Rava / D'Andrea / Vitous / Humair - QUATRE (1989 GALA records)
This is the first (of two) record of an european all-star quartet from late eighties. The group is made by the italians Enrico Rava on trumpet and Franco D'andrea on piano, swiss drummer Daniel Humair and Miroslav Vitous on bass. Each member contributes with nice compositions and the collective spirit is impressive, fed by the lyrical voice of Rava, the subtle harmonies of D'Andrea's piano and the variety of rhythms and timbres produced by Humair and Vitous.
I hope you'll enjoy it! ------------------- CJ
