The innate strength and vigor of Rosario Bonaccorso's melodic writing, together with his striking formal structure, make him widely regarded a highly influential and innovative double bass player. Viaggiando consists of 14 original compositions that propel listeners headlong on an incredible journey, subtly shifting from one continent to another, while drifting through emotions linked by the common thread of the voyage, an inspirational trigger that has always played a key role in the musical adventures of the double bassist. A deep introspection pervades Bonaccorso's music, a soul-searching autobiography that reveals his passions and inspirations: distant journeys into unknown lands, nature, the sea itself, love, and contrasting emotions -- these are the true heart of the album. There are also a few tracks on which the musician sings for the first time: "Storto," "My Faith," "Mon Frere"... Bonaccorso's voice is perfectly and expressively symbiotic with his instrument. He has chosen his travelling companions with acute sensitivity and awareness, to achieve an end result that is true to his inspiration; effective and beguiling. At his side, Fabrizio Bosso sustains the creative flow, as he intuitively chisels evocative melodic fragments with his trumpet and saxophone, while Argentinian saxophonist Javier Girotto (soprano sax, baritone sax, quena, and moseño) and Brazilian guitarist Roberto Taufic blend seamlessly into the fabric, further flavoring this journey with the cultural sensitivity of their respective homelands. A voyage that spans the Mediterranean, American jazz, Brazil, Argentina... essential and pure ingredients that, under the guidance of Rosario Bonaccorso, give birth to a kaleidoscope of emotions that only music can convey.
