The Definition of Insanity: When you do the same thing over and over and expect different results!
This Project is a new side of Monaco's music that explores his latest passions with an incredible band! You'll hear meticulous playing from drummer Tony McClung and guitarist Derek DiCenzo - the chemistry from playing together often is obvious! This is a real band that plays together and knows each others' musical personalities!
You'll hear it all: Funk and Jams, Latin standards, Italian and Vocal Classics...
In addition to Tony playing the accordion on an Italian traditional vocal, 'Non Ti Scordare Di Me' (dedicated to his Mother), he takes it out further by recording the piano for the first time on a timeless vocal 'A Song For You'!
Asako Monaco plays the piano on 'Never Let Me Go' a vocal dedicated to Tony's friend, Roy Hargrove, who recently passed away (Hargrove and Monaco loved playing this song together). ...and don't miss 'Awa Athar', a Monaco original composition based on the Awa Athar Turkish scale!
'With this project I wanted to present music that I love and do it in a way I love to do it without an agenda...I put my heart into it, a bit of creativity, and lots of hours behind the board. It was a lot of work, but I'm proud of myself.'
