PRESS REVIEWS ABOUT “INFLUENCES”

... Un disco che risulta piacevole e allo stesso tempo interessante, attraversato da atmosfere vivaci ma anche dai momenti più intensi ed evocativi, dove si può ascoltare un'ottima fusione delle voci (Marco de Masi - Jazzitalia, dicembre 2007)

...i due musicisti riescono a mantenere viva la tensione grazie alla purezza del fraseggio tipicamente jazzistico, col ritmo sottostante costantemente implicato (Mario Calvitti - Chitarre, novembre 2007)

...Tiziano Zanotti e Alessio Alberghini sono due musicisti che hanno talento musicale da vendere. In “Influences” si fanno apprezzare per varie ragioni, ma prima fra tutte per il suono: corposo, presente, preciso ed intonato (Piero Quarta - Prove Aperte, October 2007)

...Entrambi bravissimi agli strumenti, ma pure, che è quel che più conta, molto ispirati in questa occasione (Vittorio lo Conte - All About Jazz Italia, ottobre 2007)

...una specie di gemma che brilla in un panorama musicale abbastanza privo di idee davvero innovative (Carlo Pulici - www.thevibes.net, settembre 2007)

….What's intriguing is the range of sources that runs the gamut from Bird to John Scofield... a solid effort (Robert Iannapollo - Cadence Magazine, settembre 2007)

...Influences is the work of a very special duo (www.jazzworldquest.com, Maggio 2007)

…Dieci piccole schegge, dieci piccoli lampi di genio creativo (Ivan Masciovecchio - Rockshock, maggio 2007)

…Un disco che pretende attenzione e ripaga con emozioni. Non capita spesso, quando succede approfittiamone (Lucio Mazzi - City, maggio 2007)

…I due pescano dal Real Book una decina di pezzi storici e li ripercorrono con sagacia e brio, brandendo gli strumenti con naturalezza e intensità (Stefano Solventi - www.sentireascoltare.com, aprile 2007)

His programmes are based on original methods he has personally developed and tested, which are used also by other colleague teachers. These instructional books are divided into practical and theoretical lessons. The purpose of the course is to eliminate any technical, theoretical or musical doubts in order to enable every musician to achieve the best results according to their individual talent. Main book used for the course of ELECTRIC BASS
Born as a manuscript far back in 1988 and periodically updated with the feedbacks received in years of teaching, Bassista Contemporaneo 1 (Echoes 206) is now available in a new edition. The complete course of electric bass includes 4 instructional methods useful to learn the technical foundations to play any kind of music, from rock to funk, from jazz to Latin. This volume 1 is composed of 25 progressive lessons dedicated to learning the techniques of the two hands and how to build accompaniment lines in the main genres of modern music, especially focusing on: chords, arpeggios, scales, sight reading and ear training. Includes a CD featuring a complete version and a minus one version of the tracks, for practice purpose. After completing this first book, the course goes on with Volumes 2, 3 e 4, where the student can develop his/her professional skills in terms of solo playing and interpretation of the main music genres.
