A brilliant spark of intelligence, underlying emotional pulse and intensity suggest a new aspect of European elegance, together with his finest men, Vincenzo Florio on bass and Marco Valeri on drums.

Album previews


dg_logoA trio set by the pianist from Nicola Conte’s group – and a wicked little record that both lives up to his previous efforts, and has us hearing Pietro in a whole new light as well! There’s a bold rhythmic pulse to most of the numbers here – energy that’s totally great – and which seems to come as much from Lussu’s touch on the piano as it does the bass and drums – which are almost used equally, and wrapped up together – sort of in the manner of Robert Glasper’s best music in recent years! Lussu plays both piano and Fender Rhodes – and other group members include Vincenzo Florio on bass and Marco Valeri on drums. Titles include “Freak E”, “Dakota Song”, “Afro-Centric”, “She Knows The Ropes”, and “Northern Lights”. © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.
