So what tunes does the Testore Trio play?

This trio comes out of the musical traditions of Italia and American improvised music.
Jazz players usually start by playing a tune (called the head) and then invent other things that fit over the chords. This means that someone has to keep playing the chords while a solo is happening. 
The jazz tunes played by this trio will be familiar with most people - they have names like Sweet Georgia Brown and Take The 'A' Train.
The Italian tunes are played like jazz tunes but often go off to a different set of chords, so expect a few surprises
The original tunes are written by Riccardo Testore and some tend to have a slightly Eastern European flavour. 
This is an improvising trio and all three of the members are featured.
