about

The Songbook Volume One concludes the project started in 2011 with the Volume Two. The two albums include tunes written from 1997 to the present day by Sardinia-born composer and bassist Sebastiano Dessanay.

All of the songs present in this recording are very much informed by jazz tunes, and they pay hommage to many jazz composers whose style one can subtly hear between the lines.

A strong sense of melody is always present and Sebastiano’s great bass sound is complemented by the presence of fine guitarist Gianluca Corona, skilled rummer Alessandro Garau and Scottish talent Rachael Cohen on saxophone.
