About the album

Paolo Fresu - trumpet, flugelhornFabio | Zeppetella - electric and acoustic guitar | Jean-Jacques Avenel - bass |

Pier Paolo Pozzi – drums

Greetings From is the group’s first recording on A-Records. Featuring all original compositions by P.P.Pozzi, this quartet represents the best of Italian jazz. This recording has plenty of what it takes. Fresu’s musical articulation is as fluent as one can imagine, making the line happen without ever seeming indulgent or tricky and the rhythm section truly shines here as well: the groove is ferocious when called for, and as subtly shaded as one might ask when the occasion demands.

Over the past ten years, he has performed with countless other Italian jazz artists including Antonello Salis, Crystal White, Joy Garrison, Fabio Zeppetella, Ares Tavolazzi, Massimo Urbani, Tony Scott…and many others. In 1993, he left Italy to live in Paris where he fronted several bands including the P.P.Pozzi Trio and Quartet Gimmy Gourley Trio and Michel Graillier Trio. In May 1998, replacing Lewis Nash, he performed with the Tommy Flanagan Trio for a week at the All Jazz Club in Paris with Peter Washington (bass). It is the complicity between the musicians near him all these years that has permitted Pier to conclude this CD project.

The band of the country and major international prizes, the Sardinian countryside and disks, the discovery of jazz and the many collaborations, the love for the little things and Paris. There were few people really able to put together such a primer of elements and turn it into an incredibly fast growth style. Paolo Fresu he succeeded just in a country like Italy where - for too long - the jazz culture was known as Shakespeare or the paintings of Matisse, where Louis Armstrong was little more than a freak of insane showcases Sanremo and Miles Davis discovered "black" and very good after years of maximum creativity. The "magic" is immense naturalness of a man who, like few others, managed to carry the deeper meaning of his magical land precisely in the most precious and freedom of the arts. At this point in his long and successful career, no longer need to enumerate recordings, prizes and various experiences that imposed at the international level and that they systematically and ecumenically love his music: in the sound of his trumpet is the sap that gave prestige to the new wave of European jazz, the depth of a thought not only music, generosity wants it "naturally" in the right place at the right time but, above all, the enormous and inexhaustible passion that sustains forever. This Paul is - as usual - whirling, worthy omnivorous artist and creative that everyone recognizes in him. Today (apart from a surprising literary side which resulted in the publication of some interesting editorial work) made ​​of its historic quintet is about to round the mark of 3 decades of full cooperation and mutual respect, but is also one of the quartet " Devil ", which rescues fully about the successes of the celebrated" Angel "who imposed European Paolo attention some five years ago. They grow then the important contemporary realities: the duet with Uri Caine, collaboration with Carla Bley and Steve Swallow and the lucky meeting with Ralph Towner that was the bridge at the entrance of Paul's name in the entourage of the celebrated and noble label ECM, which then published the beautiful work Mystical Mediterranean with Daniele Di Bonaventura and the choir A Filetta course, I am only a few of these. Its present more current sees active, more foreign things in perspective, in a trio with Richard Galliano and Swedish pianist Jan Lundgren ("Mare Nostrum") and several new adventures with new names entourage important contemporary jazz such as Omar Sosa, Gianluca Petrella, and - again - with Manu Katché, Eivind Aarset, Dave Douglas. Interesting are the projects with some great names of the literary and theatrical Italian (Ascanio Celestini, Lella Costa, Stefano Benni, Milena Vukotic) over, finally, a new series of small but important partnerships with the music "intelligent" fringes popular Italian. Music for the cinema and "special projects" as its unique "just" play that has paralyzed 3,000 spectators at the Auditorium of Rome or an enchanted theater Metastasio in Prato close the circle with the little big and crazy adventure that led him to celebrate in 2011 its 50th anniversary with 50 concerts, in 50 consecutive days with 50 formations and different projects of the day in 50 masterpieces landscape of his native Sardinia. It would certainly be a mistake to forget the winks to the world "Classic "that could soon surprises with ad hoc jobs when they may be involved string quartets looking ahead and great heroes Avantgarde music or, finally, the beautiful new work of" promotion "cha Paul is carrying out against many Young Lions entourage contemporary jazz through the possibilities offered their thanks to his new label Tǔk Music built specifically to look forward to.
