Mar endins, feat. Kekko Fornarelli Trio (Digipack Edition)
Rusó Sala (vcl, g), Kekko Fornarelli (p, keyb), Giampaolo Laurentaci (b), Dario Congedo (d, perc)
Singer and writer Rusó Salas debut album was La Ciutat Imaginària, released in 2009, and ever since she has been touring internationally with Rosa Zaragoza. Mar Endins, the second album by Rusó Sala, is the fruit of her collaboration with Italian jazz pianist Kekko Fornarelli, whom Paolo Fresu described as one of the most interesting young pianists from the current scene.
The ten originals in Mar Endins are the perfect combination of personality, jazz, and Mediterranean music, a unique style with deep, poetical undertones. Rusós limpid voice exudes articulateness and sensibility in a unique style that she uses to communicate and project her songs, be they melancholic ballads or lively, happy-tempoed tunes. Kekko Fornarellis versatile arrangements for quartet dress Rusó Salas compositions with subtle intensity, bringing out the color in them, and making this album a small gem full of brilliance and emotion.
