Stefano Guzzetti. PIano, glockenspiel

This album is a collection of ideas, live tracks and forgotten music, and it has been intentionally assembled to celebrate my Japan tour in July 2018. A very limited CD edition of 50 copies has also been produced and it was strictly meant to be sold at concerts in Japan.

1, 2. Developed after some piano improvisations and recorded at home in June and July 2017.
3, 4. Recorded at Irma Toudjian’s house during the pre-production process for ‘Short Stories. Piano Book Volume Two’ in winter 2015.
5, 6 & 7. Played at Sonihouse, Nara, Japan on April 17th, 2017. Recorded by Keishiro Iwatani.
8,9. Recorded at home on April 20th 2016 after some jet lag issues and a week of insomniac nights.

Thank you. Irma Toudjian, Manpei Tsurubayashi, Anna Hasegawa and Nagahisa Tabana for friendship and hospitality, Keishiro Iwatani for assistance.

Produced and mastered by Stefano Guzzetti in June 2018
