Italian pianist Alessandro Lanzoni has been picking up awards and citations since he first came on the scene in his late teens.Lanzoniís fourth recording [as leader] for CAM JAZZ is Unplanned Ways, a confident trio performance with bassist Thomas Morgan and drummer Eric McPherson that takes in jazz repertory classics by Billy Strayhorn, George Shearing, Thelonious Monk and Jimmy Rowles, but also more freely improvised structures by the trio itself. Lanzoniís maturity of approach isnít defined by technical virtuosity so much as by an intensely musical vision that transforms whatever material falls across its path. One senses him always on the brink of making another fresh musical transition and another leg of an already impressive and creative musical journey. With Morgan and McPherson, he delivers an album that sits comfortably with the classic piano trios but lacks nothing of the exploratory instinct that has transformed the trio format in recent years. Under the supervision of music producer Ermanno Basso, Unplanned Ways was recorded at The Samurai Hotel Recording Studio Astoria NY by David Stoller, mixed in November 2018 by Stefano Amerio at Artesuono Recording Studio in Cavalicco (UD), Italy, and mastered by Danilo Rossi.
