Non Baster Una Vita
This quartet comes from years of playing jazz together, sharing an interest in hard bop, including the less popular composers. This passion matured and developed in their Cluzon Big Band project, where they discovered diverse arrangers as well as performers. A repertoire of original songs ensued. This wonderful musical journey was truly a group effort. Andrea Rapaggi This guitarist, composer and arranger has played jazz guitar since 1986.
