Giancarlo Mazzú, guitar; Luciano Troja, piano.
Following their selection of jazz standards on "Live at the Metropolitan, NYC" (SLAMCD 545), Mazzú and Troja return with a new selection of their original compositions on this their third SLAM CD. The programme of ten originals represents a sort of travelogue on the musicians' experiences playing together more than ten years, during which time they have actually produced eight CDs in duo, trio and quartet formats; a dedication to places, people and impressions that have inspired Giancarlo and Luciano over the years. The music shows a true love for the jazz tradition, the spontaneous composition, the song form and the blues; track 4, "Qui" also remembering their Southern Italy roots.
