Is a sonic journey that passes through the repertoire of the two musicians. The Duo, voice and guitar find here new colors, including with the use of electronics. This search, which combines sounds and harmonies, characteristic of the Mediterranean, created by using a variety of colors in guitar Filippo Cosentino (acoustic, electric and baritone) and voice Federica Gennai who becomes an instrument and original interpreter of this Mediterranean tradition, while remaining consistent to the typical characteristics of contemporary European jazz.

E' un viaggio sonoro all’interno di un repertorio quasi interamente composto dai due musicisti. La formazione, voce e chitarra, è qui alla ricerca di nuovi colori, anche attraverso l’uso dell’elettronica. Una ricerca che unisce le sonorità ed armonie tipiche del mediterraneo, create dai molti colori della chitarra di Filippo Cosentino (acustica, elettrica e baritona), alla voce di Federica Gennai che si fa strumento ed interprete originale di quella tradizione (mediterranea) pur rimanendo coerente ad alcune caratteristiche tipiche del jazz contemporaneo europeo.

Track Name: Loneliness
When the evening falls I think about
All the things I might have done
Lonely, staring through the window pane
While my tears get lost in the rain.

In my solitude you haunt me so
And it never seems to end
Will I ever learn that love can never last?
Good things come and go too fast.

Still I know one day
Maybe Monday, maybe Tuesday
Love will find a way
But until then…

…All – that I can do – is sit and pray
For these clouds to pass me by
Hope – is what – gets me – though the night
Tryin’ to find my path to the light.
Track Name: No Solution Re Solution
Running ‘round in circles in my mind
My thoughts are tanglin’…
Trying hard to face this double bind
Nowhere to hide…
Will peace abide… in me?

Where is the solution to my grief?
When will I love again?
Doubts and fears are strong beyond belief
Still I’m alive
I’ll survive as long – as I know I can dream
Problems can dissolve – and as strange as it seems
I will finally breathe.
Track Name: Lullaby In Blue
Inside the blue
You can fine your way
In every word you say
Turn the light to shine
From the darkness can you realize
Every thing you search and find
Every precious time inside the blue
Track Name: Baritona
Hangin' my guitar on merry-go round
Playin' alone I'm searching for lazy sound

Turn and get away

Maybe tomorrow will be my better day

Looking for someone who play the game
Bounded by jugglers wearing a burning flame

Turn and get away

Maybe tomorrow will be my better day
Track Name: Every Moment Is A Gift (Song for Paola)
Time and illusions fall behind
And then suddenlyI find
I’m able to look at things from a different angle
And peace is all I can feel
And I know life is now
I can close my eyes and feel
Eternity is not a long, long time for me
Oh, can’t you see
It’s now and here
You won’t believe the joy your heart can hold
Let your eyes behold
The beauty inside your soul
Every moment is a gift
As you gently, slowly drift away
And you leave your worries and fears behind
And you realize all is well
Keep an open mind,
Love the little things
Live in harmony:
This is all you need
To make your life complete.
Track Name: Come Hell Or Hight Water
The night was blue,
untill a shimmering light was here to take
her mind beneath her will
strong and persistent like a sea shore
trying....and trying...and
chase the joy and grab your way

Come hell or high water
Come hell or high water
Come hell or high water
Come hell or high water
