The duo Musica Nuda, made up of Petra Magoni and Ferruccio Spinetti, is back on the international music scene. After the success of Little Wonder, Magoni and Spinetti return with an album composed of unpublished songs and sung for the first time in Italian.
This Italian duo's mission is as simple as it is bold: to make music with the bare necessities -- a stunning voice and a double bass -- free to trace any music back to its core. They have no boundaries, fusing bits of jazz, songwriting, rock, punk, and classical music, using the art of silence as well as sound, underlining the value of a lyric, a story, the meaning of every song whether dramatic, funny, energetic, sarcastic or romantic.
Their eleventh album, Leggera, is an accomplished and mature expression of their artistry and evidence of their continued openness to collaboration. They are joined both in composition and performance by such musicians as Peppe Servile, Faust Mesolella, Luigi Salerno, Kaballà and Tony Canto.
"Leggera" - "easy, easy", that's the title of the new album of the Italian jazz duo Musica Nuda - that seems to be in contradiction to the portrayal of singer Petra Magoni and contrabassist Ferruccio Spinetti on the cover the plate in heavy knight armor. But a certain sense for the ironic and contradictory characterizes the original music of the two anyway. Alone the cast, which is reduced only to double bass and voice, floats between the looseness of the filigree sound on the one hand and the difficulty and technical claim of the arrangements on the other hand.
On "Leggera", their first all-Italian-language album, Magoni and Spinetti break up the proven line-up again and again - the filigree duo sound is expanded and expanded by skilfully used overdubbing, and the unconventional pop arrangements are taken to a new level. It becomes clear that the humorous and cleverly reduced to the essentials and expressive strongest interpretations of Musica Nuda are not due to the plight of the small cast, but have become in the thirteen years since the founding of the duo for a very own and highly intentionally pursued style.
This style finds its material on "Leggera" among the Italian singer-songwriters, the "Cantautores" of the present, such as Tony Canto, Peppe Servillo, Francescu Du Gesu, Alberto Zeppieri or Bruno Lauzi. With a delicate voice and a groovy contrabass Musica Nuda give the songs a jazzy touch, but without ever losing themselves in a technical stand-out. The two virtuosos of this time are also supported by numerous guest musicians: the guitarist Fausto Mesolella, who died in the spring of this year, lets his fingers dance over the strings on two tracks. Songwriter Tony Canto is honored in the title track of the record (which he also wrote himself ), Petra Magoni's daughter Frida Bollani Magoni (her father is the pianist Stefano Bollani) sings a duet with her mother.
Originally produced by Warner, the album was originally recorded and mixed in 2016 by Christian Lindemann and Edoardo Magoni. That this good work must have been done, you can tell already from the fact that Fone boss Giulio Cesare Ricci the tapes were good enough to come in the luxurious treatment of his purely analog mastering. Ricci re-mastered the footage on his Ampex studio tape machine for the exclusive vinyl edition of Fone. Petra Magoni's voice sounds clear and present, from the soulful touch to the powerfully expressive fortissimo, all the facets are perfectly captured, and the warmth, precision and plasticity of Spinetti's double bass is simply melted away. Like all Fone releases, "Leggera" also appears in a strictly limited edition - 496 copies worldwide. A pleasure, you really should not miss! wv

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."
No use is made of electronic manipulation of the signal, nor any artificial correction that if they make a sound easier to carve, it is true that distort so unacceptable. With this method you get to transfer the music information on the standard analog for the production of virgin vinyl 180g & 200g
fonè uses for the standard analog Nagra 4S, Studer C37 and J37 and Ampex ATR 102, the standard for digital, in collaboration with Philips the DSD (Direct Stream Digital) technology that has opened the doors to the SACD.
