About the album

While it would be accurate to describe Santilli/Alderighi’s debut album as "chamber jazz", this label does not truly reflect the wide musical range on offer here.
Marco Santilli’s compositional style consciously employs the expressiveness of both classical music and jazz. With an almost dreamlike stylistic assuredness, he creates a framework which brings the colourful sonic spectrum of his clarinet and bass clarinet to light, as well as giving Paolo Alderighi and his piano ample room to breathe.
It is even nicer to let the titles such as “Il tanghero va all’immusonita sciorinando lusinghe” (the bully spreads his flattery before he sulks) slowly melt across your tongue, and then lose yourself in the poetry of the music...
"Godiva Soleva" is thirteen pieces of music, brilliantly performed with clarinet and piano, as well as thirteen atmospherically dense tales. They tell of the art of seduction, of the eradication of the superfluous, and of the bridges built between immigrants in the Leventina valley and those who have reached the Rio de la Plata. They speak of the allure of tender melancholy and joy, and see flashes of great beauty in the smallest of things.
"Godiva Soleva" is thirteen poetical pearls of chamber jazz, composed and played by Marco Santilli and Paolo Alderighi, two masters of their craft!
