The beginning of the story:

 

It was while doing a seminar with the legendary jazz pianist Barry Harris at the Be-bop Jazz Club in Rome that the French saxophonist David Sauzay met Walter Ricci: a mutual, musical love at first sight!

After a memorable jamming session they decided to work together on a project to pay tribute to Frank Sinatra, as the hundreth anniversary of his birth will be celebrated in 2015.

 

 

 

The musicians :

Walter Ricci is a 25 year-old Neapolitan who began singing as a child by imitating giants such as Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett...He learned the techniques of improvisation with the help of the piano and at the age of 14 he was already mature enough to play in the best Italian clubs with his quartet.

Since then concerts (meetings?), tours and recordings have come in quick succession...(a tribute to Cole Porter with Stefano di Battista, Lucas Santaniello at the Lincoln Centre in New York, alongside Mikaël Bublé...)

He is talented, passionate and inspires the admiration of all the musicians who have played with him.

He dreams of a European and international career and we share his dream!

 

David Sauzay is a saxophonist who was part of the "collectif Mu" adventure and who collaborated on recordings of Charles Aznavour and Kyle Eastwood. He is a sought-after sideman (40 records to his name) and also a leader of inventive projects, as his latest opus "Meeting Harold Mabern" with the famous American pianist, clearly shows. He is also the one who gave Walter his first opportunity to play in France two years ago.

 

Pierre Christophe ("best French jazz musician 2007") is on the piano. He studied at the Manhattan School in New York and with his mentor Jacky Byard. He is passionate about this project and his voicings wonderfully accentuate his melodies and his voice.

 

Michel Rosciglione is on the double bass. It's thanks to his father, the great Italian bassist Giorgio Rosciglione, that David and Walter met in Italy.

 

Bernd Reiter is an impressive Austrian drummer who recently moved to Paris. He brings swing, energy and precision...

 

Fabien Mary is a trumpet player who produces wonderful phrasing and tone. He is a long-standing friend of David Sauzay and guests on three pieces.

 

The songlist is composed of love songs which highlight different facets of the most famous crooner in the history of American music. It also includes a song "Anema e core", which gives a glimpse of the famous Neopolitan charm.

6.Fascinating rhythm

7.I love you for sentimental reasons
