about

Way Out is a 2008 studio album by Alessandra Celletti, the Italian composer/pianist whose previous CDs include acclaimed interpretations of works by Glass, Satie and Gurdjieff.
Way Out is Alessandra's third album of original material, following Overground (1997) and Chi Mi Darà Le Ali (2006). Recorded in Rome in 2007, it explores several musical styles including vocal tracks sung by Alessandra, as well as her exquisite solo piano compositions. She is joined on most of the tracks by drummer Fabio Ferri, while Renzo Pin provided English-language lyrics.
Stand-out tracks include Dear To Me, Burning and Hundred Dreams, the latter complemented by a brilliant animated video clip made by Tony Sbarbaro. A unique set that defies classification, the album also features one bonus song, the beautiful title track from Alessandra's previous artist album, Chi Mi Darà le Ali.

Reviews:
"Way Out is really something new, an album of wayward songs featuring just voice, piano and drums. Alessandra's vocals are brittle and beautiful, at times spectral and shot through with melancholic joy. While it's hard to single out the best songs, the oblique nursery rhyme Hundred Points and the breathless Burning are two of them. Another masterpiece from Celletti - strange, touching and extremely personal" (Rockerilla, 02/2008)
"A remarkable work - very brilliant" (Greg Lake, 04/2008)
"Celletti is a classically-trained pianist with an extensive pedigree, and my goodness you can tell. A very good album, and an interesting mix - there are still plenty of classically influenced pieces here, but these are staggered with tracks that toy with contemporary songwriting and arrangements, including raw and occasionally thrilling drum tracks. The wild and tumbling Burning rocks, and Hundred Points evidences the ambition of the songs she has written here" (SubCulture, 1/2008)
