Too Marvelous For Words (CD Album)
Domenico Sanna Trio | Tosky Records®
One of the finest Italian jazz pianists presents a repertoire of original songs and selected standards, following the footsteps of notorious visionaries such as Ahmad Jamal, George Shearing and Brad Mehldau. Without the slightest concession to sterile virtualism, this exceptional pianist is magnificently accompanied by two of the most representative musicians of their generation: Marco Valeri on drums, whose list of collaborations is already almost as long as that of his far more experienced partner, Giorgio Rosciglione on double bass, an avant-garde classic artist, famous protagonist of the Italian jazz scene since the early 60’s.
Domenico Sanna, winner of the Tuscia in Jazz 2008 Jimmy Awards as Best Pianist, as well as winner of the prize Luca Flores 2009, boasts collaborations with national and international artists: Stefano Di Battista and Nicky Nicolai “Over the Sun” (Universal Music), Rick Margitza “One Special Night in Italy” (Tuscia in Jazz Records) with Flavio Boltro, Michel Rosciglione, Remi Vignolo and Francisco Mela, Jd Allen recording together “Too High” in the quintet with Marco Acquarelli, Dave Liebman and, again, Steve Grossman, Roberto Gatto, Greg Hutchinson, Gege Munari, Dede Ceccarelli, Fabio Morgera, Daniele Tittarelli and many others.

He collaborated with Dado Moroni, Dave Liebman, Danilo Rea, Eddie Gomez, Kurt Rosenwinkel, George Garzone, Eddie Henderson, Steve Grossman, John Amato, Flavio Boltro.
