Debut solo album by Italian guitarist Frank Pilato,
playing the music of drummer/composer Andrea Marcelli,
for a very special project, with a story long over 20 years...

After recording two critic acclaimed albums for Verve/Polygram "Silent Will"
in 1989 and for Verve and Lipstick Rec. "Oneness" in 1991, both featuring guitarist
Allan Holdsworth, Andrea Marcelli composed the music for "Stories".
This new project was partially recorded in June 1993 engineered by Allan Holdsworth
in his newly built Brewery studio in Vista, California. The music was envisioned by
Marcelli for an electric guitar as main soloist. Holdsworth could not play for contractual problems so the album was not finished.

During the following years Marcelli kept playing Jazz world wide and moved from
Los Angeles to New York in 1997 and then to Berlin in 2001, bringing with him the
project "Stories".

Some years later he finally came into contact with Italian young and talented electric
guitarist Frank Pilato, who also lived and played for a while in Los Angeles.
Frank took the challenge and responsibility to successfully record and finally finish
the album, in 2014, together with engineer Matteo Guasti at the Labella Studio.
Pilato wanted also to contribute with a new composition and recorded with Andrea
an inedit guitar/drums duo!
The band includes an exceptional rhythm section with Marcelli's long time collaborator
pianist Mitchel Forman, bassists Gary Willis and Jeff Berlin!

A very special project which embrace over 20 years of personal "stories"...
