WHAT YOU WRiTE
TO JAZZ PIANO


-October 2012
Jerry D. Tiberi , guitarist • Norberto I checked out Lovely Tunes. I really like your playing. I hear some if my favorite pianists in your playing yet its definitely your own sound.... Your left hand is beautiful--not busy at all ala Bill Evans. Also you have just the right amount of Monk in your playing which is a compliment. Bill Evans + Monk is what I hear in your music + Norberto. I love it!

-March 2011
Scott Albin says:" I enjoyed Thanks for the Riff music

"Norberto Tamburrino e' un eccellente pianista di cui ho spesso parlato su questo sito.." da OnLine-jazz.net

"I am faithful listener of your music and I'd like to share with my radio station listeners your extensive stock of music. Your work is a valuable contribution to my human and cultural growth. Thank you very much." Gustavo Adolfo Bustamante at Ritmos en Jazz-Colombia

About Reflection(s) on Monk: December 02, 2008 " You should know that I receive a lot of music to listen too and I have to say that I really enjoyed your piano playing, tune selection, band personnel and arrangements. This is a first class production all the way."

, the new Album Lovely Tunes rewiewed by Edward blanco at All About Jazz: "A musician with a preference for the softer side of jazz, pianist Norberto Tamburrino offers a break from the boisterous horns and saxophones, and the pounding sounds of the percussive instruments, with a masterful solo piano performance of Lovely Tunes that is truly a pleasure to hear often."

-Saturday 24, Thanks for the Riff on Smooth Jazz radio Channel

Lovely Tunes album reviewed by Gerlando Gatto (on line jazz.net):".una musica che si sviluppa in modo omogeneo, sicuro passando senza alcuna apparente difficoltà dallo swing al jazz anni cinquanta fino a giungere ai giorni d’oggi evidenziando quella enciclopedia cultura pianistica che, unitamente alle caratteristiche prima descritte, fanno di Tamburrino un interprete di primo piano del jazz made in Italy.."

Review at
All About Jazz, Italy:
"Tamburrino ha consolidato una conoscenza molto ampia del linguaggio jazzistico che emerge fin dal "Thanks for the Riff" che apre il disco e dà il titolo all'album. Le raffinateze armoniche si susseguono insieme a invenzioni melodiche interessanti e atmosfere classicheggianti, dando vita ad un piacevole cocktail di standards e brani originali, fra novità e tradizione..." from Thanks for the Riff by Vittorio Loconte

Tamburrino occupies the same rhythmic sensibility as Monk; playing alone, he moves around the piano with just those pensive, eccentric footsteps, clatters, trips.." Read all review by Jay Deshpande

Notes
It's a 12 tunes compilation, containing 10 compositions I did and  Pannonica by Thelonious Monk. The rhythm section is fine : by  Joseph  Lepore on bass and  Bruce  Coxon drums playing on first 6 tunes . ..J. D. Allen recorded his sax on 2 tracks with us in New York on last November. Remaining 6 tracks are in solo piano,
I recorded it in Italy. There's a strange sound tune I called "Stars in Box" in which I overdubbed my piano on a track I did with a keyboard with some koto, organ, violins and el. piano
