JAZZ. Original compositions by Roberto Magris.
Big Band Ritmo Sinfonica Città di Verona, conductor Marco Pasetto. Special guests: Roberto Magris piano, Massimo Greco trumpet and flugelhorn, Sbibu percussions.
24bit/88.2kHz/40 Tracks digital recording made strictly-live-in-studio (with no digital editing) at Teatro Martinelli, Castelnuovo del Garda, Italy, on September 2008. 

Established in 1946, the Big Band Ritmosinfonica Città di Verona, an acclaimed forty-three-piece super big band from the historical city of Verona, Italy, came to be as an idea from musicians who were members of the Symphonic Orchestra of Verona. Over the years the BBRS evolved into a formidable jazz-centered orchestra originally led by Mario Pezzotta in the 70s and since 1995 under the direction of Marco Pasetto. Playing the music of American jazz giants such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Miles Davis, Pasetto has continued the band’s axploration of jazz to include a repertoire of today’s modern an comtemporary jazz styles leading to the recording of several albums. Enter Italian piano recording virtuoso Roberto Magris an internationally recognized recording artist long known as a master jazz pianist and composer with seventeen recordings to his credit, and happens to be someone with whom Pasetto had previously collaborated with performing much of his music with the BBRS.
With restless Spirits Musical Director and Conductor Marco Pasetto and the BBRS pay tribute to Magris by recording his compositions in September 2008 at Teatro Martinelli in Castelnuovo del Garda, Italy, a performing arts theatre instead of production studio resulting in a live-recording quality sound to the audio.
Roberto Magris headlines as the main guest for this outing although Italian trumpeter Massimo Greco and percussion specialist Sbibu are also featured as specialist guests. The classic big band performance captured on this disc reminescent of the kind of music you hear from today’s comtemporary large orchestras like the renowned 50-piece Netherland’s Metropole Orchestra or the sound once produced by such big bands like Woody Herman’s Thundering Herds or the legendary Stan Kenton Orchestra’s of the past. In fact, BBRS is a brass-rich ensemble loaded with a twenty-piece reed section that can blow your socks off. Magris leads the rhythm side and lends eight vibrant originals including reprising “ Blues for My Sleeping Baby” from his Chek-in album and provides an alternate take to “Ambigous” culminating in nine big band arrangements and seventy minutes of sophisticated and rhytmically-rich modern big band music
