More than ten years have passed since the release of “You’ve Changed”, an important milestone in Bosso’s career, the recording in which the Torinese trumpeter started disclosing more of himself, bringing to light his musical passions as well as his versatile and poetic nature. He had entrusted the arrangements to Paolo Silvestri, a maestro in the art of writing, with whom Bosso subsequently developed a steadfast musical partnership with ongoing projects such as “Duke”, their tribute to Ellington, and more recently “The Champ”, dedicated to Dizzy Gillespie.
Yet “You’ve Changed” continues to be a topical reference which is revived periodically: Bosso now and again feels the urge to go back on stage to tell his love for song, without distinction of genre or period, in an eclectic programme featuring songs as various as “Senza Fine”, “You’ve Changed”, “Azzurro”, “Georgia On My Mind”, “Body and Soul”, “The Shadow of Your Smile”, “Fragile”, “Nuovo Cinema Paradiso”…
To accompany the sumptuous voice of Bosso’s trumpet, his inveterate Quartet and the magic of Paolo Silvestri’s String Ensemble.
