I have returned from Roma, and I’m now back to my few last weeks of work at the Karelia UAS. I would like to thank the people at SaintLouis CollegeofMusic for having me there : Marzia Bagli, Maeve Rogers, Stefano Mastruzzi (among others), and all the great teachers I had a chance to meet/work with! I might not remember now everyone, so please don’t get annoyed... Luca Bulgarelli, Maurizio Giammarco, Mauro Massei, Antonio Solimene (Vittorio Solimene please send regards..), Natalio Luis Mangalavite, Vincenzo Presta, and of course ’Giovannino’ Giovanni Candia and my (new) friends from Georgia, Reso Kiknadze and Mako Gviniashvili! Also thanks to all the students for their enthusiasism and support!
Thanks also for these great musicians for great fun on stage, Francesco Puglisi Marco Valeri, Alessandro D'Anna, Daniele Sorrentino, Benito Gonzalez Gerardina Tesauro
and the fantastic Jazz Club Latina and Giorgio Raponi Mariana Badeskuand of course Gregory’s Jazz Club.
Also many thanks for the great work by Clive Simpson for mixing and Gregory Burk for playing the missing piano tracks for my next album!
Looking forward to getting back there already!
Much love to all!
