"Project One": a recording project Velut Luna that was born thanks to the friendship and the long musical and artistic collaboration of the M, Marco Lo Muscio. with three iconic names of progressive and contemporary music: David Jackson, John Hackett and Steve Hackett.
The project is a great tribute, with totally acoustic arrangements, to the various styles of the great music of the '900 and contemporary. The basic system sees the gothic and symphonic sound of the pipe organ amalgamated with the power of the saxophones of David Jackson. The guitar of Steve Hackett and the flute of John Hackett add the final touch in some special arrangements created specifically for this recording project.
The composers chosen come from the world of music of the '900 and contemporary (Benjamin Britten, György Ligeti, Aaron Copland, George Martin and Marco Lo Muscio), soundtracks (Wojciech Kilar), Modern Jazz (Jan Garbarek) and Progressive (King Crimson, Genesis, Van Der Graaf Generator, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Pink Floyd, David Jackson and Steve Hackett). Listening acoustically to this music will reveal new nuances and details; you will also understand how progressive music interpreted in this key is actually very close and influenced by classical music of the '900.
Finally, the well-known high quality of Velut Luna recordings by Marco Lincetto will offer an incredible sound range in listening to this original and unique recording project!

Il cantante al mircrofono LP Vynil 180
Original compositions by Vladimir Vysotsky. Translation by Sergio Secondiano Sacchi, Filippo Del Corno orchestration, Eugenio Finardi voice. Sentieri Selvaggi: Paola Fre flute, Mirco Ghirardini clarinet, Paolo Pasqualin vibraphone, Andrea Rebaudengo piano, Piercarlo Sacco violin, Paola Perardi cello, Carlo Boccadoro conductor. Il Cantante al Microfono è dedicato a Vladimir Vysotskij, il grande attore, poeta e cantautore russo duramente osteggiato dal regime sovietico e tragicamente scomparso nel 1980. La sua musica accompagna con intriganti melodie, ora dal sapore balcanico, ora dai toni orientaleggianti, ora ricalcando antichi tempi di valzer, i testi acutissimi. Dal corpus delle sue oltre 500 canzoni Eugenio Finardi e Filippo Del Corno hanno scelto una decina di titoli fortemente rappresentativi della tensione etica, spirituale, politica e dell’ironia corrosiva che anima il lavoro di Vysotskij. Le canzoni sono state quindi tradotte in italiano da Sergio Secondiano Sacchi e strumentate per l’ensemble Sentieri Selvaggi dallo stesso Del Corno, in una versione che mette in luce l’altissima qualità poetica e musicale dei versi di Vysotskij e che soprattutto permette il pieno dispiegamento della straordinaria potenza interpretativa di Eugenio Finardi. Un organico squisitamente acustico che affianca con una straordinaria ricchezza di suoni la voce potente ed evocativa di Eugenio Finardi. L'opera ha vinto la Targa Tenco 2008, nella Sezione interpreti di canzoni non proprie
OVAL DREAMS 180 GR. PURE VINYL
Rock. Original compositions by: Twenty Four Hours. Twenty Four Hours: Nico Colucci bass, Marco Lippe drums-fake echo, Paolo Lippe vocals-piano-synthetizers, Antonio Paparelli electric & acoustic guitars, bass. Giovanni Lombardi: lead guitar on “ Twenty-Four-Pink-Hot-Tentacles”. Michele Deflorio: percussion & tambourine on “ Twenty-Four-Pink-Hot-Tentacles” Oval Dreams from Alberobello's Trulli! In 1998, an italian psychedelic-progressive rock band called Twenty Four Hours signed a contract with the French Progressive label Musea which published the third CD of the group, “OVAL DREAMS”. The album surprised public and critics for both music and the particular recording inside a trullo, the rural buiding of Puglia. The work was distributed almost exclusively outside Italy and sold out in USA, Japan, Corea and Russia and reprinted by the russian label Mals in 2009. Today, after 13 years from the first CD edition, Velut Luna offers an outstanding audiophile remixed edition, on a 180 gr. pure vinyl of amazing quality. It's not simply a “remastered” version of the old album, but a completely analog remixing starting from the original 8 track reel-to-reel, made with the outstanding mixer Soundcraft 3200 to the “TOP” of the analog master recordings, STUDER A816. A psyche-progressive rock with echoes from the typical sounds of those years with great attention to the audiophile public which will appreciate the uncommon ambience given by the vaulting of the trulli.
