As Music News said "If he wasn’t amongst us already, somebody would have to invent Roberto Cassani, he’s such a blast of fresh air in a tired, self-regarding world." A little bit jazz, a little bit swing, a little bit blues, a whole load cabaret, with a splash of Tim Minchin and Tom Lehrer thrown in for good measure
Roberto Cassani is the delightful double-bass slapping child of a threesome between swing, rock ‘n’ roll and the musical cabaret of Milan. Joined by the Tickety Two, guitar maestro Owen Nicholson and renowned drummer Dave Clelland, and united by a love of their families, a laugh, 12 notes and good biscuits, they do what nobody in music seems to do: have a laugh. And make no mistake: these guys can play! Their first album was released earlier this year - produced by the legendary Martin Stephenson, it is a live session recorded in one day.
