12 albums, recorded live on location at the prestigious wineries of Northeastern Italy.
Wine and jazz. They somehow belong together; not because the music found its most loyal audience in dimly lit cellars, but because both demand a subtle combination of expertise and technique, great materials, and above all, time. It takes time to make a great wine. In jazz, time is not just the rhythm that propels the music, but the accumulated experience of generations of great players. Unlike commercial music and mass-produced wine, every good jazz performance is different. When the cork is pulled, you never quite know what is going to happen. Settle back with these twelve extraordinary records and savour them slowly. Jazz and wine – they take time. (Brian Morton)
