Gianni Basso & Renato Sellani – Body and Soul


From Italy, arguably the country with most exciting jazz scene today, comes a superb duo album of two veteran musicians: the “Italian Balladeur” Gianni Basso on tenor saxophone and 81-years-old Renato Sellani on piano. These amazing musicians have created, lived and embody the history of Italian jazz. Basso has a strong, fat tone and melodic, expressive style. His saxophone playing is gentle and passionate, light and deep, and always rhythmic. Sellani proves to be a perfect match for Basso, showing his beautiful touch and sophisticated sense of harmony in sometimes unexpected ways. This is a beautiful conversation between two masters, and a collection of gorgeously played standards and ballads. Recommended!
