VVJ 142 - Prodotto da Via Veneto Jazz e Jando Music
I have always loved jazz, and also always loved the compositions of Italian jazz players, many of whom have been stage mates in these 30 years of my career.
This is where my idea of creating starts, a sort of "songbook", which I hope will help people to discover how Italian artists are loved all over the world.
For this project, it came naturally to me to ask an old friend for help, Giovanni Ceccarelli, at the piano and Fender Rhodes.
On the drums there is a drummer who needs no introduction. I think playing with him is the dream of every double bass player, his name is Jeff Ballard who has gladly accepted to be part of this project.
Last but not least, the voice is Elena Romano, a young Florentine singer and songwriter.
Special Guest of the album is Rita Marcotulli who plays the piano on her song "Vagabondi delle Stelle" and on the River song.
