Now it's my turn

“I always wanted to release a solo album, an instrumental bass oriented record that truly rapresents me, and gives a detailed image of my playing style in all its facets. From the start i realized that the challenge was to combine my role of band leader of the project, with my deepest natural musical predisposition, to be a sideman. Luckily, i menaged to reach a good balance between this two attitudes with the first tune i wrote: the title track of the album “NOW IT’S MY TURN”.

From then on i began writing new tunes for the record. I tried to focus from the start on the musicians i would have liked to play on my tunes, so i had a clear idea of the sound i was after as i was creating my music, hence writing in a very specific direction. This led me to involve some of my all time music idols, i was so lucky to feature VINNIE COLAIUTA and SIMON PHILLIPS on drums, two of my biggest influences as i was growing up, MIKE STERN and MICHAEL LANDAU play guitar on the album , both of them have had a huge impact on my composing style, i was also able to involve RICHARD BONA , a living legend and a true ispiration, as a bass player and composer and also as human being. I was determined to play together with the guests i had in mind, but the difficulties and problems i encountered in scheduling the recordings, have kept delaying the release of my work since the very beginning.

Make this record took a long time , but i was able to grow as a player, sharing my project and musical choices, but i’m sure that the energy and the enthusiasm come across from the music, i also involved some of the greatest italian players, and i called each of them for a specific quality.

The album has been mixed by Roberto Rosu, that has been by my side since the beginning and mastered by GREG CALBI.

This album rapresents me, it’s a true picture of who i am now as a musician, i’m really happy to share it with you, and i sincerely hope it will comunicate the energy the joy the enthusiasm, the strength with which it was recorded”
