  • The 88th Academy Awards will be remembered in Italy as the year that Maestro Morricone won the coveted statuette for Best Original Score for Quentin Tarantino's film The Hateful Eight. The Maestro received a heartfelt standing ovation after his name was pronounced by Quincy Jones and Pharrell. He was led to the stage by his son Giovanni and, in Italian, he thanked the other nominees, singling out the great John Williams, and explained that “there is no great music without a great film that inspires it. I thank Quentin Tarantino for choosing me and the great team that made this extraordinary film.”

  • Mr Starkey is blowing out 75 candles this Tuesday 7th July. As the least attractive and ingenious, yet possibly the most likeable Beatle, the mischievous Ringo Starr has had an extraordinarily innovative and influential role among several generations of ‘drummers’.
  • If we were to ask someone who knew even just a little bit of jazz what instrument he most associated the genre with, which instrument made jazz stand out from other musical genres, he or she would almost inevitably say the saxophone or trumpet. Wind instruments. Extensions of the voice, practically, extensions of the most direct, human form of communication. Breath externalizes our soul, gives us our identity, sets us apart. It begs the question: why is jazz generally associated with the emission of air from our lungs?
  • Apparently the first form of verbal communication between human beings closely approximated what we might define as a “song,” i.e., the verbal utterance of sounds bound together by a communicative, or emotional, structure. In short, our ancestors talked to one another by using sounds formed by a logic dictated by their feelings or needs at a given time. It’s no coincidence that our voice is known as the “first instrument,” the first means of emitting sounds that were elaborate and pleasing (or displeasing, depending on the case).
  • We went, together with Roberto Mancinelli, to visit Virginio during a co-writing session in a New York studio. The young singer a n d songwriter is attending a writing camp together with authors like Jesse Harris, Andy Maervel, Dimitri Elrrich. "Roberto has managed to involve authors who have put their experience at our disposal, and the end result was a harmonious collaboration" the artist says.
