The child prodigy has grown and, obviously, has changed. Four years have passed since “Happy Time”, his first studio album distributed worldwide, and Francesco Cafiso has returned to record for CAM Jazz: the new album by the Roman label is entitled “Angelica” and this time the Sicilian musician records in New York with pianist Aaron Parks, bassist Ben Street, and drummer Adam Cruz. In “Angelica” there are standards which are revisited with modern sensibility by a 20-year-old kid, as well as original pieces.

"Evidently, when growing, there is human maturation as well as musical reflection”, says Francesco Cafiso. “And this new album is particular because it reflects the tradition of jazz, to which I always feel tied, but also the desire to move forward”.
About his album mates Cafiso adds: “All three of them are extraordinary musicians, out of this world. And super professional. But I was also impressed by their openness, by their ability to be musicians at 360°. They are versatile and can do anything. Playing with Aaron, Ben and Adam was for me an important experience”.

And from this feeling the album benefited, an album that enchants from beginning to end, and whose listeners discover a new and different Cafiso, always very concentrated on his limpid alto sax, and even more attentive than before to the musical content.
