great interpretation, 21 Dec. 2011
Nino Rota is one of my favourite composers. I have many albums of his music, played by various groups and musicians. This album is my favourite, at least for the time being.
Accordion is probably the best instrument to play Rota's music, and no one can match Richard Galliano on this instrument. He chose fantastic jazz musicians to play Rota with him (John Surman on sop. sax., Dave Douglas on trumpet, Boris Kozlov on double bass and Clarence Penn on drums). Their stimulating interpratation is faithful to the spirit of Rota yet very personal.
I love it.
