ITALY: Matteo Bortone Trio-ClarOscuro(CAM Jazz 2018)

Enrico Zanisi piano
Matteo Bortone double bass, prepared double bass, glockenspiel
Stefano Tamborrino drums

"The great delight of Matteo Bortone’s luminous but thoughtful ClarOscuro is that there is never any doubt that we are hearing a group at work… Here’s a musician with a mountain-solid sense of time who is able – perhaps for that reason – to let himself off the leash and play “free”… so it’s a mark of a rather special album that ClarOscuro stands out so strongly from the crowd.” (Brian Morton)

Worldwide release: March 30, 2018
