ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“A heartfelt, touching CD full of thought provoking themes and with high level musicianship throughout. It is a creative, prolific, soulful offering. … Acceptance is truly a gift!” (Terri Lyne Carrington)

"Very soulful, groovy, introspective and hopeful at the same time" (Antonio Sanchez)

Award winning drummer Marcello Pellitteri has produced this album dedicated to the memory of his daughter, Veronica Pellitteri (1991-2014). Marcello says about his daughter: "She has taught me that acceptance of unfortunate life experiences is the way to overcome their consequences. Acceptance has transformed my deepest sorrow into this music."
Marcello wrote all the music in this CD except for an instrumental cover of Stay, a song by Mikky Ekko and Justin Parker made famous by Rhianna.

This recording, co-produced by the fantastic Alain Mallet (Sting-Paul Simon), features an incredible line up of players from NYC (guitarists David Gilmore and Yotam Silberstein, bassist François Moutin, vocalist Philip Hamilton and organist Gary Versace), as well as the amazing ORCHESTRA GIOVANILE MEDITERRANEA from Palermo, conducted by the sublime Antonio Maniaci. Veronica is also featured on the last track of this CD accompanied by the orchestra, bassist Matthew Parrish and guitarist Kevin Barry. This song she sings, titled Silent Song, was originally recorded by Veronica as the main theme of a score Marcello wrote for a theater play called "Silent Song of Genjer Flower" by Faiza Mardzoeki. After Veronica's departure from this world Marcello isolated her vocal tracks and rewrote an arrangement for string orchestra and an unplugged band.

Profits from CD sales will go to the Veronica Pellitteri Memorial Fund. This fund will FOREVER give a scholarship to a talented graduating student from the Fiorello LaGuardia Performing Arts high school in NYC, where Veronica graduated from in 2009. Veronica was a pianist and a singer.
