his debut, Enrico Zanisi has proved to have the makings of a rocketing
star, to whom the label of enfant prodige of Italian jazz was soon to
become a tight fit. That’s why this piano solo album by Enrico Zanisi,
released on CAM JAZZ, seems well-timed for an ideal start to a new era
in the career of this young pianist.
Following three trio albums and several side projects, Piano Tales
comes to crown a journey during which the Roman pianist has explored
the boundaries of his music but leaving its distinguishing natural grace
This recording reveals a brand new Zanisi, more full-fledged but, above
all, aware of his potential as songwriter and player. This work consists
of eleven tracks, mostly less than four minutes long, a purported
collection of musical feelings, more than an actual concept album. It
also features more complex pieces with a highly designed improvisational
approach. But the prevailing element in a mood accommodating fullness
and emptiness, music and silence, is Zanisi’s airy piano-playing, both
inexpressible and sharp.
In young players like him one seldom finds such a clear awareness of
one’s own means as well as an already distinct musical personality like
his. Though, Zanisi has both of them, unmistakably.
