Paolo Fresu plays David Bowie. This is in itself is newsworthy. And he does it with a star-studded cast, and that is first class news.
"When I was presented with this project (by the Town Council of the city of Monsummano Terme in Tuscany, where in 1969 Bowie made his first public appearance in Italy as a complete stranger)", says Paolo Fresu, "I felt honoured and touched. I decided to form a unique band, specially created, with major eclectic musicians from different fields, even far from jazz. I think that is very valuable. To approach the music of David Bowie is very exciting and also a great opportunity for all of us."
Fresu and company bring a new look to about thirty songs, including classics such as ‘Life on Mars’, ‘This is not America’, ‘Warszawa’ and ‘When I live my dreams’, with each member of the band contributing to the arrangements, adding variety and dynamism to the project.
