2019 release. Enrico Rava, the doyen of Italian jazz, joined forces with Joe Lovano, masterful US tenorist of Sicilian heritage, for a brief tour in November 2018. On this album, recorded live at Rome s Auditorium Parco della Musica, the two masters lead a spirited quintet that includes lyrical pianist Giovanni Guidi, dynamic drummer Gerald Cleaver and virtuosic bassist Dezron Douglas (making his ECM debut here). Well-loved tunes by the two bandleaders form the core of the program, including Enrico's intricate Interiors and Secrets and Joe's vigorous Texas blues Forth Worth, which recalls the energies of Ornette Coleman and Dewey Redman. The album concludes with an extended and powerful medley that roams across the history of modern jazz as it gathers together Lovano's "Drum Song", John Coltrane's "Spiritual" and the standard tune "Over The Rainbow".
