Giovanni VENOSTA
Pane E Tulipani

CAM CAM 498300-2 [33:06]

This sweet story of friendship takes place in Italy, with an important excursion to Venice where the central character rediscovers her love of accordion playing. That might well have been the earliest 1 line pitch Venosta was given, and should quickly paint a picture for you as to what he came up with.

The intimacy and geography would almost be sold out without: acoustic guitar, viola, mandolin, and naturally the accordion. Even the sourced tracks accord to the feel-good formula. There's a little Rossini and an "Eclisse Twist" from G. Fusco for instance.

If only for the slinky brushed drums of the opening "Bread & Tulips Shuffle" this is an album worth opening a bottle of red wine to.
