Description

Legendary jazz bassist Eddie Gomez and his Italian quintet recorded in Bologna, Italy while on tour in the winter of 2010. 'Per Sempre' features original compositions by his band as well as an inventive version of the jazz standard "Stella by Starlight". Gomez's refined arco work blends beautifully with the double bass timbres of the horns while his signature pizzicato style adds bounce and motion to the group.

Bassist Eddie Gomez has been on the cutting edge of music for over four decades. His impressive resumé includes performances with jazz giants such as Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Gerry Mulligan and Benny Goodman. Eddie's distinctive sound and style can be heard on hundreds of recordings spanning the worlds of jazz, classical, Latin jazz, rhythm & blues, popular and contemporary music. At age 21, Eddie became the bassist with the Bill Evans Trio - and rose quickly to prominence. For 11 years, he played an integral role in the Trio's sound and evolution, and played on many recordings including two Grammy-winning albums.

Personnel: Eddie Gomes (bass), Marco Pignataro (tenor & soprano saxophone), Matt Marvuglio (flute), Teo Ciavarella (piano), Massimo Manzi (drums)
