about

A few minutes before the dawn, there is an instant where a soft dim light rends the horizon eastwards and the night prepares to share the heavens with the coming morning. In Italian this feeble glow is called “albore” and it also means the beginning of something.

"Albore" is a record about an initiation, a spiritual journey that drives the listener into an hypnotic and evocative world made of Yoruba polyrhythms, Middle Eastern impressions, spiritual Jazz drifts, Ethiopian groove vibes and Afrobeat-like brass sections. It is a mix of different sonic landscapes where the instruments of Volpe's Orchestra weave a texture of voices into a sort of magical realism. These 10 compositions pay tribute to John Lurie’s late work, the spiritual Jazz of Pharoah Sanders and the ethnomusical studies of Lloyd Miller.

Written and arranged by Manuel Volpe, the album is ably supported by an excellent production team made up of Massimiliano Moccia, Andrea Scardovi, Kelly Hibbert and Volpe himself under the fine supervision of Afro-Jazz-Fusion expert Andrea Benini from Mop Mop.
