Enrico Pieranunzi

Enrico Pieranunzi

Of jazz musicians-deserving-wider-recogni -tion, Italian pianist Enrico Pieranunzi ranks highly. A technically gifted player, a lyrical phraseologist and a warm, probing improvisational voice, Pieranunzi has been making great music across the Atlantic for decades. Along the way, he has played with fine European players, and such notable Yanks as Chet Baker, Art Farmer, Lee Konitz, Marc Johnson, Joey Baron, and Charlie Haden.

In short: Pieranunzi is a sizable force on the jazz piano scene, even if in the margins of the domestic “marketplace.” Remember the name, get lost in the music.
