The Piero Tucci Quartet CANUK

THURSDAY 18th January 2018

Undeniably one of the most in-demand pianists in the region, Piero Tucci has been a creative, inspiring presence on the Sheffield music scene for many years, a classy musician with a deep knowledge of the music and respected by all. We’re absolutely delighted that he’s able to bring a quartet to MOON ON THE WATER that features colleagues from his formative years in Canada, Anthony Michelli (drums) and Mike Filice (tenor sax), alongside one of this country’s most talented bass players, Pete Turner. Mike Filice has played with the likes of Bill Stewart, Kenny Werner, and recorded with John Ballantyne, as well as accompanying Aretha Franklin and Diana Ross. Anthony Michelli has worked with Kenny Wheeler, Stan Sulzmann, Nikki Iles, Jerry Bergonzi and many others. With music originally recorded in New York, expect swinging, energetic and hard-edged yet thoughtful contemporary jazz.
