Patrick Vaillant, Riccardo Tesi, Gianluigi Trovesi – Colline (1994)

[CD: Silex, France, 1994; #Y225048]

“Q – How did you meet Ricardo Tesi and Gianluigi Trovesi? Are the three of you still playing together?

A – I’ve heard one of Riccardo Tesi’s first solo concert, in the early 80s. I met him again in some festival. I had talked to him about my desire to make a musical project involving italian and occitan artists. ‘Anita Anita’happened to be the opportunity for it, and I called Riccardo Tesi on this project (1986). We kept playing together, mostly as a duet.

This duet grew up… We met Gianluigi Trovesi in an Italian jazz festival… and it confirmed we had musical things in common.

We don’t play anymore with Gianluigi Trovesi, after touring for about 5 years.

The Tesi-Vaillant partnership never ceased, especially with Riccardo’s project ‘Un Ballo Liscio’. We’re now working again on a new duet repertoire.”
