"Latino Jazz Club" - Milan, May 2014 This is the third CD with Latin Jazz Ensemble, another project that I am proud of. I am very pleased and amazed at having been able to continue the series and to have received the appreciation for the previous CD's from many listeners around the world. Latin Jazz Ensemble is not simply a band but by now a small community of musicians, professionals, friends that have helped me over the years. First to create, then to keep together, this long lasting project with live gigs all over Italy and abroad in different forms, from duo to sextet. I had the pleasure of involving fine musicians from the Milan scene for these CD recordings and for live gigs, happy to contribute to this project with professionalism and enthusiasm. It might be, they tell me, because of my contagious enthusiasm, passion and energy (that some call "positive folly") that I put into everything in life and even more into music, my lifetime passion, and in the last few years, my profession. This time I imagined and envision the listener, even the non-jazz aficionado, sipping a good drink with friends, in an imaginary "Latino Jazz Club" accompanied by these beautiful tunes, selected among the many I love and that encompass my music taste, in a few of them also played Latin-American Percussions, another one of my original long time passions. Tunes like "Obsesion", "Tres Palabras", "Claudia" are part of Cuban love song history, "Ceora" (one of the most beautiful songs ever written, to my opinion), "Recado Bossa Nova" and our version of "My foolish heart" are definitely into the bossa nova stream, "Linda Chicana" and "This is Always" are my personal latin jazz homage to Cal Tjader, RIP, who had performed these tunes and has been described as "the man who revolutionized Latin Jazz". One of my favourite artists ever. "Someday my prince will come" (an exception from the latin mood of the CD) and the closing song of the CD "Beautiful Love" bring positive thoughts and express my undisputed love for life that I have inside of me. I must again thank my long time "partners in crime" Angelo Bifezzi, Diego Ruvidotti and Paolo Traino, the "core" of Latin Jazz Ensemble, great musicians and friends with whom we worked together for several years. As in the previous CD's, new friends joined the "Latin Jazz Ensemble" family; I have the honor to have on this CD some more great musicians, both exquisite people: one is Adalberto Ferrari, one of the most complete and refined players I ran into ever, a real "maestro" of one of my favorite instruments, the clarinet. The second is a master of a relatively seldom used instrument in Jazz, but very interesting in the latin atmosphere, the accordion, another fantastic player, Nadio Marenco. With both of these players we added new beautiful sounds to Latin Jazz Ensemble. Last, but not least, I wanted to have for a second time as a guest in the CD, Gino Carravieri, an experienced, versatile drummer, great professional and by now also a friend with whom I have fun playing in "latin" contexts. Have a drink, relax and unwind into my "Latino Jazz Club"; I hope to have achieved one more time what I wanted: simple Jazz and Latin music, well performed, intense, honest, joyful and peaceful at the same time, a bit like the person I feel I am. Love and Music Roby Perissin.
