Fausto was impressed and fascinated by the sound of Scott Hamilton's sax recorded in the old winery of the Semifonte Palace in Semifonte at Certaldo Alto and from there he had the desire to record a new guitar disc. Julius Caesar had asked Fausto to carry all he normally used for a concert, his amplification system to spread the sound and "all his cazzabubboli," as they jokingly called each other.
Julius Caesar had put Fausto with his guitar at the point of the acoustically optimum cellar by tuning the amplification system with the space.
He had positioned the legendary Neumann microphones as if he was recording in acoustic, engraving what we listened to, the sound of the cellar.
The result was fascinating, intimate, unique.
Fausto played expressing his art and his soul in freedom. A magical atmosphere ... ... on a journey, as he called it. The title of the Taxidi album came out while we were from Red Ronnie at Roxy Bar, translated the word in Greek and here's the title. Fausto liked very much.
The 2 days of recording were really a trip to us that we were there to listen to and fix that moment, trying to affect all the deep emotions that came from his music and his guitar 'The Bloody'. She played her Suites thinking about the duration of the vinyl. "Vinyl only" he said.
I had been asked to warn him when we were around 18 'of music (one side of the vinyl contains about 20') but he was so tense that in a suite he did not really see my reports and I had to get so close to the microphones if you feel my breath, of course, in the engraving.
The suites are take full, jet-cast, loaded with pathos and poetry.
How many emotions, how much beauty .... Taxidi, a trip along with Fausto Mesolella.

The story of fonè
In the context of classical and jazz music market, fonè proposes three decades of recordings using advanced techniques, aimed at the recovery of the original musical atmospheres.
Each new recording is the result of a passionate encounter between art and the art of execution and aims to recreate and reproduce the same spirit with which the works of the past have been performed. One basic feature that makes the difference between fonè and others, is the recording of musical works in natural places and original, constant production that leads to choose from time to time historically more space? Suitable for: church, theater, villa, living room ...
All this is done by retrieving a simple incision that does not do violence to the music: all the equipment is in high definition. Using pairs of valves Neumann microphones in the years 1947 and 1949 (U47, U48 and M49) using techniques very natural timbre bimicrofoniche field effect. These microphones have an important story: they are the microphones used to record the Beatles at Abbey Road Studio and RCA for the "Living Stereo."
