The Cd Manifesto announces the release of the album L'Amico Di Cordoba, the wonderful collaboration between three prominent musicians: the saxophonist Javier Girotto, the singer of Avion Travel Peppe Servillo and the pianist Natàlio Luis Mangalavite.
After years of collaborations on the stages, the three musicians present a project inspired by the tango of Piazzolla, Jobim, jazz and Italian songwriting. Cordoba's friend combines the South American soul with the Mediterranean one, in which the Latinity of the protagonists is the leitmotif of a fusion of styles and emotions.
"Sometimes it happens to be on the other side of the world and to unexpectedly meet something that belongs to us and that we may have forgotten."
This happened, it seems, to Girotto, Servillo and Mangalavite, especially when the two Argentinians recognized in this meeting a chance to return to their culture conducted without rhetoric, but playing the first hand the bet of writing 'new' songs . "Ancient" songs would seem viceversa for Servillo, who can thus approach classical landscapes of popular music without the risk of redundancy and the commonplace.
The program proposed by this multifaceted formation is inspired by the Italian and Argentine roots of its members and extends from Piazzolla to Jobim with significant original compositions of each. Buon dia, Before you, Cordoba's friend, Aria, La separation, Vuelvo al Sur, What's the point, En tres, Regina, Lullaby by GRA, Il gatto.
The original nucleus of this project is the album Colibrì recorded by the two Argentinians in 2003. The music of the Trio is ineluctably imbued with reminiscences of the personal and musical history of the three authors; the songs thus result in a "dual citizenship", Latin American and European, worlds and different cultural atmospheres that blend in a suggestive and evocative mix.
