This is the type of lush Mediterranean ballad that you would bet is an Italian standard. Yet it is an original Rava composition, which he and his partners play with such feeling and conviction that it sounds totally idiomatic. No need to overplay, even during the improvisations, to give an impression of serene joy, of congenial getting together, of attention to sound and details that remind us of all that Italy has produced and can still produce in the fine arts, including cooking and "art de vivre." Don't they call easy living "la dolce vita" over there?
