"Be yourself" is the third album as band leader. A new adventure born out of a friendship and collaboration with the well known Neapolitan "Ondanueve String Quartet". This project will be released in April 2023 and brought live in a UK tour that will combine his trio and string quartet in a series of unique performances that will explore and challenge the boundaries between Jazz, chamber Music, and sounds of the world.
"Be yourself" is a quest in Music into the meaning and feeling of being-ness that seems to underline all our experiences. It is an audio-visual project with many improvised sections and interplay between strings and piano, in the context of two structured instrumental suites. The project will also be presented live with video projections that interact with the Music and the improvisations.
