This is a new edition of my album the Swing of Things. The quality of the mix and mastering has been improved. I think this job deserved a good refresher.

The Swing Of Things is a collection of songs composed between 2012 and 2014 by Paolo Pavan and Davide Marinacci. Typically the sounds of jazz songs like Do It, One, Escape blend with more experimental sounds that give life to songs Funk (Open The Source), experimental Pop (Seven) and Ethnic sounds (Moja, Uolz). The quartet also experiments with these eclectic sounds with the help of some good musicians: Pasqualino Ubaldini and Davide Roberto (Italian folk music) and Giovani Amato and Fabio Sartori (exponents of the Italian jazz music).
The quartet was founded in 2000 by Paolo Pavan in collaboration with saxophonist and friend Davide Marinacci. After the first period of preparation and study led to the first quartet that reworks the classic quartets historians such as John Coltrane and Thelonious Monk. Then comes the idea for the Cd of original music. Hence the first cd "Inside" followed by "Looking For A Way Out" and the last "The Swing Of Things" released this year which is enjoying already the clamor of the international public (defined by Jamendo one of the best groups of the south of Europe). On its way the quartet meets the major clubs and Festivals of Italy.
