On the new album of the harmonica player Giuseppe Milici, The Look Of Love, the artist has worked with Nerio “Papik” Poggi and Fabrizio Foggia to the arrangements as well as a large group of special guests such as: Neja, Fabrizio Bosso, Tom Gaebel, Walter Ricci Francesca Gramegna, Alan Scaffardi, Valeria Milazzo, Ely Bruna, Roberto Gervasi, Moreno Viglione and Marcello Sirignano. Giuseppe Milici, with this disc, traces a path between those melodies that over the years I have most excited, as The Shadow Of Your Smile“, the theme of the movie Rocky Gonna Fly Now, the soundtrack of the film Singing In The Rain, I Will Survive, Summer and the title track the Look Of Love, all replicated strictly with the Papik sound!
