Ala traditional Italian style, REEL ITALIAN is a CD with a lot of heart, history and respect. In this album dedicated to his immigrant parents, Filippo really did his homework in finding Italian songs made famous by the American movies from decades ago to the present. He also recorded them with live musicians and original instruments to characterize the period in which they were made popular. Thus included are many of the Standards and favorites from and era gone by as well as today, and played live by not only guitarists, pianists and drummers but accordionists and mandolinists too.
The CD also features a few surprises. One such surprise is the song "Mona Lisa" that was introduced in the movie "Capitan Carey, USA," only in Italian. It wasn''t recorded in English until later by Nat King Cole. Not since the movie has the song been sung in the original language and with the original verse. The same is true for the song "Bella Notte" which was sung on the sound track of the Disney animated feature "Lady and the Tramp" in Italian and then as a featured song in English. Here Filippo has obtained the rights from Disney to be the first to sing and record the original Italian lyrics since the movie was released.
Finally, a similar story accompanies the song "Summertime in Venice" from the movie "Summertime" starring Katherine Hepburn and Rosano Brazzi. But not to spoil the surprise, we''ll let you hear about that from Filippo himself as he tells it live on the CD as he does in his performances with his unique storytelling style.
