"Sandra" "As I start to introduce myself, I find I have too much to say and am almost too excited to say it ...... Do you believe in fairytales? I have always believed in them and now I know that they are real. I am here telling you about myself because one of my greatest dreams has come true. I grew up feeling myself to be a citizen of the world. I have travelled widely since I was a child, when I also started to discover the joys of music and art. I feel the same curiosity now as I felt then and I am still amazed by all the wonderful things that surround us. As a child, I was very restless and I haven't really changed. My mind and body are always on the move, seeking to discover the infinite experiences that the world offers us! I started by playing classical music on the piano, then at 18 I took up the saxophone and my passion for jazz was born. Over the years, I have moved on from music to what is my real passion and has become my work. I am an interior decorator and I bring my creativity to everything I do. Now I have brought this gift back to my music and to this CD that is an expression of me. I hope you like it and that it inspires you. If not, you know where to find me to tell me what you think! I love figurative art and painting is like cherries to me - I'm mad about both of them!!! Perhaps this is because one of my favourite paintings is 'Cherries' by Bartolomeo Bimbi. We share the same surname, which may explain why I eat so many cherries....I suggest you look at this painting - you'll devour it with your eyes! I often dream of living in different historical eras. If there really was such a thing as a time machine I'd volunteer to go on a great long journey. I imagine that I am a lady in another time (that is the joy of dreaming!). Do you know the works by G. Boldini or S. Lega? I find them very beautiful, they give a real sense of their time and yet I also think they can be integrated perfectly into our time. 'IT´S ME' is my first solo musical experience. I was nervous when I started with but the skills of all those who worked with me to produce this CD gave me the courage and the spirit to continue. Some of the songs are soft, others are a bit wilder... rather like me' 'Credits': 'Recorded at the Artestudio53 studios in Sesto Fiorentino (Florence) February 2007 A special thanks to all those who made this CD possible and made it such an enjoyable, professional experience, to the msuicians for their extraordinary skills, to Franco Poggiali Berlinghieri for his invaluable collaboration, to Andrea Mati for his precious advice, to William McAdoo for being so helpful and amusing, to Federico Chellini for the graphics.
