Appreciated and highly regarded by the likes of Renzo Arbore, Maurizio Costanzo, Fiorello and Michael Buble with whom he duetted live in Rome in 2007 during Michael’s concert, Matteo Brancaleoni is now considered one of the leading Italian interpreters of the American ‘Songbook’.
His new album “New Life” was conceived from the encounter with the Roman writer and arranger Nerio Poggi (Papik), already a writing partner for Mario Biondi in his last two albums. Although filled with jazzy atmospheres “New Life” is also a classic blend of 6 great classics and 5 new original songs arranged with different moods and styles ranging from the elegant bossa nova of “How Am I Supposed To Live Without You” (made famous by Michael Bolton and Laura Branningan) to the latin vibes of “Copacabana” by Barry Manilow, going to a swinging version of “Bad Romance” by Lady Gaga, to the Burt Bacharach’ inspired original track “Us”, going to the captivating ballad “Fly Away With Me” to the jazzy-pop called “I Won’t Let You Go” to a new version of “Cosa Hai Messo Nel Caffe’’ by Riccardo Del Turco, ending with a clever reinterpretation of the successful R&B song by Eric Carmen “Never Gonna Fall In Love”.
A new look then for Matteo, a “New Life” as the lyrics in the Title track say, showing even more than his previous works a remarkable interpretation experience gained through the years,confirming Brancaleoni as one of the best Artist in his genre, Although remaining in the wake of great crooners likeFrank Sinatra or Dean Martin, but now showing clearer than before his absolute personal style. All in all, a very refined album of great elegance and energy, that can also give the listener intense and intimate moments.
