I love writing songs. All the sudden, the melody hits me when I listen to voices that give me emotions. This collection is dedicated to all the singers that interpreted my music.
The record collects 9 songs composed by Alessandro Bertozzi inspired by the unmistakable voices of Paola Folli, Hiram Bullock, Joshua Lloyd West alias doctor West, Luca Velletri, Melody Castellari and Jean Diarra with whom he creates duets together with his Yamaha alto saxophone.
With the launch of the new album WHY MUST I WAIT? Alessandro wants to commemorate the friendship and the musical collaboration with the Afro-American guitarist Hiram Bullock.
All the compositions are by Alessandro Bertozzi while the lyrics are written by David James Stockdale, Melody Castellari, Jean Diarra and Joshua Lloyd West.
The songs are edited in Alessandro's Talkin'back, Crystals and Funky Party which are all part of the Level49 catalogue, apart from "A new kind of dawn" and "Break out" that are published for the first time.
