Carlo Mombelli’s STORIES was recorded live in studio using vintage microphones from the 1940s and mastered on reel- to- reel tape machines.
The ensemble for this recording was Daniel Pezzotti on cello, Adrian Mears on trombone, and Dejan Terzic on drums, a quartet that Mombelli has been playing with in Europe for the last four years.
For this recording he travelled to Switzerland with Mbuso Khoza, a traditional Zulu singer who improvised over the chamber quartet music. Unlike the schooled European musicians in the band, Mbuso learnt his music on the mountains of Kwa-Zulu Natal while herding his father’s sheep.
