Music Monday: Mare Nostrum-“Mare Nostrum III”

I was listening to a Jazz playlist on Spotify, and I came across this album from a group I never heard of before called Mare Nostrum. As you can probably gather from the title, this recording is the third part of a trilogy, released on the ACT label.

The Album is made up of classic European tunes performed with freshness and verve, and if you have a high-quality playback system it will draw you into the performance from the first note. I was actually ready to hop on a plane to Paris after listening to “The Windmills of Your Mind”.  Give your headphones or speakers a good workout with this one today!

From The Guardian:

There are three of them: Sardinian trumpeter Paolo Fresu, French accordionist Richard Galliano and Swedish pianist Jan Lundgren. They all have a flair for melody and a similar lightness of touch, which makes their combined sound both delicate and irresistible.
