Overview

Journey to Donnafugata

On this atmospheric set, Italian pianist Salvatore Bonafede performs a set of themes from the film The Leopard. While a few of the melodies are brief and act as transitions (particularly a couple Verdi pieces), there are some strong compositions here that are uplifted by the superior trumpet and flügelhorn playing of Enrico Rava. Rava sometimes sounds a bit like Miles and at other times drops the coolness for some hotter solos. Guitarist John Abercrombie also adds to the atmosphere, as does guest acoustic guitarist Ralph Towner. Although none of the themes (mostly by film composer Nino Rota) are destined to become standards, the rich melodies, Rava's tone (which is often filled with longing), and Bonafede's arrangements make this a haunting and memorable outing.
