Released on 29 July 2022, the first album as leader of the saxophonist and composer Fabio Tiralongo (tenor and soprano saxophone) assisted on the piano by Giovanni Mazzarino, one of his teachers and mentors, and by a quintet made up of some of the most talented musicians of the new Sicilian Jazz scene: Riccardo Grosso (double bass), Alessandro Borgia (drums), Andrea Iurianello (baritone sax) and Alessandro Presti (trumpet).

RAILA is the ancient name of Avola, the “hexagonal” city where Tiralongo was born and raised taking his first steps as a musician in the band, a land rich in history, beauty and contrasts that inspired the compositions of this work.

The six original songs plus a standard (It could happen to you) trace a territory in which rhythmic and stylistic versatility reflect a fresh and inspired musicality, respectful of an aesthetic that places elegance, the meaning of the phrase and the construction of dialogue. among its main assets.
