The extraordinary pianist Antonio Farao' is bringing together an outstanding jazz Trio with Yuri Goloubev on double bass and Vladimir Kostadinovic on drums. They will perform Antonio’s original compositions and standards rearranged.

“I'm not often surprised by the recordings of musicians the way I was overwhelmed the first time I heard Antonio Farao' on one of his recent CD's. What amazed me was what I felt inside of me. There is so much warmth, conviction and power to his playing. I was immediately attracted to his harmonic conception, the joy of his rhythms and swing feel and the grace and ingenuity of his melodic improvisational lines. Antonio is not only a fine pianist but a great one.” (Herbie Hancock)