The Velut Luna's Reference Vinyl - Limited Edition (2 LP 140 GR)
The Velut Luna’s Reference Vinyl LP 140 GR. LIMITED EDITION (2 LP + FILE HD) The child in the cover image is me. At the age of two. It was 1963. I’ve always loved listening to records. Certainly because of my family history, with my father who was an illustrious classical pianist and refined composer, and my mother an opera singer. But certainly in those early years of childhood was great charm that aroused in me those black pavilions that ran on the old family turntable and from which came out my favorite fairy tales, narrated by great voices of great actors (I remember for example, Nando Gazzolo and his Little Red Riding Hood, and Hansel and Grethel, and Thumbelino, whose records I literally consumed...). Around the age of eight or nine, the Beatles' transition from fairy tales to singles at the end of their career (Obladì, Obladà), or to the unusual and unknown sound of the Theremin used in Beach Boys' Good Vibrations, was a very natural fact. And when I was 13 years old I started to discover Santana, Pink Floyd, Genesis, etc.etc.etc. , together with the reading of Suono and Stereoplay, it was just as natural to get involved with the images of the great reel recorders of the time, suitable for the then rare home studios. My first love, long dreamed and never owned, was the Tascam 80-8, eight tracks on half-inch tape. And the dream microphones were the Sennheiser, the MD441 and the MD421... But the real dream was "to study me"... which will remain for a long time only, in fact, a dream. When finally at 19 years I met the music of Jim Croce and I understood that... " Si-Can-Do!" (cit.) It was the moment when it became clear to me that sooner or later, I would do that work, I would "make records". And the rest is history... My culture, my tradition, my fundamental experiences, are ANALOG. Although right from the start of my professional career in 1992, I was a standard bearer of quality digital, I never abandoned the analog and above all I never abandoned the "analog mentality". So this ninth vinyl produced by me can only be the first of a series of "collections" of the best of the many beautiful music I have produced over the last 30 years with my Velut Luna. And on the cover you can’t find the word "Volume 1", just for luck. But if this format will be successful others will follow. In the meantime, enjoy listening to these authentic "children" of mine.
LIVING BLUES - THE ITALIAN RECORDINGS (LP 180 GR + CD + FILE HD)
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.

Two For The Road
Two For The Road (LP 180 GR + CD* + FILE HD*) Chiara Pastò, Francesco Pollon *CD (NO JEWEL BOX) and HD files are inside the vinyl. THE BEST YOUTH by Marco Lincetto Chiara Pastò finally arrives to make a Jazz record. At the fourth album, all made with my label Velut Luna and with me as a producer, the young, brilliant singer from Padova now faces in the height of his artistic and vocal maturity his "territory of choice" to which he has worked throughout his academic career and has practiced on many concert occasions. The repertoire of this record presents some famous standards, such as the title track or Round Midnight, but also a very original excursion in the famous song of Astor Piazzolla, Libertango, to which Chiara herself gives a fascinating new text. And then his original song, written with Enrico Santacatterina, Just A Smile, which is a workhorse of his pop area, so to speak, today reinterpreted in a jazz standard style. A complete and mature album, which is exalted by the pianistic wisdom, by the refined taste, seasoned by an admirable technique of Francesco Pollon, perhaps the most representative Italian jazz pianist of the young generation, who currently lives and works in New York, after earning a prestigious master’s degree there at the Manhattan School of Music - Jazz Arts. In short... The young, great musicians, still exist, and more than ever, in Italy: just give them the space they deserve!
