Enrico Rava Special Edition Septet
To celebrate his eightieth birthday, last year Enrico Rava created a “Special Edition” consisting of some of the talented musicians he has discovered and launched in recent years. At the age of eighty, Rava has not lost his ability to create new projects and musical partnerships and to discover and nurture a new generation of musicians. Examples of this are his groups Rava Under 21 and New Generation. Surrounding himself with younger players, Rava has continued to explore and innovate. His Special Edition is made up of Francesco Bearzatti, Gianluca Petrella and Giovanni Guidi, together with the rhythm section of his New Quartet (winner of the 2015 Musica Jazz poll) featuring Francesco Diodati on guitar, Gabriele Evangelista on bass Enrico Morello on drums.
