buy now

The Songbook Volume One concludes the project started in 2011 with the Volume Two. The two albums include 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.
