From mother to son: a baby son for Lady Jessica

Phew, I was just dying to let this out: in a few months Lady Jessica will become a mother of a baby boy. She is fine, and the baby is fine too (assuming he likes the pipes, of which he already got a healthy dose, as you can imagine). Following this lovely “inconvenience”, starting from the show of June 8th and through the summer tour, she will not be performing with Fiamma Fumana, and will be replaced by Fabio Vetro on the piva emiliana and flutes. To the new mamma the greatest hug from me personally and the rest of FF, waiting to meet her again on the stages of the world. Soon, please, because Fabio is a wonderful musician, but Jessica… is Jessica.

Jessica’s album is BRILLIANT!

Lady Jessica was here yesterday to meet a few people together with us. She brought us an anticipation of her album, a “remix” of field recordings (collected in the 60s) of folksongs in the Arezzo area. It’s called “In dote”(roughly “My dowry”), and is SO BEAUTIFUL, full of love and respect for the tradition of music, language and culture that consotutes the dowry of our Tuscan Lady, and of us all, really. It will be released in a matter of days by Suoni e Armonie, and I think it is one of the best Italian folk music albums ever made. I am so happy!

L’album di Jessica E’ BELLISSIMO!

Lady Jessica era qui a Milano ieri per incontrare con noi un po’ di persone. Ci ha portato un’anteprima del suo disco, un “remix” di registrazioni d’epoca (raccolti negli anni 60) di canti popolari dell’aretino. Si chiama “In dote”, ed è BELLISSIMO, pieno di amore e rispetto per la tradizione di musica, lingua e cultura che, appunto, costituisce la dote della nostra Lady toscana, e di tutti noi. Uscirà a giorni per Suoni e Armonie, secondo me è una delle cose migliori mai fatte sulla musica popolare italiana. Come sono contento!
