Scatozza, who has also lived in London for several years and worked with jazz, Paul Young and Tom Jones, has written all the music on "Travels". It is without exception very melodic and "easy" to like. It's a straight jazz feeling all the way, but both funk and fusion are clear inspirational sources. The giant DiCosimo is the most central soloist, and with his beautiful and soft tone he fits perfectly. The English alto saxophonist and modernist Trevor Watts are also in place, but in a slightly different role than what we are used to.
Giampaolo Scatozza is a nice acquaintance. It does not move a single brandstone, but it does not necessarily work every time. "Travels" are hot and "harmless" and played by talented musicians.
