"I'm highly satisfied with the very hard work done over the years. I'm planning more sessions with Lee Konitz, including Nino Rota's music, new originals by Lee, Burt Bacharach, each of them quartets with pianists Paolo Birro, Piero Pratesi, Antonio Zambrini and Alessandro Lanzoni. So far, I've done over 40 records with Lee, over 30 with Phil, around 40 with Franco D'Andrea, 64 with Renato Sellani. It's been a privilege to work with all of them."
The producer is also expanding his musical horizons. "I've launched a 'Revelation' series that is dedicated to new discoveries. It started off with the Bill Evans-influenced pianist Alessandro Lanzoni. But I'm also looking for international talent, both old and new, among them guitarist Lew Woodall [a 65-year-old Virginia resident], Canadian pianist Miles Black, Brazilian guitarist/vocalist Rogerio Tavares and many more."
