About the album
Two of the best representatives of the Italian modern jazz together whit the inexhaustible "myth" Aldo Romano put on a disk in which tradition and modernity are merged in a superlative way. The sound is one peculiarity of this record , the result of personal style of the trio, masterfully conducted by Aldo Romano, perfect "center of gravity" of the ensemble. Alessio Menconi is widely recognized as talent of the instrument. Perhaps one of the few guitarists to have developed an Italian style freed from the usual models.menconi has been inserted into the elite world of guitarists with Robben Ford, Steve Lukather, Hiram Bullock, Larry Corryell ont an American production devoted to Jimi Hendrix.
Mannutza Luca boasts a number of exciting collaborations and today is among the leading pianists of the contemporary Italian jazz scene. In this project he plays organ for the first time in his discographic career .
Aldo Romano needs no special presentations: all-round artist (sculpture, painting, poetry and music) is wonderful trait d'union between the two younger musicians.
Class, elegance, sophistication, modernity and lightness at the same time constitute the excellence of this record.
