Alessandro Presti

"Little more than a promise and not a bet at all. You don’t often play a record and realize it is something novel, fresh, intriguing... 

A graduate of the music conservatory in Messina, he shows outstanding technical command  and confident phrasing, is good at high-pitched notes and is suggestive and romantic in ballads. His vibrant, colourful sound is the firm foundation of this record, for which he wrote all of the pieces and put together an excellent line-up, a quintet in which he often plays duets with Daniele Tittarelli’s alto saxophone on the gorgeous rhythmic structures composed by Alessandro Lanzoni, Gabriele Evangelista and Francesco Ciniglio. Devoted to research and exploration, Presti draws on the past and time here is not the time mankind experiences but has different rhythms, colours, shapes. And gives rise to a unique, distinctive and genuine style that indelibly marks this work". (F. Scoppio)

Recorded in Cavalicco on 10 - 11 - 12 February 2016 at Artesuono Recording Studio Recording engineer Stefano Amerio
