A long-awaited return home to CAM JAZZ for Javier Girotto, this time in a unique project where he is co-leader with Neapolitan pianist Francesco Nastro—writer of all the songs except two. A project in which the personalities of the two artists come together to create a work of great beauty. Girotto’s unmistakable language meets that of Francesco Nastro—an interlocutor who knows how to observe but also how to convey—offering great ideas and high-level technique. As the highly-esteemed drummer Peter Erskine, who has had occasion to work with Nastro several times, says of this duo: "They sound as though they were meant to play together, and the good news is that they met to record this album and document their singular approach to duo playing. I believe this to be a unique project, one that reflects new light on the art of the duet. "Passione" is an album that will not go unnoticed and certainly, if Girotto now no longer needs introduction, this will be occasion to consecrate the pianist from Castellammare di Stabia, an artist who undoubtedly deserves the spotlight, both as pianist and composer.

Recorded and mixed in Castellamare di Stabia (Italy) on 20, 22 June 2011 at Elios Registrazioni Audiovisive Recording engineer Vincenzo Schiavo Mixing engineer Lello Esposito
