Some call it modal jazz, others contemporary or contaminated jazz...I just call it excellent music.
The first time I ever laid my hands on Italian jazz was way back in 1993 when I purchased a copy of a Paolo Achenza trio vinyl EP and since then I always try to keep up with the Italian jazz scene.
For all you Jazzcats out there that hasn't yet discovered Italian jazz and recordlabel Ishtar/Schema, here's a little taster.
Ishtar is having it's 20th anniversery this year so the only thing I can say is...Happy birtday and may you continue to provide us with good music another 20 years at least!
