Antonio Faraò, one of the most interesting jazz pianists of the last generation, has become an official “Yamaha Artist” “I'm not often surprised by the recordings of musicians the way I was overwhelmed the ﬁrst time I heard Antonio Faraò on one of his recent CD's. What amazed me was what I felt inside of me. There is so much warmth, conviction and power to his playing. I was immediately attracted to his harmonic conception, the joy of his rhythms and swing feel and the grace and ingenuity of his melodic improvisational lines.
