Jazz at The Cherry is proud to present the Rick Forschino Trio. Together, they will cover the work of renowned jazz artist, Michel Petrucciani. During his brief thirty-six year life, Petrucciani stunned the jazz world with his expansive compositions and stylistic renditions. His unbounded approach to the medium inspired Monterey Jazz Festival icon, Charles Lloyd, to come out of retirement in 1982 and begin touring with him. Rick Forschinos arrangements artfully capture the musical spirit and essence of Petruccianis work. This wonderful program will also include a few compositions by master Italian jazz pianist, Enrico Pieranunzi. Joining Rick will be bassist, Bill DeLap, and drummer, Greg Janusz.
