I Can See Home from Here will be released on october 9 2019 on Workin' Label Records (I.R.D. distribution). In his debut album, bassist and composer Luca Alemanno explores shifting conceptions of home. Originally from Alessano Italy, Alemanno currently resides in Brooklyn, New York following two years in Los Angeles, three years in Rome, and travels to countless cities and countries. Navigating between continents and cultures, Alemanno’s music explores the meaning of home, whether it is a place, a feeling, an object or a person. In reflecting on his encounters with the familiar and unknown, Alemanno raises questions around cultural identity, community and independence. I Can See Home From Here features seven original compositions brought to life by a sextet of musicians from around the world, including alto saxophonist Miguel Zenon (Puerto Rico), trombonist Jon Hatamiya (California), vibraphonist Simon Moullier (France), pianist Isaac Wilson (California) and drummer Jongkuk Kim (South Korea). The record culminates with Alemanno’s solo bass interpretation of Hoagy Carmichael’s “Stardust.” In sharing his process of redefining home, Alemanno hopes to evoke and inspire introspection among listeners in their travels around the globe and within themselves.
