Impasse is the third album release for Andrea Rea under his own name. After countless concerts and collaborations he decided to somewhat change the musical direction of his trio. He was looking for music that fits this specific trio and he lets all his influences shine through with each song having a somewhat different character from the other. Rea has re-arranged “Speak No Evil” (Wayne Shorter) and “Rio de Majo” (Ivan Lins) in addition to the famous Italian song “Almeno tu nell ́universo” (Lauzi/Fabrizio) (Sorry for the mistake in the cover for the wrong composer of this track). He wanted to compose each song with a different attitude, but thanks to fantastic playing from Marcello and Daniele, they still have a single, uniform sound. Both were very active in the recording process to form this music into what you hear on this release. On the title “Impasse”, Andrea has not only dedicated this to his own life situation, but also to all other people that are in a dead end of life and need strength to change direction.
