Enrico Pieranunzi & Thomas Fonnesbaek - The Real You - CD/LP
described as an explosion of energy. It's an energy also front and center on Blue Waltz, Stunt Records' 2017 live release by the acclaimed duo. Pieranunzi and Fonnesbæk are two musicians who thrive in each other’s company, challenging and provoking each other in a rare combination of technique and temperament. Individually, they are outstanding on their instruments, and together, it's nothing short of world-class. They've performed extensively together over the years, accumulating a wealth of experience and expanding on a mutual love and appreciation for the musical understanding and talent they share. Kindred musical spirits, whose collaborations caress, create, and challenge. The duo's follow-up album was recorded in 'The Village Recording' studio with Thomas Vang engineering (eventually mixed by Bjarne Hansen), allowing them the opportunity to dig even deeper into the music by utilizing all the tools available in a professional studio. The Real You is dedicated to Bill Evans, who contributes two compositions, Only Child and Interplay, joining Phil Markowitz's Sno 'Peas, and even Johann Sebastian Bach makes an elegant appearance in the closing sequence of Pieranunzi's Bill and Bach. The rest of the repertoire is provided by and credited to the pianist and bassist, who are wonderful composers as well as instrumentalists and improvisors. Artistic presentations of this exceptional quality offer inspiring and lasting experiences for audiences, whether by absorbing them live at a venue in-themoment or listening to a recording after-the-fact on their favorite sound system. If you're lucky enough to have discovered this gem of an album, you are encouraged to sit back, open your heart, and feast your ears. Enjoy the natural inner-peace and the spontaneous sparks of joy offered by the playing of these two great musicians, journeying in tandem through songs and arrangements interpreted honestly and effortlessly. The music on The Real You, created by Enrico Pieranunzi and Thomas Fonnesbæk in July of 2020, will delight and inspire listeners for years to come.
