between the lines, 2003, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Fusion
O’s Notes: Pianist Occhipinti takes a journey into his inner creative spirits. He complements his piano with strings, clarinets, bass and drums. The three lengthy compositions are based on his love for ancient music, world voyages and his interpretations of music. That may seem rather nebulous but the compositions come together nicely. It’s like a marriage of older classical music form with contemporary jazz improvisation. We’ll call it free fusion.
