QUOTES:

 

“Alessandro’s new release is a great record in the classic sense of the term: an album of tunes with
contrasts of style and grooves that keeps the listener entertained from start to finish. Performed by a
stellar rhythm section, it harkens back to the tradition of organ trios with Boogaloo and blues to ballads. Even though there is a lot of energy in this set of music what stands out to me are the beautiful ballads penned by the leader – check out “V” and the walking ballad “Ring Shout” and enjoy!”

Freddie Bryant (guitarist, composer, associate professor at Berklee College of Music)

 

 

“The thing that two young, and terrific, talents like Florio and Magatelli are able to make such a new
and special music with such old ingredients it is an ultra-rare circumstance, in Italy and not only in
Italy.”

Vincenzo Martorella- Music Critic (JazzIt, AllAboutJazz Italy, Chitarre etc..)

 

 

┬źAlessandro has a shining, brilliant tone that adds a bite to his arrangements and original songs along
with his clever and inventive chords. This duo recording shows his “Monk-like” humor that is rare in
guitar recordings. It also shows that he’s using his influences to develop a unique and individual
voice┬╗.
