  1. Review by Ferruccio Spinetti Double bass
    starstarstarstarstar

    I was lucky enough to meet Alessandro almost 20 years ago. He supervised many of my works, Avion Travel, Musica Nuda and the recording and mixing process of the two InventaRio albums.

    The second cd "InventaRio Incontra Ivan Lins" also earned us a nomination for the 2014 Latin Grammy in the MPB category.

    Alessandro's passion and sensitivity are his main characteristics and thanks to his knowledge of various musical genres, I was able to experience what it means to give added value to a composition.

    Ho avuto la fortuna di conoscere Alessandro quasi 20 anni fa. Ha seguito tanti miei lavori, dagli avion travel a musica nuda, fino alla registrazione e missaggio dei due cd col progetto InventaRio. il secondo cd "inventario Incontra Ivan Lins" ci e' valso anche una nomination ai Latin Grammy del 2014 nella categoria MPB. La passione e la sensibilita' di Alessandro sono le sue caratteristiche principali. Dal Jazz al Pop, ma anche in contesti di musica classica, ho avuto modo di provare in prima persona cosa vuol dire dare un valore aggiunto ad una composizione grazie alla sua professionalita'.

    I have worked with Alessandro along with my band, Red Light Skyscraper, on many projects, including our first album, Still the Echo (2017), and the singles Matisse and 4 AM. Thanks to his enormous experience, the mixes have always been extremely consistent with the sound we we were looking for and, at the same time, characterised by his style.
