In Certaldo, a heavenly place of the most real Tuscany, there is Il Castello, a hotel managed by a dear friend and great drummer with whom Salvatore and I had the pleasure to work on several occasions.
From the meeting between Alfred Kramer and an equally excellent character, Giulio Cesare Ricci, that all of you fonè followers know very well, was conceived a special project that saw Salvatore and me happily involved. Behind this project, there is the idea to record a musical event with the most possible fidelity without external “additions”.
What Giulio Cesare Ricci is doing for decades is known to you all, and it is an admirable research work for the most absolute fidelity reproduction of a sound event. To this end, as well as using his extraordinary passion and competence with microphones and recording equipment of esoteric value, “Signoricci” recorded this event in a unique place, the medieval cellar of the Il Castello hotel. Try to capture a sound event as truthful as possible is a very charming idea.
