Pinner Jazz: Rossano Sportiello Trio – May 9, 2015

pinner_jazzSaturday, 9 May 2015 – ROSSANO SPORTIELLO TRIO

The fabulous Italian-American swing pianist Rossano Sportiello joins us immediately after appearing at the 2015 Norwich Jazz Party for this his first Pinner concert. Rossano was born in 1974 in Vigevano, Italy, and graduated in classical piano aged only 16. Having transferred his allegiance to jazz, he became known as an exponent of the stride style and was compared to the late Ralph Sutton and Dave McKenna but that understates his playing range. He can, as they say, do it all. Now resident in New York City, he travels internationally, leads his own trio and records regularly with the top players of the day. He says, “I want to see people smiling and having fun.” With our old friends, bassist Dave Green and drummer Steve Brown as his co-collaborators, pleasure is ensured!
