Francesco Venerucci TRIO – Early Afternoon Album presented in Sardinia
Early Afternoon is the latest brilliant work of Italian pianist and composer Francesco Venerucci.
Considered one of the most interesting pianists of his generation, Venerucci presents his new album featuring the international jazz icon, Dave Liebman on saxophone.
Early afternoon, published with Dodicilune Record and distributed by Ird in the online stores, embodies author´s incessant quest for stylistic synthesis of different musical languages.
