L’ultimo viaggio di Billie | Billie’s final journey
Reno Brandoni returns to the illustrated album to give voice to another unforgettable jazz legend, Billie Holiday (1915-1959), accompanied by the exciting illustrations of Chiara Di Vivona. A passionate journey into the deepest depths of the blues, to tell the story of one of the greatest jazz singers of all time.
With her intensely dramatic voice, she embodied the true essence of the blues, imbued with the melancholy and fatalistic despair that characterized her own troubled life. Sixty years after her death, the legend of Billie Holiday is more alive than ever, and Lady Day’s voice resonates with the tragic and wonderful essence of life.
He has collaborated with great guitarists like S. Grossman, J. Renbourn, D. Baker and D. Van Ronk. In 2000 he founded the website Fingerpicking.net and the trade magazine Chitarra Acustica. He has released numerous CDs. For Edizioni Curci he has published ‘The King of Blues’, ‘The Night They Invented Rock’, ‘An Evening of Classic Jazz’, ‘Nursery Rhymes to Feel Grownup’, and ‘Billie\’s Last Journey’.
