Rough Line is Angelo Mastronardi’s third record as leader. The pianist from Puglia, also founder of
the label that released the album, GleAM, is accompanied by Rogers Anning on double bass and
Carmelo Miceli on drums. The record features eight tracks: six originals and new versions of the
timeless classics “All The Things You Are” and “Oleo”. The album opens with “All In My Hands”.
The rhythm, with a jazz rock flavor, supports the beautiful theme performed by the synth, effective
and ingenious. The sounds are beautiful and the track explodes during the virtuoso piano solo
