Sergio Veschi had the opportunity to record Massimo Urbani for his RED Records label on several occasions resulting in five releases. Veschi has released the entire five-CD output of Massimo Urbani's recordings for the label. These five releases are comprised of four discs recorded under Urbani's leadership and one recorded under the leadership of bassist Giovanni Tommaso featuring Urbani. Massimo Urbani was a singular Italian talent who burned brightly for a short time leaving an indelible mark on the face of Jazz.

His tone and attack was large and urgent. His technique was studied and his velocity light speed. Massimo Urbani deserves this recognition. Read more on Last.fm.
