The title "ROOMS" has two meanings. One is due to the fact that we have recorded this album playing in five separate rooms, including the studio corridor !...where the musician were not able to see each other, except those cases where two musicians were in the same room. It was a sort of challenge, if you think that most of the music you can listen here is improvised music. The other meaning is about the "genre" of music we have played. People are used to divide and call music in different genres, such as jazz, rock, funk, classical etc...but I believe that there are only two "genres" : the bad one and the good one...and just try not to play the bad one... For this reason I have called a bunch of good friends, from Italy, Hungary and USA...and simply asked them to come to the studio just bringing their own instruments and their...music. Some of them came with classical into their "music luggage", some with jazz, with rock, fusion, folk, ambient,...but nobody was aware of what we will have actually played together !...nobody had scores of my music before getting the studio, some of them met for the first time in the studio, and became friends there. Well, this album is the result of the recordings made form January 22 to 25, 2009, four days of friendship, good food, beer, dogs and...music. I hope you like it !
