This CD is a journey through what turns the voice into an instrument in constant search of more ways of expression: the melody, like in the best vocal jazz tradition; improvisation, as an extemporary creation and as a moment of communion with the other instruments; and writing, intended as a creative act to be shared and as a story about ones self to be told through the lyrics and their playing along with the music. Five out of the eight tracks in the CD are original lyrics and music compositions by Susanna Stivali (apart from "All the Joys" which takes the lyrics from an Emily Dickinson poem). The other three are re-adaptations of standard jazz (as in the 'jungle' version of "Lazy Afternoon"). The choice of the English language comes from the author's familiarity with it and its natural disposition for sounds and expressions. All pieces are totally detached from one another, moving from swing to "song-style" patterns, to more 'open' improvisation moments. There are also chances to enjoy the instrument players solo skills while they accompany the lyrics.
Apart from the skills of the three musicians, the most important factor is the band's harmony and the distinctive sound that results from it. Accompanying Susanna Stivali: Luca Mannutza at the piano, Marco Loddo at the double-bass, Nicola Angelucci at the drums, who have been playing together for about three years.
To make it all the more memorable there is the special appearance of Rosario Giuliani (with the kind authorisation of Dreyfus Jazz) at the sax, who plays in four of the five original pieces by Susanna Stivali. His presence is marked by his ability to interact with the vocalist and to interpret the original pieces, as well as by the way he manages to involve the listener into his solo performance.
