Lo Greco Bros present the concept Album: ‘Different Standards‘
The Concept behind the creation of an Album started in the 60’s. the idea was that the Artists had tale in music unlike while before what was recorded in a 33rpm disc was simply to list together individual tracks which had been sent to the Radios by the Artist’ Labels without a real logic or any attempt to link the tracks together.
Soon after, the audio cassette was invented, which soon joined the vinyl, and with the cassette the revolutionary idea to record on the cassette the favorite songs of several artists was born, nowadays known as the ‘Compilation’ or playlist, a sort of personalized collection created by the listener. the exchange of these cassettes began, with the custom made collections tailored to satisfy different genres and music tastes.
This project was conceived with the same idea in mind ! The album cover illustrates this concept graphically: a set of songs performed by different singers and played by different musicians as the many colours found in music. By definition a song played and re-arranged by different artists becomes a Standard. With the skills, the taste and the experience of Gianni and Enzo Lo Greco (Lo Greco Bros) have created continuity, like a rebirth of an intense experience. The mysterious power of music is and will always be able to evoke strong emotions and makes life more beautiful!
