Frank Pilato Stories


Debut solo album by guitarist Frank Pilato, playing the music of Andrea Marcelli, for a very special project, with a story over 20 years long... Andrea Marcelli after recording two critic acclaimed albums for Verve/Polygram "Silent Will" in 1989 and for Verve and Lipstick Rec. "Oneness" in 1991, composed the music for the new album "Stories". This new project was partially recorded in June 1993, engineered by Allan Holdsworth, as the first recording made in his newly built Brewery studio in Vista, California. The music was envisioned by Marcelli for an electric guitar as main soloist. Holdsworth could not play for contractual problems so the album was not finished. During the following years Marcelli kept playing Jazz world wide and moved from Los Angeles (1989) to New York in 1997 and then to Berlin in 2001. He always had in mind to finish his project "Stories". Some years later he finally came into contact with Italian young and talented electric guitarist Frank Pilato, who also lived and played for a while in Los Angeles. Frank took the challenge and responsibility to successfully record and finally finish the album, in 2015, together with engineer Matteo Guasti at the Labella Studio in Florence. Pilato wanted also to contribute with a new composition and recorded with Marcelli an inedit guitar/drums duo! The band includes an exceptional rhythm section with Marcelli's long time collaborator pianist Mitchel Forman, plus bassists Gary Willis and eJff Berlin! A very special project which embraces over 20 years of personal stories.
