The suggestion that runs through the songs of the new record "... Even crumbs have a taste", is the one according to which every human being is a "healthy carrier" of a secret, the person is itself a secret, to be revealed or even just to be investigated, in a process that helps to understand which are the parts of us that we really love and which we do not, which ones we would like to change, which ones we have inherited but perhaps do not belong to us at all and which, instead, although we are profoundly ours, we have yet to discover, to recognize. In this sense "... even crumbs have a taste", just do not throw them off the table but stop patiently to taste them.
"The path of musical research is long and changes every time something happens to us and in us: music is the fruit, the essence of what marks us by living, of our hopes, of the myths we grow up with, of our joys and sufferings. We play what we are and jazz is the ultimate expression of that. Laura and Sade seek, through the deep observation of the humanity that surrounds them, they look, they learn. A CD that narrates, that moves through their emotions: emotions that were lived, filtered and then made Music."
"A graceful CD, where the main emotional string is nostalgia. I do not know how autobiographical the lyrical work is, but it often gives the feeling of wanting to balance unfinished business, as if to want to dissolve small laces in the soul. These two talented musicians convey the desire to touch and master their inner voice and for that they are definitely on the right track. The album is simple and articulated at the same time, developed around a precise color that touches jazz, pop and folk music, Sicily is a scattered ingredient that adds variety and tone. The naivety of some choices is however compensated by a healthy desire to get involved. The tracks, that in my opinion embellish the entire album, are the title track (Segreto) "Anche le briciole hanno un sapore (Even the crumbs have a flavor)", the nostalgic (Nonnuzza) and the exuberant (Voccuzza di Meli)."
