Bruno Heinen Piano
Andrea Di Biase Bass
Gene Calderazzo Drums
Bruno Heinen brings his new trio project featuring Italian bassist Andrea Di Biase (Kenny Wheeler), and acclaimed US drummer Gene Calderazzo (Pharoah Sanders) to the Gosforth Civic Theatre. The project consists of Bruno's 8 movement work inspired by the composition 8 Improvisations Op 20, written by Bartók in 1920.
This UK/European album release tour marks the centenary of the creation of the work, with influences for Bruno's treatment of the piece ranging from Ellington's Money Jungle and Alice Coltrane, to Ravel and Ligeti.
