Arrigo Cappelletti is Italy's Keith Jarrett, not because he more often than not plays in a solo setting, but because his diversity is truly wondrous. From classical to jazz to improvisation, Cappelletti is a musician respected by both the neo-trad jazzers and the free improvisers alike.
Opening with a stunning if spare rendition of "Prelude to a Kiss" everything but the harmony is removedand then sliding first into his well-known "Reflections, No. Cappelletti then carries himself from Monk to "You Are Too Beautiful," and then back into his own takes Mamacita - Blue Mitchell - The Complete Blue Note Blue Mitchell Sessions (1963-67) Tristano's interval phrasing as he chooses three or four scalar inventions to get him to Bill Evans and Duke Ellington while visiting Bartok and Schubert along the way.
