Press Release

Un incontro chiaroscurale di intensa suggestione quello tra il pianista americano Joel Holmes e la cantante campana Ileana Mottola, nato con la spontaneità delle cose che sembrano destinate ad essere.
Parole che si incastonano preziose tra le note di composizioni cesellate dalle abili mani di chi porta avant la tradizione della grande scuola jazzistica statunitense arricchendola di dettagli stilistici multiforme; la voce tocca tasti profondi dell’animo umano ed il piano canta storie.
Il timing solido e al tempo stesso liricamente fl uido di Francesco Puglisi al contrabbasso è una certezza. Il drumming di Alessandro D’Anna fonde con originalità la tradizione italiana e la sperimentazione nord europea.
Uno “space travel” alla ricerca di nuovi mondi sonori senza mai perdere di vista la base.

ENGLISH 
 
The “chiaroscuro” encounter between the US pianist Joel Holmes and the Italian singer Ileana Mottola evocates an intense effect born
with the spontaneity of things that seem to be destined. Words that are preciously set between the notes of compositions chiseled by the skilled hands of one who carries on the tradition of the great American jazz school, enriching it with multifaceted stylistic details; the voice touches deep keys of the human soul and the piano sings stories. The solid timing combined with the lyrical flow of Francesco Puglisi on double bass is a certainty. Alessandro D'Anna’s drumming fuses
Italian tradition and Northern European experimentation with originality.
A "space travel" in search of new sound worlds without ever losing sight of the base.
