Live in Beverly Hills is the latest from Italian pianist Dado Moroni, recorded in a city that’s known more for movie stars than jazz bars. Moroni and his trio of drumming great Peter Erskine and bassist Marco Panacia give a spirited performance in a front of a receptive audience at the Rising Jazz Stars venue in the world-renown Los Angeles suburb. Erskine and Panacia provide a solid musical canvas for Moroni’s broad strokes and vibrant splashes of color. The three musicians cover a range of tunes by various composers, including three written by Moroni. If hearing these three great artists work together weren’t enough, the project includes a DVD of the performances that is equally captivating and thoroughly enjoyable.
