Originally from Milan, Italy, pianist and composer Francesco Crosara’s music melds an impressive mix of jazz improvisation, a romantic vein from his classical training, along with Latin influences. Crosara who has performed with jazz greats such as Lionel Hampton, Roy Hargrove, and Ira Sullivan, is now based in the Northwest, and has collaborated with local stalwarts like Mark Ivester, Jeff Busch, Osama Afifi, and many others.
For his June 11th trio performance with Earshot Jazz, Crosara’s ensemble included talented musicians—bassist Farko Dosumov, and drummer D’Vonne Lewis. Expect both lyrical and exuberant music.
This event was livestreamed from the Royal Room, Seattle.
