Rava's most recent efftorts, Rava On The Dance Floor (2012) and Tribe (2011), have garnered rave reviews, with All About Jazz calling Tribe "one of the strongest albums of Rava's career." Members of his quintet include trombonist Gianluca Petrella, pianist Giovanni Guidi, bassist Gabriele Evangelista, and drummer Fabrizio Sferra.

The concert will begin with a set by Umbria Jazz Scholarship winner Sarah McKenzie. The Berklee Global Jazz Institue (BGJI) student ensemble will then take the stage, joined by Grammy-winning bassist John Patitucci.
