"I must confess, I have a secret passion: Latin American music, a passion that extends to what is known as Latin Jazz.." (Enrico Pieranunzi)
Enrico Pieranunzi returns to surprise us with this album, mixing his playing cards and veering abruptly into new and unexplored territories. This time Pieranunzi ventures into the limitless and fascinating land of South America, interpreting Latin music in his own creative way.
