THE FOLLOWING TEXT IS AN INTRODUCTION MADE BY THE LABEL ATELIER SAWANO *automatic google translation from Japanese

To the gods, a new soul. Is this standard? This is the standard! ALESSANDRO GALATI’s beautifully created profound “standard song book”. There are two points that Sawano studio has always adhered to when planning and producing works. It is a piano trio as a format and the material is a standard number. Wanting to deliver jazz music to many people, if it is possible to be part of life as well as comfort…as this is the theme of the label, is not it inevitable? By pursuing the most accepted form with the most accepted form, we realize familiarity and high quality. There is also a pride that he has offered a broad and deep world. An album that can be said to be the ultimate for Sawano is born here. The main character is Alessandro Galati.

I’m daring to put a “shake” called all-song standard number to Galati, which I have been dedicated to being thoroughly original. I can not move the framework, but everything inside it depends on him. As a result, what was created was a standard song book that I have never heard before. The profound sounding produced by a carefully chosen series of sounds revives the melody that should have been known to a
different one. That approach may be familiar to somewhere where Glenn Gould created a new Bach. Besides, there are not too many difficulties to get there.

Let me just taste this music so as to immerse himself in the lake of far northernmost which reflects the full galaxy. …it’s beautiful…. Indeed, the single point of reach is here.
