The opera star loomed large on the musical landscape of his time. So too does Lovano in his.
He explains that “the idea here was to try and interpret Caruso’s music in a way that’s free and organic and to put myself into Caruso’s world.”
No track provides greater evidence of that than Il Carnivale Di Pulcinella, Lovano’s original four-part suite, chronicling the narrative of the annual Neapolitan Carnival. Lovano drives the piece throughout, demonstrating his facility for underscoring mood – variously buoyant, intimate, rousing.
