Any composer can only be honoured to have one of his songs recorded by Renato SELLANI so you can imagine my happiness and enthusiasm when the great pianist suggested that we record a CD made up entirely of my music! We chose the songs together and after only one month were in the recording studio.
Sellani has been at it for over 60 years and is considered a master of the American, and now Italian, songbook.


Any composer can only be honoured to have one of his songs recorded by Renato SELLANI so you can imagine my happiness and enthusiasm when the great pianist suggested that we record a CD made up entirely of my music! We chose the songs together and after only one month were in the recording studio. Three songs are “oldies”: Quando m'innamoro came from Sanremo Festival in 1968. It was recorded soon after by Englebert Humperdinck with the title of A man without love and went to the top of the charts all over the world. In 2006 it went around the world again when Andrea Bocelli included it in his CD Amore. Ho sognato d'amarti was another hit recorded by Bruno Martino in the late . In 1958 Fred Buscaglione made a lovely recording of Sogno d'estate. Toccare il fondo, Waltz for Bi and La prima volta di tutto have been recorded by The Colours Jazz Orchestra. E se improvvisamente........., Una canzone tempo fa e Ave Maria are very new songs and have never been recorded before. Renato has interpreted my songs as he felt, while respecting the original melody and harmony, leaving his mind to fly free at his own inspiration. I think that, thanks to him, we have here a collection of gems and that this CD should be considered to be a book of poems rather than a mere album. Thank-you, Renato!

Renato Sellani was born in Senigallia in 1926. He came to jazz late, after studying political science at the University in Rome. His mother had been an opera soprano but he had never played music until he got hooked on jazz in the nightclubs of Rome. He says that he went to listen every night and began teaching himself piano at the home of a friend who owned an instrument. In 1958 he was invited to Milan by his friend and fellow musician Franco Cerri. In Milan Sellani joined the quintet Basso and Valdambrini, and he also became well known as a solo artist as well. Sellani was Chet Baker's first pianist in Italy, and later an accompanist for Sarah Vaughan and Helen Merrill. Sellani has been at it for over 60 years and is considered a master of the American, and now Italian, songbook
