“D.N.A.” is a contemporary jazz album recorded at Mondial Studios in Milan in December 1996 by two ‘heavyweights’ of Italian and international jazz music, trumpeter Enrico Rava and pianist Mario Rusca, the latter here feature with his trio accompanied by double bass player Lucio Terzano and drummer Tony Arco. The album alternates original compositions written by Mario Rusca with evergreen classics of the genre.
Released on CD in 1997, “D.N.A.” was recorded by sound engineer Walter Biondi and produced by artistic director Vanni Moretto and SAAR Records founder Walter Guertler. On the occasion of Record Store Day 2022, this little gem of ‘Jazz Made in Italy’ is reissued for the first time in LP format, with a completely renewed artwork and on clear red vinyl.
