Maria Pia De Vito

Following her successful-- full house--U.S. debut at the Blue Note, this release includes two additional astounding scat tracks (#2 & 13) by Maria Pia De Vito, and an elegantly re-styled booklet filled with photos by Alessandro D'Urso.

"When De Vito cut loose with startling intervallic leaps, complex internal overtones and keening, swooping, racing runs, it was a rush. She blew wild and free across Mitchell's already counter-intuitive bar lines. But also on every song, before her solo flights, De Vito did full justice to Mitchell's lyrics. Working in a language other than her own, like an accomplished actress, she brought Mitchell's words to life with altered, personalized meanings." (Thomas Conrad)

SO RIGHT: lyrics, melodies, great musicians.
An album of songs performed and partly written by four of the most prominent figures in international jazz. From the re-reading of songs by Joni Mitchell, new original songs are sought and written: an excellent union between the language of songwriting and the universal world of jazz, skilfully performed by great artists.
An intense and elegant interpretation by one of the leading Italian jazz vocalists, the unequaled Maria Pia De Vito.
