Gianmaria Testa - Altre Latitudini

[Le Chant Du Monde]

Described as the Italian Leonard Cohen (if that doesn't conjure up too strange an image?) this is his fifth album and it will surely add to his recognition as one of the most important contemporary Italian song writers and singers (although he was first 'discovered' in France). This is elegant music, Gianmaria¹s delivery is warm and simple, his voice both husky and tender enveloped in an aura of a sort of beautiful melancholy that provides the foil to his poetic lyrics. Superb. Graham Radley
