Alessandro Bottura Lets Loose The Perfect Debut Album Of Instrumental Funk Songs In The New Morning Grooves CD.
This album is full of wonderful surprises. The movements are complex and yet simple. All tracks are a delight to the ears.
Funk, Rock, Pop and Jazz all mixed up in this first album by Italian bass player Alessandro Bottura; a 9-track instrumental journey in a Fusion experience that learns from masters such as Weather Report, Yellowjackets, Rippingtons, Spyro Gyra and MM&W. (CDBaby Review)
The Morning Grooves Project
Born from the abundance of ideas (some good, some other less, I must admit), from the need of listen as realized what I've got in my head and from the almost total absence of external collaborators, the project Morning Grooves contains everything that influenced me in my musical carreer, from Hard Rock to Funk, passing through Pop and Jazz: so, it mustn't be surprising finding here recalls and quotations more or less explicit to well-known songs and artists and not. The title itself comes from the situation in which these song are written, that is during my daily morning training sessions, from which I take some permissions to develop any possible ideas. The project has finally taken the definitive form of LP at the beginning of 2009, thanks to the support and the collaboration given by Mark A. Forrest, musical manager and publisher known on IMISound, and now on sale at CDBaby.com CD and MP3 Formats.
