Who Is This Guy?

Who is this guy and how did he manage to get Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Andy Summers and Carlos Santana on his CD? Paolo Rustichelli is a keyboard player from Italy, that much I know; something about approaching these guys at various Jazz Festivals throughout Europe and playing demos for them is the story I've read. Whatever ...... I came across this CD in 1992, freshly wedded, in Raleigh, NC. Didn't take me long to decide that The Soundtrack Of My Life needed a new addition; I'm talking about the CD, not the wife, especially after seeing who some of the side players on this disc were. Of special note is the tune Capri (Reprise) where Miles blows without the mute, he really was not recorded much if any in his later period without using the mute on his trumpet. Wayne is featured on Femmes and Bokrug. Enjoy!
Listen to 'Femmes', 'Capri', 'Bokrug' and 'Capri (Reprise)'
