Mozart Works Redefined As Jazz Masterpieces!

John di Martino is a jazz pianist, arranger and producer, based in New York City. He has been described as a "shape-shifter", for his creativity across musical genres.

"The trio session on Jazz Mozart features pianist John di Martino with double bassist Boris Kozlov and drummer Ernesto Simpson in a program of some of Mozart's more romantic pieces. The waltzes, in particular, carry a rewarding texture that allows for natural jazz interpretation. 'The Fire of Passion', for example, from the 'Piano Concerto No. 24 in C minor', briskly ebbs and flows like the motion of our lungs, as we inhale the music's secret. 'Fantasy in D minor' moves with a deliberate air that calls out tension and release in a passionate state. The trio interprets 'Lacrymosa (Requiem, K696)' in a dark murmur that allows plenty of room for pensive thinking. Tender ballads such as 'My Heart Needs to Know' and 'Arc of Love' produce impressive results. diMartino has added one original piece, 'Desert Journey', which contains an exotic charm of its own. Mozart created these works of art over 200 years ago and now di Martino redefines them as jazz masterpieces." - Jim Santella, All About Jazz
