At 76 years od, Enrico Rava is one of the most celebrated figures on the European jazz scene and the international circuit, and he's an icon in the world of jazz in Italy. After starting out musically with the piano and trombone, he ended up going with the trumpet after seeing a Miles Davis concert in 1956. In 1962 he started playing with the group Gato Barbieri, and later enlisted in the ranks of Steve Lacy's band. He has combined his own work, most of it released on the prestigious label ECM, with collaborations alongside Michel Petrucciani, Joe Henderson, Cecil Taylor, Paul Motian, Lee Konitz and Carla Bley. He keeps himself in top form as you can see for yourself during their first visit to Jamboree as the head of his new quartet. The concert is part of the Jamboritalia cycle in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute of Barcelona and ItaliaES.
