8 original tracks plus a standard, born about a year ago.
Gianluca Figliola | "It's strictly forbidden" There is an important part of me, of what I am, but in this project, there are parts of my way of being, of the places and people I frequent from which I often and willingly take inspiration and thanks to them, I grow in me the passion for music and jazz spirit. It was Tony Formichella who got me involved and taught me a lot, also a guest of this CD, who carries years of experience which allow him to preserve the strong and hard spirit of past jazz.
The tracks were composed in a fluid way, not simple at times, but perfected with the work under test together with the group. What makes the record original is the variety of genres, from the most sought-after jazz of the 50s-60s to the most contaminated of recent years, and the various environments that contribute to underlining the message we hope arrives to the listeners.
Listening carefully and let the music to fully involve with the passion for music and jazz in every single note of the songs.
Gianluca Figliola | "It's strictly forbidden" the sax, is the protagonist of the song that gave the title to the album, "It's strictly forbidden", a composition dedicated to the instrument. What my group and I expect from the release of this album is to be able to excite those who will listen to it and to be able to make our work known.
The credit goes mainly to the guys with whom I perfected the songs during the early stages, sometimes difficult. We completed the project with initial difficulties, but then vanished thanks to the music that often seemed to come out of itself and solve problems that seemed insurmountable. A final "thank you" goes to those who gave me the opportunity to realize and record what had been in my head for some time.
