QUE BOM
The new album by Stefano Bollani
from 25 may 2018
QUE BOM

Italian pianist-composer Stefano Bollani's new album QUE BOM - a genuine hymn to life marked by sparkling liveliness and (contagious) joy - mainly consists of Bollani’s own original tunes and distinctive melodies strongly influenced and informed by Brazilian music culture, which Bollani has always cherished since the very beginning of his rich, multifaceted crackerjack music making and dexterous playing.

In QUE BOM Bollani is joined by the same outstanding Brazilian rhythm section as in his earlier, extremely successful CARIOCA project (2008) - Jorge Helder (db), Jurim Moreira (dr) and Armando Marçal (perc) - plus Thiago da Serrinha (perc), but here, in QUE BOM, also by the grand guest stars Caetano Veloso, João Bosco, Jaques Morelenbaum and Hamilton de Holanda.

The CD packaging, an elegant and exquisite 6-side DigiSleeve with an 8-page booklet, contains the lyrics of the songs with Caetano Veloso and João Bosco, photos of the merry Rio recording session by Vinícius Giffoni and extraordinary pictures from Codex Seraphinianus by Italian artist and designer Luigi Serafini.

QUE BOM, entirely produced by Bollani, is the first album to be released worldwide by his own newly created label ALOBAR on 25th May 2018.
