You may have taken a step back, in the past, remembering when you were a child and all the ideas about what to do when you grow up. And you will watch your life like a movie, living once again all the beautiful moments, the painful ones, the struggles, the successes, thinking back to those who loved you, to those who disagreed with you, the affections, the upsets. That’s what happened to me time ago, while I was writing the songs of the album you hold in your hands. I had a moment when I thought about the complexity of the past, its weight, its annoying sense of duty.

Then, in a second, I had the intuition of how everything had taken place so quickly, everything had happened in a natural sequence – not always easy and linear – but natural, as if everything was written and it was already into my hands. And I thought that all this was “A Simple Story” in which to smile serenely, thinking back lightly to the human comedy, with a benevolent eye to the worlds and events fill our life everyday. “A Simple Story” is the last song – in order of time – that I wrote, and its simple vein, its melodic flow, pushed me in the choice of the title, the right one for the whole job.

Powered by six wonderful musicians who share with me a broad vision of Making Music, I explored the world of fusion with acoustic and electrical instruments. A work focusd on Music and Communication, because a composer expresses himself for a profound need, but essential is arriving to others, so that the strings of souls can resound together when the Music materializes as a powerful bridge between the differences, the divergences. And this, in spite of the objective difficulties, is a “Simple Story” that invests the pure feelings, the naked being, enjoying the respect for the other and looking for the common Path. I believe that in music the right path can only be found through the pure Listening.
