In this CD I offer a picture of my musical experiences and inspirations from diverse places and different times. You will encounter all them woven together: Sicily, Mediterranean, Africa, the spirit of Coltrane, my passion for Jazz, and at the same time, contemporary European and Brazilian music. As a man of the third millennium, my musicial compositions are characterized by these influences, their connections and "interferences". I have always been fascinated by the spontaneity of improvised music, how chance occurances happen at specific moments and places. I am most interested in the unique instant and it's feeling translated into music. For this photograph taken in Rio de Janeiro in 2007 I invited some very special people who generously contributed to the production of this recording, 'à vera," all of us playing together for the moment, without metronome and with little editing.
