Enrico Rava at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery

This Sunday (February 26) the Albright-Knox Art Gallery will be hosting a performance of Trumpeter Enrico Rava and his band Enrico Rava Tribe in a rare North American appearance.  Mr. Rava is an international jazz icon as well as one of the most acclaimed Italian jazz musicians in history.  The Guardian refers to the 72-year-old as “one of Miles Davis’s most imaginative inheritors while Jazzwise has called his most recent ECM recordings as “among the best jazz albums of the last decade.”  Enrico Rava Tribe also features the remarkable young trombonist Gianluca Petrella as well as pianist Giovanni Guidi, bassist Gabriele Evangelista, and drummer Fabrizio Sferra.  Rava will only be touring four cities in the United States; besides Buffalo, these places include New York, Portland, and San Francisco.  The concert will begin at 3 p.m. in the Gallery’s Auditorium with a pre-concert discussion called “Fresh Sounds of Europe” with Art of Jazz Series Producer Bruce Eaton beginning at 2 p.m.  The concert has been made possible, in part, through the generous support of Christi and Bruce Reinoso. 

Tickets cost $25 for Albright-Knox Art Gallery Members/$29 for non-members and can be purchased at the Gallery’s Admission Desk or online at
