Have a look at this wonderful song I just transcribed by Chet Baker.

And it is in Italian!!

Hi everyone,
I am starting a process of publishing some posts that will go through my music career. One tune, one story and one album every week.
To start off this journey, I have to commence from the very beginning: 'Colti con le mani nel bop' written in 1994 is the track that opens my very first album as a soloist: Tornando a casa.
Companions on this trip were a very young, but already robust player, Stefano Bollani, and a great rhythm section with Nicola Vernuccio on double bass and Andrea Melani on drums.
This tune was an attempt to explore the modern hard-bop language, with superimposed harmony, chromatic lines and modern arrangement techniques using counterpoint.
At that time (I was 21) I was still a Classical Composition student at the Florence Conservatorium, so still deep involved with counterpoint, fugues and form experimentation.
I was offered full funding to produce this recording. I was so undecided whether take the opportunity or drop the offer, but then many friends encouraged me to do it.
My mentor at the time, the great saxophone player Maurizio Giammarco said to me: 'you will never listen back to your early recordings, you will hate them one day'. He was true! I cannot listen to this recording anymore, but I don't regret any single note.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed recording it.
