ABOUT THE PROJECT
101M043 JUST YOU & I
This recording is inspired by my Italian upbringing and my father’s musical influence on me with the sensitive and passionate guitar music of Italy, France and Latin America.
The compositions on this album are original works composed from the musical inspiration of the bossa nova and samba with a light jazz touch, and the influences from the great guitarists and composers: Antonio Carlos Jobim, Joao Gilberto, Laurindo Almeida, Baden Powell, Charlie Byrd, Tony Mottola, Herb Ellis and Joe Pass.
The bossa nova is a light jazz samba style originating from traditional Brazilian music and rhythms with a hint of American jazz. It was born on the tropical beaches of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, around the late 50s, when a small group of artists and musicians joined together to create a fresh new musical sound.
It became the music of choice for a smart, young, urban Brazilian middle class as the local economy boomed. It drew from the dance traditions of the samba but added a new musical complexity, modernity and poise with a cosmopolitan sensibility. It’s a fusion of gorgeous melodies with rich harmonic chordal voicings inspired by the French impressionist composers such as Debussy and Ravel.
The bossa nova has a serenity and preoccupation with the sun, the sea, like an island paradise and sweet romantic love – and is a major part of Brazil’s musical architecture.
This album is a vibrant collection of elegant and sophisticated chill-out lounge style compositions for those luxurious and passionate moments featuring rich electric guitars, warm strings and smooth percussion grooves.
The album consists of 12 main titles, vocal/lyric versions of three of these titles, underscores, :30s and stings of each.
