Album Notes
PHIL WOODS, personally interested in the publication of this CD, writes the following liner notes:

“I believe that this is the definitive version of this piece. The performances are stunning and the improv sections perfectly realized...” (Phil Woods)

FINISDUO, by the saxophonist Gianni Bardaro and the pianist Mauro Patricelli, is an example of the blending of the elements of classical and jazz music. The performance is more than just the juxtaposition of two kinds of music. It requires the performers to embellish the written music as well as improvise at given sections, much in the spirit of jazz and in the true tradition of Baroque music in such a manner that the listener is often unsure where the written music stops and the improvisations take over. Together with works written by Gianni Bardaro and Mauro Patricelli themselves, Finisduo will perform the revised and newly engraved ‘97 edition of the Alto Sax and Piano Sonata, a "classic" cross-over work by the jazz-legend Phil Woods. The Bardaro – Patricelli Finis Duo is based in Copenhagen, where the two musicians met and merged their common cultural roots with their international experience.
