TRATTO DA UNA STORIA VERA
Joe Barbieri releases his most autobiographical album, a cd pervaded by a symphonic backbone that Joe wanted to take care of in first person down to the last detail.
At his side a bunch of great friends: from Jaques Morelenbaum to Fabrizio Bosso, from Carmen Consoli to Sergio Cammariere, from Tosca to Mauro Ottolini, plus some of the most talented musicians who have recorded from the four corners of the planet.
COSMONAUTA DA APPARTAMENTO
Dedicated to the theme of travel and inspired by the poems of Konstantinos Kavafis, "Cosmonauta Da Appartamento" is the fourth Joe Barbieri's album.
With the special featurings of Hamilton De Holanda, Luz Casal, Peppe Servillo and La Shica.
MAISON MARAVILHA VIVA
First live album for Joe Barbieri, recorded at the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome.
"Maison Maravilha Viva" is the live "photography" (in cd + dvd format) of the studio album released one year before and entitled "Maison Maravilha".
The singer Mario Venuti is guest in the song "Pura Ambra".
Inizia e si snoda come una lettera l’omaggio di Joe Barbieri a “Lady Day”, la regina triste di Baltimora.
Alcuni tra i capolavori resi celebri da Billie Holiday oltre ad un inedito che presta il nome all’album e ad una perla in italiano, sono le parole accorate di questa missiva che Barbieri – accompagnato da tre giganti del jazz come Gabriele Mirabassi, Pietro Lussu e Luca Bulgarelli – ha voluto inviare ad una delle sue più amate muse ispiratrici.
Released in the twenty-five year anniversary of his death, "Chet Lives!" is a tribute record to Chet Baker, one of Joe Barbieri's musical heroes.
Made in trio, with Antonio Fresa on piano and Luca Aquino on trumpet, the album is enriched by contributions by Stacey Kent, Marcio Faraco, Nicola Stilo and Furio Di Castri.
"Maison Maravilha" is the second Joe Barbieri's album, the first one released with a symphonic orchestra.
The album contains the songs "Normalmente" and the poignant fado "Malegría", featured by the star of 'Buena Vista Social Club' Omara Portuondo.
Based on the concepts of fragility and beauty that origami - the Japanese art of folding paper, from which the title is borrowed - miraculously succeed to put in connection, the fifth Joe Barbieri's album marks the full maturity of the Neapolitan artist.
Featured by Paolo Fresu on trumpet.
Third album for Joe Barbieri, with guests as Stefano Bollani, Jorge Drexler, Gianmaria Testa and Fabrizio Bosso.
Distributed in over fifty countries, it includes - among others - cult songs such as "Zenzero E Cannella" and "Scusami".
