O’s Notes: Canadian pianist Tony Foster leads a trio with Nate Parker (b) and Joe Poole (d) on“Project Paradiso. The title is inspired by the film Cinema Paradiso, as are nine of the ten selections, all scores from the silver screen with Tony’s “Mr. Mancini”. The composers are Ennio Morricone and Henry Mancini. Some of the tunes are familiar and others rather obscure. But all are alive with Foster’s treatment in a jovial set. Tony brings the music into the forefront without the video in an enjoyable session.
