"The Grand" is a collection of spontaneous modern jazz tunes with classical influences. Rational and irrational ideas are performed with passion, energy and meditation: this is Andrea most amazing project so far. Many listeners consider "The Grand" as Avant-garde, unconventional, poetic, healing and unpredictable. It was conceived to celebrate the Piano, its sound and infinite possibilities. Beyond a simple composition and few melodic themes, Andrea developed additional structures and improvised other parts. He says "after a while, you are not playing by the rules anymore, you are totally transported by the music and each note or chord inspires your next move. You're playing in a true state of bliss, it's an incredible feeling". The Grand is Andrea's finest album so far.
