#23] Paolo Lattanzi Group Night Dancers
Italian drummer Paolo Lattanzi leads his sophisticated ensemble through focused,
ornately performed original compositions. The recording quality on Night Dancers
is very impressive and unlike some percussionist bandleaders, Lattanzi gives the
quintet much space to explore. The percolating “In a Dark Room” shows his strength
at laying down uptempo grooves, while “14/2” features beautiful piano chord clusters.
