Paolo Fresu plays David Bowie. And this would already be enough to "make the news". He does it in the company of a stellar cast with Petra Magoni, Filippo Vignato, Francesco Diodati, Francesco Ponticelli, Christian Meyer: the news is "front page".
“As soon as this project was proposed to me”, says Paolo Fresu, “I felt honored and excited. I decided to put together a unique band, specially created, with great eclectic musicians from different backgrounds, even far from jazz. I believe this is great value. Getting close to David Bowie's music is a great thrill and also an extraordinary opportunity for all of us ”.
Fresu and associates got their hands on about thirty pieces, including Life on Mars, This Is Not America, Warszawa, When I Live My Dreams. Each member of the band gave their own contribution in the arrangements, giving greater variety and dynamism to the project.
Petra Magoni, as a vocalist, enjoys the greatest freedom, but the concert still focuses on teamwork. Returning to Fresu's words: “Bowie is an immortal author who has always been close to jazz. We will try to have the utmost respect for his art but also to be proactive, throwing a new look at these songs ".
