Title - 'Live in Beverly Hills' (RESONANCE RECORDS)
Artist - Dado Moroni

One of the most exciting artists in jazz today, Dado Moroni is captured live in 2010 at a rising Jazz Stars Studios, here on 'Live in Beverly Hills.'

Indeed, this is the Resonance Records debut from Italian pianist Moroni, and also features Marco Panascia on bass and Peter Erskine on drums.

Those of you that don't know, Moron has performed/recorded with a plethora of jazz greats including Dizzy gillespie, Clark Terry, Lee Konitz, Chet Baker, Joe Henderson, Freddie Hubbard, Terrell Stafford, Woody Shaw, and many others. A highly respected musician, Moroni is a self-taught musician and started playing piano at age four. By his mid-teens he was playing professionally around Italy, and by age 17 he had recorded his first album!

Here on 'Live in Beverly Hills' his love for the jazz language is evident across all seven tracks. The album opens with Moroni's fierce left-hand anchoring a sea of buoyant band interplay on his own 'Ghanian Village,' complete with Kenny Barron-esque piano proddings that recall the elder pianist's rhythmic renegade.

Moroni swings and surprises on the album's second half as well, with nods to both bassist (and sometime employer) Ron Carter on 'Einbahnstrasse,' as well as the sounds of Moroni's homeland on the traditional Sicilian song 'Vitti Na Crozza.'
