- Classical fans, jazz fans: who will be first in the queue? Maybe they will arrive together abreast. Ninety years since Gershwin’s An American In Paris, this is rather lovely and yes a “classical” take by jazz pianist Enrico Pieranunzi who knows how to inject the timeless selections artfully arranged with just the right kind of feeling and nuance. Along with his violinist brother Gabriele and clarinettist Gabriele Mirabassi these are spirited and vivacious excursions. The trio strip their selections down to their essence in a superbly produced album just released recorded in Italy during the late winter of 2017.
