Album Remarks & Appraisals:
This release is the fourth album in the ten-part series "Songs inspired by wandering the globe," a series based on Mike del Ferro's worldwide travels. Neapolitan songs, particularly arias by Puccini and Verdi are meshed together with jazz, blues, and Afro-Cuban rhythms to create a truly unique soundscape. Pianist Mike del Ferro is an internationally renowned artist. He has appeared in 116 countries across the globe, with performances varying from solo recitals to contemporary crossovers. Ferro is joined here by guest singer, US born Claron McFadden. Her highly distinctive voice allows her to flow effortlessly between classical and jazz, opera and concert, and traditional and modern repertoire.
