A trumpet, a guitar and a bass.

The absence of the battery immediately brings to mind the last Chet Baker, a chamber size, intimate and sensual. The music was “photographed” in the wonderful acoustics of the theater “Persius Flaccus” of Volterra, waiting for the bells of the five ceased, or that the thunder of a storm at the end of summer subsides.

A choice that has put the musicians in direct relation to their essence simple, highlighting the strength and fragility.

This recording technique has opened up a window to the future, we returned back decades, as often happens when you looking for something and find it necessary to look to the past.

— Enzo Pietropaoli

The result manages to combine a highly accurate and natural sound with human presence, lively and vivid musicians.

— Battista Lena

The impression is that you can expand with a magnifying glass the sound image to infinity, discovering each time new details that are always in focus.

— Fulvio Sigurtà

Press reviews

HRAudio.net

The Bill Evans jazz standard “Turn out the Stars” offers all three players a solid foundation for (identifiably) jazz soloing. The set concludes, aptly, with the Cole Porter song “All Through the Night”. The trio takes the tune at mid-tempo, driven by Pietropaoli’s propulsive bass playing.

La Notte was engineered, recorded and mastered by Fonè Records label owner Giulio Cesare Ricci with his classic Neumann microphone kit direct to DSD. The historic site of the Teatro Persio Flacco provides a warm ambience. Signor Ricci’s careful placement of microphones generates an astonishingly realistic stereo soundstage. On some of the tunes, guitarist Lena vocalizes very softly (and in tune). The first time I played the recording fairly loud, I thought one of my neighbors was singing along…

La notte – Pietropaoli, Lena, Sigurtà

Wonderful album, state of the art recording by Giulio Cesare Ricci (fonè).
