VIAGGIANDO is Rosario Bonaccorso’s latest CD, produced by Jando Music and Via Veneto Jazz. The innate strength and vigour of Rosario’s melodic writing, together with the striking form structure on which he has been working for years, make him widely regarded as one of the most influential and innovative double bass players. "VIAGGIANDO ", recorded with his new quartet, consists of 14 original compositions that propel listeners head-long on an incredible journey, subtly shifting from one continent to another, while drifting through emotions linked by the common thread of the “voyage”: an inspirational trigger that has always played a key role in the musical adventures of the double-bassist. A deep introspection pervades Rosario Bonaccorso’s music, portraying a soul-searching autobiography that predominantly reveals his passions and inspirations - distant journeys into unknown lands, nature...the sea itself, love and contrasting emotions - that are the true heart of the album. There are also a few tracks where the musician sings for the first time: Storto, My Faith, Mon Frere ...a passion for singing, which, over the years, has made him recognizable thanks to his voice being perfectly and expressively symbiotic with his instrument. Once again, he has chosen his travelling companions with acute sensitivity and awareness, to achieve an end result that is true to his inspiration - effective and beguiling. At his side, Fabrizio Bosso sustains the creative flow, as he intuitively chisels evocative melodic fragments with his trumpet, while Argentinian saxophonist Javier Girotto and Brazilian guitarist Roberto Taufic blend in seamlessly into the fabric, further flavouring this journey with the cultural sensitivity deriving from their homelands. A voyage that spans over the Mediterranean, America’s Jazz, Brazil, Argentina ... essential and pure ingredients that, under the guidance of Rosario Bonaccorso, give birth to a kaleidoscopic of emotions that only music can convey.
