CD Numbered Edition

The alto and soprano saxophonist Paolo Recchia, for the fifth release signed by the newly formed Birdbox Records label, presents himself with a quartet of superlative musicians now recognized by the press and the jazz public: the pianist Luca Mannutza, the double bassist Giuseppe Romagnoli and the drummer Nicola Angelucci."Imaginary place" welcomes the listener into an imaginary place, an imaginative space where the musical ideas of the band members intertwine and create a new common ground, combining traditional jazz with contemporary elements in a personal synthesis.

It's a generous live album with at its core a deep desire for mutual respect and shared love for this music. The work consists of original material and standards from the jazz tradition. Some of these compositions belong to musicians who had a direct influence on Paolo Recchia's playing and are a source of inspiration in terms of harmony, melody and rhythm.

I would like to express my deepest gratitude and sincere thanks to
- my wife Arianna for being at my side for the creation of this work
- to the incredible generosity and artistry of the musicians who joined me in this project
- to the splendid audio and video work of director and sound engineer Lorenzo Vella of Birdbox Records.
