Mario Rusca has always been considered one of the jazz masters of the European piano, he has written important pages in the history of this musical genre and its evolution. A giant, a living myth!
His collaborations and recordings have gone around the world. From his beginnings alongside the great violinist Joe Venuti to the great personalities of jazz history, including Gerry Mulligan, Tony Scott, Lee Konitz, Chet Baker, Toots Thielemans, Stan Getz, Kenny Clarke, Steve Lacy, without neglecting the many level musicians supreme as Gianni Basso, Enrico Rava, Gianni Bedori, Tullio De Piscopo.
"Live at il Melo" is taken from a memorable evening in a jazz club, in the province of Milan, supported by what can be considered its historical rhythmic section at least in the last few decades: two other heavyweights on the national scene, Fioravanti on double bass and Bagnoli on drums. We immediately realized the high profile of the recording, the special atmosphere of the evening. Abeat conducted a fine work of mixing and mastering, preserving all the goodness of the original recording and the magical spirit of the performance. The result is a vivid, powerful disc with a great artistic pathos and a high audiophile profile. Definitely a "live" record of undoubted value and a further testimony of the class and elegance of Mario Rusca and company.
