Pat Metheny Christian McBride Antonio Sanchez: Day Trip / Tokyo Day Trip Live

Originally posted on Jazz You Too:

Choose a musical genre – I pick up Jazz, then an instrument – the guitar, which living guitarrist is immediately suggested? Pat Metheny!

Enrico Pieranunzi: Live At The Village Vanguard

Originally posted on Jazz You Too:

Italian jazz pianist Enrico Pieranunzi, often compared to Bill Evans, recorded this live album at The Village Vanguard – the jazz club located at 178 7th Avenue South in Greenwich Village in New York City, with two more musicians: bassist Marc Johnson and drummer Paul Motian. Indeed it was one of the last recordings of the productive and creative percussionist. August is ending with rain which was persistent along these uncommon summer days – this album goes perfectly with the my state of mind!

Track Listing: I Mean You; Tales From the Unexpected; Pensive Fragments; My Funny Valentine; Fellini’s Waltz; Subconscious Lee; Unless They Love You; La Dolce Vita.

Personnel: Enrico Pieranunzi: piano: Marc Johnson: bass; Paul Motian: drums.
