Roman pianist and film composer Armando Trovajoli scored over 300 feature films during his remarkable career. Starting out in the 1930s as a player in Orchestra Rocco Grasso and Sesto Carlini’s beloved jazz orchestra, in 1949 he represented Italy at the Festival du Jazz de Paris and he began composing films three years later.

Jazz Piano, released by RCA in 1959, saw Trovajoli fronting a quartet with three of his regular orchestra members, namely drummer Sergio Conti, bassist/arranger Berto Pisano and guitarist Enzo Grillini, sensitively tackling Monk’s “Round Midnight,” relegating “Get Me To The Church On Time” as rapid piano jazz, and plenty showtunes similarly reconfigured.
