One evening in early June 2017, clarinettist Gabriele Mirabassi and guitarist Roberto Taufic ‘explored the various planes of colour and flavour in music’. (cit. Brian Morton)
The recording was made by Stefano Amerio at the Venica&Venica winery in Dolegna del Collio in June 2017 and mixed at the Artesuono studios in Cavalicco with artistic production by Ermanno Basso. Mastering was handled by Danilo Rossi.
“Jazz notes blend with the tasting notes of a glass of wine creating an evening of pure magic.
Emotions run on the wings of the notes of Nítido and Obscuro. Dedicating an unpublished composition to me, Donna Ornella, Gabriele Mirabassi and Roberto Taufic took me to a new dimension that made me feel special.” (cit. Ornella Venica)
“Wine and Jazz. In a way, the juxtaposition is inevitable, not because at its origins it was in semi-dark cellars that jazz music found its most devoted audience, but because both require a skilful combination of skill and technique, excellent raw material and, above all, time. Ermanno Basso, producer of the CAM JAZZ label, confirms the deep ties between wine and jazz, which he defines as “both so full of vitality!”, and emphasises their common ability to cope with the months it takes to organise that one week of recording, roughly the time it takes for a good Friulian wine to acquire its mature identity.” (quoting Brian Morton)
