America,   a   Great   Country,   has   always   been   synonymous   of   freedom: individual and collective freedom of thought, religions and expressions. The   latest   artistic   expressions   of   the   century,   were   born   and   developed in   this   great   Nation,   especially   in   the   field   of   art,   where   have   reached significant milestones. In   the   sixties   /   seventies,   it   is   the   music   that   takes   mainly   advantage from   this   great   unknown   freedom      until   then   and   the   echo   of   these   ideas came first in Europe and then in the rest of the world. Italy   could   not   ignore   this   social   and   cultural   revolution   and   all   the   Italian artists   were   involved   in   the   application   of   these   new   ideas   and   musical cultures that still exist today. And   at   this   point   we   must   speak   of   two   great   Italian   musicians   of   that time:   the   Maestro   Stefano   Torossi,   composer,   arranger   and   conductor, who,   after   studying   classical   double   bass   at   the   Conservatory   of   Rome and   won   a   scholarship,      from   the   '   57   to   '59   he   moved   to   the   United States   at   the   Institute   Williams   College   in   Williamstown,   Massachusetts and   Brandeis   University   in   Boston   and   Maestro   Giovanni Tommaso,   who began   studying   music   with   his   double   bass   attending   the   Conservatory in   the   '50s   and   in   the   same   time   was   interested   in   jazz,   and   later   moved to   Bologna   to   attend   the   Jam   Session   that   was   reference   for   this   type   of music, not only for city Emiliana,  but also for Italy. These   two   great   musicians   in   the   70s   have   made   for   Cometa   Edizioni Musicali,   a   series   of   songs   that   have   been   identified   perfectly   with   the new   expressive   music   born   in America   in   those   years,   and   so   it   was   that was   released   the   LP   "ECHOING   AMERICA   ",   an   album   that   contained the   most   beautiful   expressions   of   the   revolutionary   cultural   music,   born in   America    at    that    particular    moment    in    history.The    musical    themes treated   by   these   two   masters,   as   well   as   they   are   superbly   orchestrated and   carried   out,   are   perfectly   relevant   to   the   theme   proposed   by   the individual   songs:   "ECHOING AMERICA"   which   reflects   literally   the   words "THIS IS AMERICA." So,   musically,   moving   from   a   "JUNGLE   HARLEM"   or   the   urban   jungle, where    a    dark    and    obsessive    rhythm    and    a    obstinate    percussion overlapped   with   art,   the   lines   emitted   by   an   electric   guitar   and   other instruments,   in   imitation   of   the   sounds   of   horn   and   other   sounds   that   are part   of   the   way   of   life   in   the   black   neighborhood   of   New   York,   give   a sophisticated   song   of   country,   "DANCE   TOMORROW",   a   typical   dance of the white population in the south area of the country. Or   switch   a   very   gritty   rock   that   takes   us   along   an   imaginary   journey through   the   streets   and   the   endless   straight   Americans,   coast   to   coast, entitled    "COAST    TO    COAST"    a    typical    song    "FAKE    IT"    in    which    a nostalgic    harmonica    ,    accompanied    by    a    banjo,    reminiscent    of    the spectacular   sunsets   over   the   Grand   Canyon   ....   and   so   on   until   the   end of   the   CD,   that   with   his   music   and   our   thoughts,   lead   us   in   all   those hidden corners that are part of that vast country called America. Have a good trip!
