A warm and expressive voice, echoes of the classiest swing and jazz songs: piano, bass and drums, a stunning brass section and a charming and seductive voice. That's Andrea Balducci, a Voice, and such a Voice! This single introduces the forthcoming album (available in September) by Andrea Balducci called "Bloom". These 2 tracks represent ideally the album's musical journey, from Soul, Rhythm'n'Blues, Funk and Jazz in a smooth and refined blend. "The Letter", a famous '60 hit, was inspired by Willie Hutch and Al Green's versions, but here we have the complexity of the black roots rhythm mixed with a vocal line more similar to European artists such as Jamie Cullum. "Big City" is a ¾ timing Jazz tune, arranged in the usual Schema style and reminding a bit of the live version by Cannonball Adderley sung by Ernie Andrews. Andrea has been playing southern France, Italian, Austrian, Dubai and New York's clubs for years, piling up experiences and shaping his voice around evergreen classics. Now he feels it's time to record some of this vast repertoire, and to do so he's chosen Schema Records. The recording session featured three finnish guys from the acclaimed Five Corners Quintet, we're talking about Teppo Mäkynen, Jukka Eskola and Timo Lassy who delivered great sounds and vibes. Andrea's live activity will start soon after the album release. Keep up to date, and don't miss him live!
