Renato Sellani (b. 1927) is an Italian jazz piano maestro who has been active in the Italian jazz scene since the 1950s. He has performed with European and American jazz greats including Lee Konitz, Chet Baker, Sarah Vaughan, Helen Merrill, Phil Woods, Tony Scott, Herb Geller, Stephane Grappelli, Buddy Collette and Franco Ambrosetti.

At age 80, Sellani recorded his Japanese debut CD for Venus Records, My Foolish Heart, which caused a sensation. Actually they recorded two CDs worth of music, and the twin CD O Sole Mio was released at the same. But Venus producer Tetsuo Hara was so impressed with Sellani that he went ahead with another recording shortly thereafter, this time a piano duo project with Danilo Rea, another great Italian pianist of a younger generation.

On this recording, Rea's piano is slightly placed to the right and Sellani's to the left, but their sounds merge and intersect with each other in the middle. The music they create together is beautiful, lyrical and emotional. What stands out is their "singing" quality which can be attributed to their Italian heritage.

The heartwarming interaction of two great souls is captured with marvelous sonics: the pianos sound pure, natural, detailed and warm. This is a wonderful, wonderful piano duo album. Highly recommended!

Produced by Tetsuo Hara. Recorded at The House Recording Studio in Rome on January 2 & 3, 2008. Engineered by Simone Cianmarughi. Mixed by Venus Hyper Magnum Sound: Shuji Kitamura and Tetsuo Hara.
