After numerous collaborations Walter Ricci started his own quartet. The experience he has garnered over the past years with first-rate artists in major international jazz venues has guided him in his choice of three of the most original talents of the Italian and French jazz scenes. On the piano Domenico Sanna, just a few years older than Ricci but in complete command of the jazz tradition, whose musical taste and elegant touch are already appreciable. As for bassist Géraud Portal and drummer Rémi Vignolo, who boast a large number of prestigious collaborations, their musical solidity, versatility and generosity make them the ideal rhythmic backup for Ricci. The young Neapolitan’s repertoire combines his original compositions with very personal renderings of jazz standards and songs that span a broad range of musical genres.
