Album Notes
Recently inducted into the Seattle Jazz Hall of Fame, internationally recognized producer and multi-instrumentalist Amy Denio has laid a new egg in the nest of her label Spoot Music!

‘SCRAMBLED!’ is the second recording by OU (‘egg’ in Sardinian dialect), a lively Sardinian/Italian world music sextet based in Rome. This absolutely beautiful collection of new compositions by trumpetist/ukeleleist Ersilia Prosperi is published by Amy’s label Spoot Music, and distributed in collaboration with Public Eyesore Records.

'A thoroughly enjoyable listening experience that delights and surprises at nearly every turn, Scrambled is an adventurous album that is at once challenging, accessible, danceable, and thought-provoking.'
~ Earshot Jazz, June, 2015

1. Non C'è Niente da Lavare (There is nothing to wash) ~ a joyous romping bassline provides the foundation for this battle between logic and habit, romanticism and hilarity. Featuring solos by Andrea Pesce on piano and Amy Denio on clarinet.
2. S’OU ABBATTADU (Scrambled Eggs) ~ the egg gets down and gets funky! Performed with expanded horn section and ‘preacher’ Keni Cohen describing the world through the eyes of a hard-boiled egg. In English and Sardinian.
3. Nochdenada (Night of nothing) ~ a dialogue between gentle and ferocious, from anthemic jazz to the wild abandon of energetic rumba. In Spanish.
4. Destiny Sneezed ~ composed by Amy Denio and based on Mexican rhythm ‘son jarocho’, this whimsical song evokes the beauty of dissonance. In English.
5. Deificação ~ featuring Ersilia on ukulele, this rhythmic piece mixes the tenderness of a lullabye with the passion of tango, and echoes of Weimar Germany. In Portuguese.
6. Gallone Bocca Larga (Big Mouth Gallon Jug) ~ commencing with the abandon of samba, then moving forward with the tick-tock of minimalism, this composition is a tribute to the deep love and respect between OU and producer Amy Denio, inspired by their wild adventures on the road. In Italian.
7. I Like You ~ featuring Denio on Jew’s Harp, this piece is destined to be an underground disco classic!
8. Andiamo a Conoscerci Meglio a Parigi ~ a tender, evocative illustration about the beauty and illusion of love. Featuring Denio on clarinet. Sung in English.
9. Jengi ~ a wistful song about ups and downs transforms into mesmerizing and gorgeous trance music. Sung in Spanish and Pygmy.
