Italian pianist Domenico Sanna conceptualized Brooklyn Beat! out of necessity, driven by a focus on the beat -- the pulse of the musical world. His search for the beat took him to the rhythmic origins of jazz, though the resultant music has a contemporary groove and sound, with elements of R&B and swing. Accompanying the pianist here are: Ameen Saleem, one of the most requested bassists in America and Europe and a member of various Roy Hargrove-led bands, as well as a collaborator of Marcus Strickland, Greg Hutchinson, Andy Bey, and Nicholas Payton; and drummer Dana Hawkins, a collaborator of Jeremy Pelt, Esperanza Spalding, Ambrose Akinmusire, and Gerald Clayton. This CD is a co-release from Via Veneto Jazz and Jando Music.
