Live At The Village Vanguard
Tracklist Hide Credits
"Considered by the Jazz Press as one of the most important pianists to emerge in the last decade, French-born Pianist/Composer Michael Petrucciani is fast becoming a living Jazz legend. This extraordinary artist, with a keen sense of humor, has a zest for living that is thoroughly displayed in his art. He places his creative emphasis on the emotional nature of Jazz rather than the intellectual. "I absolutely prefer to play from the heart. It's much less technical and there's more romanticism."
Michaels zest, lyricism, romanticism and much more come to light right before your eyes on this Laserdisc with Digital Sound.
Michael, along with bassist Palle Danielsson and drummer Eliot Zigmund, and special guest Jim Hall on guitar perform four Petrucciani originals including "The Prayer" which reflects Michael's thankful spirits after moving to his present home in Brooklyn, New York; "Our Tune" written as a special song for his lady; and "Regina" inspired by the music of Brazilian artist Elis Regina.
Those of Michael's fans who know and love his music from his many recordings, now have the opportunity to see him, LIVE AT THE VILLAGE VANGUARD"
