Three one-take vibraphone tracks recorded by Alessandro Di Puccio eighteen years ago -comes in a very limited edition of only 100 copies. Very beautiful and serene. The tracks are a selection from eleven pieces that were originally created for a theatre piece called “Il silenzio è d’oro” (“Silence is golden”). After 18 years of being kept in a drawer in Di Puccio’s home, these previously unreleased works will finally see the light of day. Short and powerful, these tracks suddenly break the silence and reflect Di Puccio’s interest in evoking virtuous and tender emotions. “One Instrument Sessions - Alessandro Di Puccio” gives the listener a feeling of simultaneously being tenderly cradled and awakened. Playful and bright, the tracks reflect the joyful nature of the vibraphonist and composer who since 1986 has been experimenting and collaborating with many internationally renowned musicians. He has been the director of two jazz music schools and is currently the director of the Jazz Department of the Accademia Musicale di Firenze. Composed and produced by Alessandro Di Puccio. Mastered by Giuseppe Tillieci at Enisslab Studio, Rome. Original artwork by Alejandra García and Marco Ciceri.

By now electronics plays a fundamental role in musical productions all over the world - says Di Puccio - “forcing” many artists to a continuous, if not frenetic, search for means and forms of expression in line with the speed of contemporary evolution. Starting from these assumptions, Curved Lights lays its foundations on the interactivity between electronics and acoustic instruments.

'Settembre in Piazza della Passera' - Alessandro Di Puccio
The enthralling Mediterranean swing of Les Italiens for the first time at the Odeon in Florence, and for a good cause: Tuesday, February 7, the big-band founded by Alessandro di Puccio is the protagonist of a concert-event in favour of the Jane Goodall Institute.
Les Italiens, concert for the Jane Goodall Institute
Les Italiens, the ensemble that combines rhythms and colours of Zingaresque, popular and jazz, manouche, Jump and Twist derivation with Italian song, street music, French chansons and the vitriol of the Cetra Quartet captured together with their leader Alessandro di Puccio in Piazza della Passera by Rai Tre during a concert. 2009 is the year of VERDELUNA DANCING HALL, the new upcoming album of les Italiens scheduled for next spring; the sound world of jazz orchestras from dance relives in a sound between modernity and tradition; it is a story that resonates from the rooms of old nightclubs, halfway between irony, modernity, worn tuxedos, sequins still able to shine, love affairs and second-hand loves made of a near eroticism.
