Massimo Faraò, who is from Italy, first visited the United States in 1983 when he played with Red Holloway. In Europe he has since worked with many top performers including Tony Scott, Jesse Davis, Franco Ambrosetti, Nat Adderley, Jack DeJohnette and a notable tour in 2007 with organist Joey DeFrancesco. Even with all of that, it is as the leader of his own trio that he really shines. Farao’s passionate style and stoic romanticism are very attractive along with the rich harmonies he creates. For this release his quartet features Davide Palladin, Nicola Barbon and Roberto “Bobo” Facchinetti, accompanied with Academia Arrigoni’s Strings Orchestra, conducted by Bruno Cesselli.
