“Tributes are a kind of fashion in jazz and today it’s cool to declare oneself a rockstar. That’s why I pulled myself back from dedicating an album to The Doors, my absolute favorite band, for such a long time. Then my love to Jim Morrison and his mates dominated.
OverDOORS, despite facing some troubles at the beginning, has been growing strongly. The first doubt was wich songs to choose: I wish I could revisit them all. Under my fingers I had another doubt, due to the different possibilities of how to reinterpret the historical Californian band. For one month, only one question was on my mind: should I choose a cover approach or a free musical revision? I actually took both, wearing Converse, feeling free to analyse and fit back [Light My Fire], singing and whispering melodies both ethereal and eternal [like Blue Sunday and Yes, The River Knows]. I am curious to see my friends’ reaction to the groove Waiting For The Sun; Carlo, Piero and all others, whom I dreamt with, sitting on a bench, flying on the notes of LA Woman. Luca“
