“I formed A World of Sound Quartet in 2013. In these last years or so the quartet has been playing live, in jazz clubs of the Milano area mainly, quite extensively, considering the difficult live jazz situation, and this led to the decision to bring the band in the studio again to record the second quartet’s cd. I wrote Minutes, or Trance Minutes, years ago for the Italian Instabile Orchestra, played and recorded the piece also with the Milano Civica Scuola di Jazz Big Band and my Brotherhood Creative Trance Music Ensemble; here, reduced to its essence, is a version for quartet . William Parker and Harry Miller are two compositions of mine obviously dedicated these two great bass players, while Aman is dedicated to Tiziano Terzani. God Rest You, Merry Gentlemen is a famous english Christmas traditional with an intriguing melody which I thought could be rended in some kind of “Aylerish” mood. As for the two Shorter’s pieces; Ju Ju is played straight, while we decided to rivisit Infant Eyes playing on the changes and structure of the piece, but in a more free and open rhythmic flow and intention” Daniele Cavallanti
