  • Description

    'Lullabies from an Unknown Time' brings together two musicians renowned for their virtuosic, classically-influenced technique, performing here a set of music full of restraint, poignancy and sensitivity.

    For at least 4,000 years, lullabies have existed in one form or another as a way to soothe, cajole or (a long time ago) even threaten a child to sleep. 'Lullabies from an Unknown Time' takes this concept of thoughtful, reflective songs from across the ages and transforms them into a sparkling collection of new music, a project that reunites pianist Lorenzo DeFinti with long-time friend and labelmate, trumpeter Fabrizio Bosso.

    There's no Twinkle, Twinkle here though; Italian pianist Lorenzo De Finti's through-composed originals mix with wisps of Stravinsky, a Venezuelan folk song, and Chick Corea's Crystal Silence.

    Fabrizio Bosso has been a mainstay on the international jazz scene since graduating from the Turin conservatory of music as a 15-year old prodigy. He's performed an incredible range of projects - from big band and straight-ahead jazz to pop, bossa nova and avant garde - not to mention his own releases on Universal Records' legendary Blue Note imprint. The overarching theme of his career, though, is an openness to new ideas.

    Lorenzo De Finti (perhaps unsurprisingly) started out as a classical musician & composer, before diving into the world of jazz in the 1990s; first at America's prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston and then out on the road with artists diverse as The Harlem Gospel Choir, Ziggy Marley, Paolo Costa and long-standing collaborator, saxophonist Eric Marienthal.

    Personnel: Lorenzo DeFinti (piano), Fabrizio Bosso (trumpet).
