These are mature talents, presented to the world by the Italianbranch of Blue Note. It isn't necessary though, because Paolo Fresuand Uri Caine already have quite a name among jazz connoisseurs.They recently released the album Think and we can expect them totap this source extensively. Just like on the CD, the AlboradaString Quartet will be present at the festival. It's a quartet thatrenders a classical touch to the music. As a critic for Jazzismhopefully uttered, it is 'an album that could be a fine startingpoint for a concert series.' His wish has been granted now. Anotherrave review: 'This is a great album that tells of the joy ofplaying music.' Despite the strings, trumpeter Paolo Fresu (1961)and pianist Uri Caine (1956) do actually play jazz, as theydemonstrated with their musical duets. Paolo Fresu is anexperienced trumpet player with a very beautiful tone and Uri Caineeffortlessly follows suit. No wonder, because he used to play withthe greatest jazz musicians in America but also performs as aclassical pianist.
