Alessandro Magnanini - Someway Still I Do (2009)

This is the debut album by Alessandro Magnanini which is the songwriter of the most successful songs This Is What You Are and No Mercy For Me appeared on the album "Handful of Soul" by Mario Biondi.....The main sources of inspiration are the great adult pop productions of the past, where the melodies prominently easy listing are here filtered through a jazz approach and a more cultured language. The melodies are identified with the arrangements by excellent artists such as Claus Ogerman, referring in particularly to those ones produced for the performances of Astrud Gilberto, the orchestral atmospheres proper to the Shirley Bassey’s repertory, and the “playful” evocative ability of Henry Mancini.
With the participation of three dreamy voices by Liam McKahey (Cousteau), Jenny B, Stefania Rava and Renata Tosi this album just includes original versions of songs in order to create an imaginary soundtrack.
