The years I spent cramming a great variety of musical styles, led me to realiste
that music can be expressed differently and implies diverse appreciation and
I bilieve that everything is bestowed of a double meaning,or more
precisely of a twofold aspects. Life itself is double- sided. In this respect,
is meant to refer to a combination of two kinds of sounds stored up
in my second album, one being sheer acoustic, the other being more aggressive, or eletric.
Obviously, that is brought about from a mixture of genres blended
together, and influences from jazz to pop and classical music Let me explain why
I choose The Eternal Triangle,
The Second Time Around
as the three
notable tracks of the album.

Le Due Elle, is a sort of

great guitarists, Jim Hall and John Scofield.
is a ¾ ballad made up of a
three-bit melodic lines, each of them being independent from the others in tune.
My Red Passion
comes from my knack for the flavour of red wine, something I am
absolutely passionate about.
The opening and closing tracks of the CD are two
instrumental songs for guitar I truly appreciate.
is a pretty simple
prelude based on an uplifting tune. The colour blue brings to my mind something
stylish or magnificent but it also stands for wisdom; it is the colour of the
sky and night, my favourite colour.
is a melancholic ballad and contais
the spirit of this "label", which is one of its two facets.
