LIVING BLUES - THE ITALIAN RECORDINGS

(LP 180 GR + CD* + FILE HD*)

*CD (NO JEWEL BOX) and HD files are inside the vinyl.

“Living Blues or “Playing the Blues?

Without a doubt, Max belongs to the first category, and for this reason playing and sharing time becomes an out of the ordinary experience. Despite having a large territory in common - the Land of the Blues - our musical goals appear apparently distant, however, each encounter generates a unique alchemy, which surprises us first. This record tells of life, of its joys and sorrows, of love and resignation, but never of defeat. The first side of the LP expresses the essence of the Blues, its roots and its evolution. The second is a journey through time and space, between the difficulties of life, hope and acceptance, although the solo that dissolves the tonality and rhythm in the first of the bonus tracks is the metaphor that “We still haven’t found what we’re looking for; and so we continue to seek.

Enrico Merlin
