Giovanni Tommaso tells himself

Turnaround

Giovanni Tommaso tells about himself, he is entitled We all have blues to cry the book that Giovanni Tommaso, one of the best double bass players that European jazz has ever expressed, has just sent to the bookstore. Published by Albatros, the volume is in fact an autobiography, in which this prodigious little boy of just seventy traces the salient stages of an inimitable career, dense and full of collaborations, unforgettable recordings and hilarious anecdotes. Tommaso is, like any good Tuscan, an affable and entertaining narrator, capable of evoking events, episodes, but also sensations and moods with great irony and precision of detail.

From the beginning with the Quartetto di Lucca until yesterday, passing through the Perigeo - one of the most influential jazz-rock formations of the seventies I also point out Apogee - the book crosses a dense slice of jazz and costume history. For the moment, we will limit ourselves to reporting. Soon, even a more detailed review.
