"TUA" (in Italian for 'yours') is the third recording by Naples-born talented singer/songwriter, Simona Molinari. The album has been released in September 2011 for Warner Bros. The first single "Forse" (in Italian for 'Maybe') showcases collaboration with Hong Kong-based jazz pianist Danny Diaz. The second single "In Cerca Di Te" (in Italian for 'Searching for You') is a popular Italian song from the 40's and is a delightful duet with Peter Cincotti, who is evidently looking for his Italian roots ! Peter sings and plays piano in a brilliant and ironic way. Peter is a primary guest artist also on "Lettera" ('Letter') and on his own song "Always Watching You" (from his East of Angel Town): lyrics are translated into Italian by Simona, who was born in the same year as Cicotti, 1983. She has written all the seven original tracks. The renowned jazz man Dado Moroni (Live in Beverly Hills and Humanity) joins in on "Povera Piccola Italia" ("Poor little Italy') along wth the above mentioned Danny Diaz. The general feelings turn around a beautiful, subtle and graceful musical expertise of the swinging jazz of the 20's and 40's. It's entertaining, it's pleasant and Simona and Peter shine together. Give this Cd a spin, you will not be disappointed.
