Lauded Italian jazz guitar virtuoso and music producer/songwriter Fabrizio Sotti will release his stunning new album Right Now on May 14, 2013, via Sotti Entertainment, Inc. Mixing his jazz and pop sensibilities for the first time as a recording artist, Fabrizio has assembled an exciting and unexpected list of guests on his latest effort, which features original songs and timeless covers of popular tunes. PRESS HERE to listen to “The Wall” featuring Ice T, M-1 of Dead Prez and Res.
Joining Fabrizio is R&B powerhouse Melanie Fiona, reggae superstar Shaggy, hip-hop icons Ice T and M-1 of Dead Prez, alt-soul singer Res, European pop legend Zucchero, acclaimed composer/multi-instrumentalist/producer Mino Cinélu, Chilean jazz vocalist Claudia Acuña, soul singer Alegbra Blessett and rising Swedish star Isabella Lundgren. Songs that have both personally and musically inspired Fabrizio have been re-worked into mesmerizing jazz-pop gems, including Pink Floyd’s “The Wall,” Jimi Hendrix’s “The Wind Cries Mary,” Bob Marley’s “Waitin’ In Vain,” U2’s “One” and Cesária Évora’s “Fidjo Maguado.” The album’s cohesive sound stems from the band made up of Fabrizio on electric, acoustic, classical and nylon string guitars, Tony Grey on bass and Mino Cinélu on drums/percussion.
Sparked by the idea of “right now,” Fabrizio's ever-bubbling creativity led him to begin working on an album with voices, instrumentation and song choices that would eloquently evoke the joy of contentedness and living in the moment. He invited some of his favorite contemporary artists to join on his newly written songs and interpret popular songs that hold deep meaning for him. For the first time in his own music, Fabrizio fused this pop-leaning element with his acclaimed jazz guitar playing. It became at once a nod to his personal journey and a step forward in his artistic adventures. By drawing from all corners of his personal memories and his more than two-decade genre-spanning career as a jazz guitarist and producer for everyone from Jennifer Lopez to Cassandra Wilson to Q-Tip to K’Naan, Fabrizio's creative expression has blossomed. The result is a rich and authentic album that welcomes music fans of all genres to come along for the ride.
