ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Three long form, original tracks and one unusual cover version (“Colors for Susan”, a Country Joe McDonald composition): the musical meeting of Scott Amendola, Michael Manring and Roberto Zorzi results in soundscapes which are “rarely visited music territories” or even “where no musician has ventured before” – to borrow some of the words used by Henry Kaiser in the liner notes. The more than eclectic cultural references include “Comedy of the Art” characters (Facanàpa or Fra Canàpa, from Verona), old men spending their free time watching construction sites and roadworks (the “Umarells” – as described by author Danilo Masotti) and even a dedication to late Italian pornstar Moana Pozzi.

“The two things that I appreciate most about listening to any music is being surprised and hearing things that I have never heard before. That’s what I hear going on here. It’s like the perfect meal of a new kind of cuisine that I have never tasted before.
For me, the only frustrating thing about this album is that I wish we could all play together as a quartet, right now.”

(from the liner notes by Henry Kaiser, written at McMurdo Station, Antarctica, October 18, 2017)

Recorded between Berkeley, USA, and Verona, Italy, between 2016 and 2017.
Edited and mixed by Nicola Cosmo Salerno and Roberto Maria Zorzi (of NAD fame). Drums, guitar, electric bass: a fine album from 3 masters of jazz improvisation!
