Jazz pianist Stefano Bollani first added his keyboard skills to albums for many of Italy's top pop stars, including Laura Pausini, Irene Grandi, and Jovanotti. He then began to release jazz albums, first with his trio and later as a solo artist (2003's Småt Småt, 2006's Piano Solo), as well as with other trios (2002's Fleurs Bleues, 2005's Gleda: Songs from Scandinavia) and even a quintet (2006's I Visionari). Bollani has also appeared on stages at the Umbria and Montreal jazz festivals, among others, and has performed with musicians like Gato Barbieri, Lee Konitz, Pat Metheny, Paolo Fresu, and Phil Woods. ~ Marisa Brown
