"OPTICS" Inner Circle Music 2014
Alice Ricciardi vocals Pietro Lussu piano/fender rhodes Enrico Bracco guitar Dario Deidda bass Marco Valeri drums
Jazz singer and composer Alice Ricciardi, will release her new album OPTICS, and her first, on the american label Inner Circle Music led by Greg Osby, this November.
OPTICS perfectly showcases Alice’s versatility and understated elegance of her sound. It provides ample proof that she is one of the jazz world's most diverse and distinctly unique singer. While approaching the classic compositions and original material she doesn't fall into the typical jazz clichés: flamboyant vocal gestures, and over-sentimentality. Instead, she choses to treat these songs simply, letting the songs speak with minimal, contemporary arrangements.
Joining Alice Ricciardi on this intimate and richly melodic collection are some of the most outstanding and charismatic italian musicians; the impressive pianist and composer Pietro Lussu, guitarist and composer Enrico Bracco, worldwide renewed bassist Dario Deidda and drummer Marco Valeri.
