In 2016 Dino Plasmati, guitarist and conductor, commissioned me an arrangement for his orchestra, LJP Big Band, with the aim to record it with the famous saxophonist, Bobby Watson. I wrote a chart of the well-known ballad, Over the Rainbow, an ideal situation for his beautiful saxophone sound.

This intense and wonderful beautiful collaboration with Dino, his orchestra and Bobby has been recorded in a disc, “Matera Encounter” published by italian recording label, Alfa Music, and that has been released on January 2018.
