Likewise is another recording Fone made for the concerts of the Fonè Piaggio Music Festival 2021 edition. It was made at the Piaggio Auditorium located inside the famous Pontedera Museum, the place where Piaggio was born and where it still continues to produce today. Inside the Museum every year the public from all over the world can admire the Piaggio production made over the years, all the Vespa and Ape models, all the Aprilia, Gilera and Moto Guzzi motorcycles that have won national and international awards over time.
The album features Julian Mazzariello on piano and Enzo Pietropaoli bass. These two great jazzmen have played and recorded many albums together, but it is the first time that they have come together as a duo.
Honestly, it is simplistic to call them a duo because in each piece they interpreted they seemed to be a single instrument. The artists alternated pieces from the international repertoire; to underline Easy To Love (Cole Porter), I Loves You Porgy (George Gershwin) and two songs by Mazzariello and Pietropaoli themselves.
Their interpretation and the dialogue that each time “intertwined” between the two instruments was truly magical, a total timbre, musical and interpretative fusion… a masterpiece! The natural sound fonè has fully exploited all the sounds of the two instruments An album not to be missed!

Just amazing. Strangely I put off downloading this album because the samples from the webpage to my Mac sounded particularly unpleasant, relative to others on the site.
I decided to try it and wow, just amazing. It is just perfect. The sound, the execution, the repertoire, fantastic on every level.
