Paolo Pavan: Inside

I have spent a little time in Italian jazz clubs so I feel fairly safe saying that some of Europes best jazz musicians hail from Italy. (I have a French friend who would, and has, aggressively argued this with me). Pianist Paolo Pavan has to be one of the finer jazz artists in Italy and, from the sound of his free online album titled Inside, can clearly hold his own with the upper echelon of jazz musicians throughout the world.
