Alma is a collaboration between six-time GRAMMY's-nominated Cuban composer and pianist Omar Sosa and celebrated Italian trumpet and flugelhorn player Paolo Fresu, with guest cello contributions on four tracks by noted Brazilian conductor, arranger, producer and cellist Jaques Morelenbaum. The compositions are all written by Omar Sosa and Paolo Fresu, except for Under African Skies , a version of the popular track from Paul Simon's Graceland. The music on Alma (soul) is generally melodic and medium-paced, except for a fiery version of Omar s composition Angustia. Fresu's flugelhorn work is sweet and warm and the rich and playful musical connection between Fresu and Sosa is evident throughout the recording.

While the connection between Cuban pianist Omar Sosa and Italian trumpeter Paolo Fresu was established back in 2006, their partnership truly blossomed with Alma (Ota Music, 2012), a beauty of an album with a soft sell approach. That record—quite possibly the most moving item in either man's discography—prioritized heart over all else, and this follow-up date follows suit.

Se è vero che la musica di questo CD è nata per accompagnare due film (Il più crudele dei giorni e L'isola), è altrettanto vero che Paolo Fresu non 'subisce' tale condizione, assemblando i brani in maniera tale da dar vita ad un lavoro unitario, dalla forte identità e tale da sintetizzare varie fasi della sua ormai già lunga carriera.

Italian jazz trumpet and flugelhorn player, arranger and composer. He was born in 1961 in Berchidda, Sardinia. Notable were his collaborations with Ralph Towner, Uri Caine, Carla Bley and many others. Fresu also composes for movies, theater plays and other popular media. His style is based on the Miles Davis hardbop sound of the 50's, but not being a mere imitation he draws inspiration from Mediterranean musical heritage and classical music.

E via, tutti a dire: "il jazz incontra la classica" e viceversa, "Fresu lirico", "il trombettista sardo improvvisa sui canoni classici" e così ruzzolando nella banalità menzognera. La prima verità è che "Vinodentro" è una colonna sonora dell'omonimo film di Ferdinando Vicentini Orgnani, che ha nel cast Giovanna Mezzogiorno e Vincenzo Amato. La seconda è che Fresu non è nuovo a lavori di questo tenore musicale: l'elenco sarebbe troppo lungo e tedioso.

Italian trumpeters Enrico Rava and Paolo Fresu pay tribute to the late Chet Baker – but take it from us, the set's way more than just a simple tribute album! Some of the tunes might be familiar ones from Chet's book, but the performances here are often distdemoinctly un-Baker-like – taken at times, tempos, and tones that really push the envelope – and which make the album more of a nstration of the instrumental strengths of Rava and Fresu than a return to Chet's earlier sound.

Sardinian trumpeter Paolo Fresu, French accordionist Richard Galliano and Swedish pianist Jan Lundgren form the trio “Mare Nostrum”. This band forges connections between the discrete musical cultures of its three protagonists. This new album marks the return to the studio of a European supergroup. And they're on top form.
