Tina May vocals, Enrico Pieranunzi piano This Thursday evening at Seven Arts - "Enrico Pieranunzi, the Italian pianist who accompanied Chet Baker in the 1970’s and 80’s is an underrated giant of European jazz. He’s an uncannily sensitive foil for vocalists as well as a gifted improviser and composer. This UK tour pairs him well with the accomplished British singer Tina May with whom he recorded the album "Home is where the heart is" in 2015. Deceptively low lit music with a hot creative core" John Fordham - Guardian.
