Italian group Domenico Sanna Trio are 'Too Marvelous for Words' on debut album
(Published: March 08, 2011)
(Rome, Italy) Written by Robert Sutton. The Domenico Sanna Trio declares that they are Too Marvelous for Words on their debut album. By the closing track "Midnight Sun," they erase any doubts to the validity of that claim.
The first half of "Midnight Sun" finds the band balancing light and darkness with Giorgio Rosciglione's shadowy bass lines offering an ominous counterpoint to Domenico Sanna's beaming piano, but then everything stops to a grinding halt; it's as if the group was swallowed by an eclipse. A second or two later, the band reappears with renewed force as Rosciglione's bass throbs with breathtaking urgency as Sanna's piano playing electrifies the air and Marco Valeri pounds away on his drums at breakneck speed. Marvelous indeed.
The Domenico Sanna Trio is the first jazz act signed to Tosky Records in Rome, Italy. On Too Marvelous for Words, the group dazzles with their sharply executed piano jazz. In "The Last Train," the locomotive beat of Valeri's drumming hitches onto Sanna's snappy piano and Rosciglione's driving bass for a wonderfully dizzying ride. Tosky Records' CEO Giorgio Lovecchio explains who the band is in this interview.
For those unfamiliar with the Domenico Sanna Trio, can you tell us more about them?
They are very good musicians and they play often here in Rome, especially the veteran Giorgio Rosciglione. They're famous here, and they have many gigs in jazz clubs.
How did they get signed to Tosky Records?
I met Domenico Sanna many years ago, during our music study; he was a colleague of mine. I listened to this trio three to four times in some jazz clubs before deciding to do the production.
How did they get together?
Every band member has four to five side projects himself but they started playing for this project a couple of years ago.
