“Blue” is the color of feeling, of night, of mystery. A color that gives the notes something magical, making them edgy and fascinating, calls of an ancestral physicality, question marks of our existence. “Blue” is the color that permeates the original 12 tracks of this album, where Jazz and Blues meet with elegance in that subtle border area between the complexity of one and the simplicity of the other. A multifaceted journey in various nuances of “bluesy” playing, which over the decades has combined the style of many musicians such as Oscar Peterson, Horace Silver, Miles Davis, Chet Baker, Stevie Wonder. All this, according to the melodic and refined taste of Andrea Pagani, composer and pianist with an innate ability to give the notes that mysterious and nocturnal color: the “Blue”, precisely.
