Luigi Di Nunzio

From liner notes by Joe Lovano: Luigi Di Nunzio is a brilliant young saxophonist and composer with a vibrant sound that captures you from his first notes !! With this fantastic rhythm section of Antonio Farao, Darryl Hall & Gene Jackson he plays with the passion and drive as a seasoned musician beyond he's years….
