LP: the thrill of being on a long-playing

The thrill of being on a long-playing: the double long-playing of the LPN project will be out soon.



The double long-playing of the LPN project will be out soon.



For someone like me, who grew up listening to the Long-Playings from the family collection, it was an emotion when they informed me that a double LP of the last work recorded with William Jones' La Porta Nuova would be released.

Also because I think it's the first work I've recorded that ends up on this type of support.


An iconic object in the musical industry, also a symbol of an era in which music was not just a "background", but an art to be listened to and beyond.

The albums often contained the lyrics but also a lot of pieces of information regarding the work that was being listened to: label, musicians, technicians, authors, arrangers, messages... Yes, sometimes there was also the artist's dedication or cryptic messages, which made everything so magical. But not only. Release date, copyright, etc… And you looked at them over and over again. Listening to them.


They also taught you to have patience, everything was slower. It had to be "savored". You couldn't fast forward or rewind with "one click", even when the "turntable" became very performing... They had their times. You had to be delicate with the "needles", almost as if to teach you the respect that is needed towards this splendid Art that is Music.


Well. If you understand what I tried to explain above, perhaps you can imagine what it means to know that a work in which you took part will be "molded" on a vinyl...


Also in this album there will be a lot of information that the production wanted to publish, with full respect for all those who took part in the work carried out in the several months of recording, mixing and mastering between Italy and England.
Months in which important characters and mythical places played a role in the completion of the work begun almost a year ago, such as Geoff Pesche at Abbey Road Studios or Dave Blackman at Hiltongrove Mastering, or Senior Choir Director “Becky” Thomas at London Community Gospel Choir for the choir arrangement on the lead single, in which the splendid voice of soloist Annette Bowen stands out. The various sound engineers, starting with Alessandro Ciola who followed the project in its entirety, both at Imagina Productions and in the sessions in England at MVLS Music in London.

And clearly the musicians, in addition to myself - Alex Bonacci - on drums, Ivano Gruarin on guitars, Francesco Vecchia on bass, the string quartet directed by Paolo Giolo, Paolo Gambino on keyboards and Alessandra Turri as backing vocals.


A small parenthesis, given that it fills me with pride: many of the performers I suggested when I was contacted at the time for the realization of the William Jones project are also collaborators at the music hub that I manage, demonstrating once again their great professionalism.


Below you can find the names of the artists who took part and some shots of the beautiful experience.

Further down, while waiting for the arrival of the LPs scheduled for spring, you can listen to the single already available on the main digital stores.
