Tito Mangialajo Rantzer preferisce (da sempre) la musica alle strizzate d’occhio. E come per giusta magia, è questo sentimento integerrimo a rendere la sua proposta fresca e “leggera” come il vero jazz sa essere
A LIFETIME OF MUSIC INSPIRED BY THE LOVE FOR THE BASS FREQUENCIES:
Steve York is a bassist with a really solid background. He’s the perfect partner for several musical contexts ans he’s definitely a musician who in a long and honourable career has combined reliability with creativity, which is one of the rarest skill....
BORN TO "FIGHT" FOR THE MUSIC:
Mauro Gargano, born in 1972, of Bari, is undoubtedly one of the greatest double bass player out there. He’s a musician with a clear sound and a special sensibility. Mauro has been living in France since 1998 and he’s extremely active on the Transalpine as well as European scene. He has realized one of the most beautiful jazz records over the last years, called Suite For Battling Siki which was dedicated to the great and unlucky senegalese boxer who was killed (aged only 28) by a mystery murderer on the streets of New York...
THE ART OF A
HIGH-END SESSION MAN:
Neil belongs to that precious and limited group of dreamy session men whom any artist would like to recruit.

THE ART OF BASS TOLD BY ONE OF ITS LEGENDS:
When we received Mo Foster’s answers for this interview, of which we are proud and we’re really excited about that, we of Bass, My Fever, couldn’t help but ask to ourselves a rethorical question: if we have to write about a legendary bassist over the last fifty years, is there the risk that we forget anything?...
CLOVEN HOOF, A MODEL OF THINKING MAN'S METAL:
When you mention the name of Cloven Hoof, as regards hard rock and heavy metal, it is undisputed that you’re talking about a real institution, that is to say a band that was born back in 1979 in Wolverhampton in the middle of NWOBHM....
THE INSTINCT OF GROOVE:
INTERVIEW WITH JOEY VERA
Our passion for Harmored Saint has begun with the release of their first legendary EP in 1983. So for thirty-four years we have been familiar with Joey Vera’s name as well as with his nervous, strong and elegant bass that is virtuoso without resorting to the usual tricks of the trade....
A VISIONARY BASS WITH AN INTIMATE AND UNLIMITED SOUND:
INTERVIEW WITH MARK EGAN
One of the reasons for the great love, respect and esteem that this extraordinary musician fully deserves, surely is his own ability to provide continuity to the development of electric bass as a melodic instrument even after the tragic departure of the great Jaco Pastorius....
JUST LIKE FLOATING
INTO THE STAR MATERIAL OF PROG:
The compositional substance, the coolness of their performances are all elements that have led us to believe (having listened to Crystals) that Shaman Elephant will definitely consolidate very quickly. They really can attract a wide public of competent ad well as curious listeners...

THE MUSICIAN OF
IL MUSICISTA DEI
INTERVIEW WITH MARK WADE
As a jazz musician with a launched career in classical music and clearly as a composer, Wade has proved to be one of the most distinctive voices as regards the transversal communication between seemingly distant musical universes...

QUANDO PROG E JAZZ CONVIVONO ALL’INSEGNA
DEL GROOVE E DELL'ELEGANZA
INTERVIEW WITH LORENZO FELICIATI
It would be an understatement to consider Lorenzo Feliciati simply as one of the best electric bass players out there. That’s because Lorenzo is not just one of the most creative performers of its own instrument; he’s mainly a curious and inventive musician...
