Jazz pianist and his group performs American, Latin and Brazilian Music

A native of Italy, Renato Sellani has fast become one of the most popular jazz pianists in Europe. Japanese producer Tetsuo Hara discovered him and has recorded him regularly for his Venus label. With bassist Massimo Moriconi and drummer Massimo Manzi, Sellani mostly performs and records American tunes, but has also added Latin and Brazilian music to his roster.

This album was recorded at The House Recording Studio in Rome on July 19, 2007.

"'Besame Mucho' has long been a favorite of jazz musicians, a very sad song usually played slowly for effect, though Sellani's brisk treatment crackles with an energy rarely heard in this Latin favorite, while he showcases his sidemen as well. Sellani's lyricism is on display in his slowly savored setting of 'My Foolish Heart,' a poignant performance. 'My Funny Valentine' is played so frequently that few arrangements seem original, though Sellani finds a novel approach by introducing it with Chopin's 'Prelude in E Minor,' then continuing in a melodically rich manner. The one exception from this mostly mellow ballad session is his breezy take of "It Could Happen to You.' This is easily one of Renato Sellani's best dates as a leader." — AllMusic
