Aug 6, 2010* LP version now available for the acclaimed Guano Padano LP. First 50 shipped are on yellow vinyl.

Alessandro Steffana released his debut solo album to much acclaim on Important a few years back Since then he has worked as a member of Mark Ribot''s Ceramic Dog project as well as Mike Patton''s Mondocane.

Guano Padano, assembled by Alessandro Stefana, features guests Alessandro Alessandroni (renowned whisteler of the immortal Ennio Morricone western soundtracks), Gary Lucas (Captain Beefheart/Jeff Buckley guitarist), Chris Speed (clarinet player with Tim Berne, Uri Caine, John Zorn etc.) and, last but not least, the legendary Italian singer Bobby Solo.

Guano Padano’s music is a kind of road movie, unfolding between the scorching asphalt of Highway number 4 and the juicy smells of the peasant festivals so common in the Pianura Padana. It’s a dreaming mixture of rock, psychedelia, folk and country, jazz improvisations and Morricone hints. Alessandro "Asso" Stefana and Zeno de Rossi started to work together some years ago while playing in Vinicio Capossela’s band, of which they are still steady members. For this trip they are joined by Danilo Gallo, a double bass player with a dark, meaty, gutsy style, who has shared with Zeno various adventuresmerged in El Gallo Rojo collective, one of the most interesting experiences of Italian underground and independent jazz.
