|Massimo's second album it's been recorded live in the studio.
It features John Swana on E.V.I. and Trumpet ( John Scofield, Mingus Big Band, Chris Potter and a CrissCross recording artist), Jim Ridl on Acoustic & Electric Piano (Pat Martino, Dave Liebman, and leader of his own projects), Darryl Hall on Acoustic & Electric Bass(winner of the Thelonius Monk International Bass Competition in 1995, Gerry Allen Trio, Diane Reeves).
Also vocalist Vania Taylor on one cut.
There are 3 tunes played by the acoustic trio setting, and 3 tunes done by the electric trio.
The other 4 tunes are played in a quartet setting featuring the E.V.I.
The most intense songs are: Confusion by Darryl Hall (the melody is in 9/4), Where The World Ends by Massimo (check out John's solo on E.V.I.), Nowhere In Sight by Darryl Hall (Funk/Fusion), Urban Serenade Pt.1. by Darryl Hall.
Track 3, Where Space & Time Begin by Massimo, has a very mysterious and haunting melody. The tune at first seems like a ballad, but it builds up in intensity to a drum solo.
Angel world, And Yet There Is Snow & The Light Keeper all by Massimo, have a Latin flavor with a hint of Fusion.
Urban Serenade Pt.2 by Darryl Hall is a ballad with some vocals, but it gets funkier later on.
Last, A Touch You Wont Feel by Massimo, is a 3/4 jazz piece which
features Swana on Trumpet.
Very raw sounding project. A lot of interactive improvisation.
If you need to be stimulated rather then play it safe, than this one is for you.
