toscano (bass)
Release Date:06/18/2008
Description:Francesco Cafiso is a young alto sax "phenomenon" who was born on the island of Sicily, Italy, on May 24, 1989. At age 19 (as of this writing), he has already performed and/or recorded with greatest musicians: Hank Jones, Cedar Walton, Mulgrew Miller, Ronnie Matthews, Jimmy Cobb, Ben Riley, Ray Drummond, Lewis Nash, Joe Lovano, George Mraz, Enrico Rava, and Wynton Marsalis, to name a few.

Cafiso was only 16 when he recorded his debut CD for Venus Records of Japan. New York Lullaby became an instant hit, and Seven Steps to Heaven followed shortly thereafter.

Portrait In Black And White is a long-awaited third release from this talented young man. This time, Cafiso chose an interesting format of drum-less quartet, entirely consisting of fellow Sicilian musicians. They have a great musical rapport with one another, and the young trumpeter Dino Rubino stands out with his beautiful tone and creative solos.

The selections lean heavily towards the jazz composer's songbook, including compositions -- some quite recent -- by Dizzy Gillespie, Ahmad Jamal, Charlie Haden, Steve Swallow and Tom Harrell. Cafiso is as brilliant as ever, and takes more risks in his solos than in his previous albums. This is an exciting new release from an exciting, evolving artist. Recommended!

The vinyl LP version of this album is available here.

Produced by Tetsuo Hara. Recorded at The House Recording Studio in Rome on January 4 & 5, 2007. Engineered by Simone Cianmarughi. Mixed by Venus Hyper Magnum Sound: Shuji Kitamura and Tetsuo Hara.
