Album Title: Songbook Volume Two Artist: Sebastiano Dessanay Catalogue no: F-IRECD54 Date of Release: 02/04/2012 Price: 9.99 GBP
The Songbook is a collection of selected tunes written from 1997 to the present day by Sardinia-born composer and bassist Sebastiano Dessanay. All of the songs present in this recording are very much informed by jazz tunes, and they pay hommage to many jazz composers whose style one can subtly hear between the lines. A strong sense of melody is always present and Sebastiano’s great bass sound is complemented by the presence of fine pianist Alessandro Di Liberto, solid drummer Pierpaolo Frailis and raising star Fulvio Sigurtà on flugel-horn as guest on three tracks.
Sebastiano Dessanay: double bass
Alessandro Di Liberto: piano
Pierpaolo Frailis: drums
Fulvio Sigurtà trumpet/flugelhorn on tracks 2,4,8.
