Pietro Tonolo, Giancarlo Bianchetti

Songs We Like features the Jazz Duo of Pietro Tonolo (Tenor Sax, Soprano Sax, Flute, Flutax) and Giancarlo Bianchetti (Guitar).

The musical program from the Tonolo & Biancheti Duo is very original. It includes Slow Hot Wind by Henry Mancini, Show Type Tune by Bill Evans, Get Out Of Town by Cole Porter, I Should Care by  Axel Stordahl, Paul Weston and Sammy Cahn, Comrade Conrad by Bill Evans, Chovendo Na Roseira by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Your Story by Bill Evans, Utah by Steve Lacy, and Goodbye by Gordon Jenkins.

The sounds of the instruments: tenor and soprano saxophone, flute, flutax, and guitar - go perfectly with the acoustics of the recording venue and are fully enhanced by the natural sound.

This album is part of the recording project that Giulio Cesare Ricci has been producing for several years at the ancient cellar of the Palazzo di Scoto di Semifonte in Certaldo Alto (FI). The recording was created with the legendary Neumann Valve (Tube) microphones, DSD stereo recording on the Merging Technologies Pyramix Recorder using dCS A/D and D/A converters.

No editing was done on this album. All the tracks on this record are heard as they were performed.

Bill Evans

Evans was born in Plainfield, New Jersey and attended Southeastern Louisiana University. After a period in the Army, he returned to New York in 1955 and began working and recording with Tony Scott and George Russell. His subtly swinging, lucidly constructed solos with these leaders quickly attracted attention, and provided Evans with an opportunity to begin recording under his own name; but he was modest regarding his gifts, and for a time was reluctant to push himself into the limelight. All this changed after he spent several months during 1958 in Miles Davis's band, where he played alongside John Coltrane and Cannonball Adderley as well as the trumpeter and became a central figure in Davis's shift to modal improvisation.

The period with Davis allowed Evans to organize his own trio, which featured bassist Scott LaFaro and drummer Paul Motian by the end of 1959. These three players developed a new and more interactive approach to trio playing, one in which all instruments carried melodic responsibilities and functioned as equal voices. LaFaro's tragic death in a July 1961 highway accident ended the existence of this seminal unit; but not before it had recorded four albums, two in the studio and two at a Village Vanguard performance shortly before the bassist's death, that influenced several generations of pianists, bassists, and drummers.
