Album Review

Chante is an exemplary cultivation of Aldo Romano's jardín of romantic songs. His poignant intimacy of feelings is genuinely conveyed in this stylish set of emotional songs replete with rhythmic waves, passionate lyrics, and beautiful music. With superb accompaniment from Nelson Veras on acoustic guitar, Rémi Vignolo on double bass, André "Dee" Ceccarelli on drums, Francesco Bearzatti on tenor saxophone and clarinet, Flavio Boltro on trumpet, and Baptiste Trotignon on piano, the pleasure you will derive from Romano's poetic expressions is priceless. Whether you're enjoying the quiet, joie aimer of Cole Porter's "So in Love" with a special person or at your leisure in a dignified daydream by the "L'etang" on a sunny carefree day, you're sure to yield to the romantic allurement of Aldo Romano's wonderful voice. Chante's seduction is in the taste and swagger of Romano's delivery, arrangements, and song selection. "A St. Germain des Pres," sung in French, brings you close to a lover in a Parisian café. "The End of a Love Affair," which is sung in accented English, drips with forlorn charm, while "Lo Qui Tu Li" is a slow-burning love affair featuring supermodel Carla Bruni. Their flawless pairing offers listeners an imaginative setting that brings to mind a champagne sunset sail for two. With extra spice from the accompanying string ensemble, this song is the centerpiece of the recording. The ultra-romantic "Sans un Mot" is a ballad that is tinged with the easy-to-cozy-up-to saxophonics of Francesco Bearzatti. Here, Romano's voice is an irresistible art form that beckons you to curl up on a canopied bed with cocktail in hand. It resonates with sex appeal and is as unique as two lovers. "Estate" further seals Aldo's diverse set of influences in a charming envelope of passionate musical innovation. A beautiful piano solo by Baptiste Trotignon keeps the song soft and calm in a mosaic of idyllic improvisations.
