Dino Rubino On Jazz Trio with Emanuele Cisi and Paolino Dalla Porta
“On Jazz Trio” is the project of Dino Rubino, the Sicilian trumpet player and pianist, with Emanuele Cisi on tenor sax and Paolino Dalla Porta on double bass. Together they have recorded “Where is the Happiness”, Rubino’s fourth record for Paolo Fresu’s Tŭk Music.
Rubino won the Massimo Urbani prize in 1998 as the best new national talent and was part of the Francesco Cafiso band. In 2011 Fresu called him to Tŭk Music for which he recorded four albums. Rubino is also a member of the Sardinian trumpeter’s trio for the project Tempo di Chet. Rubino worked with Cisi on the beautiful album by the Turin saxophonist dedicated to Lester Young. Cisi has been one of the most influential jazzmen on the scene for many years, that is, since 1995 when he was elected best new talent in the Jazz Music referendum. Since then he has recorded about ten albums as leader and a hundred as sideman or co-leader for Italian and European, as well as American and Japanese, labels. Lately, he has also worked on Baroque repertoire, in particular the music of Monteverdi.
Finally, Paolino Dalla Porta, one of the historical names among Italian double bass players, who participated in a couple of Rubino’s CDs and is a member of Fresu’s Devil Quartet. He has a very long career behind him (he has been active on the jazz scene since 1978) and always at a very high level. Among the artists with whom he has collaborated in the recording studio are Kenny Wheeler, Stefano Battaglia, Guido Manusardi, Mick Goodrick, Riccardo Fassi. In 2015 he became a member of Oregon, as a replacement for Glen Moore. His latest record as leader is Moonlanding.
