A few months ago, I went to Maurizio Sarnicola’s Goldmine studio two hours south of Naples and, with my German friend, the accordionist Hartmut Saam, and new Italian friends Fortunata Monzo (vocals), Giovanni Rago (guitar), Domenice de Marco (drums), Gianni Crescenzi (bass) and Mario Perazzi (engineer), we recorded this song.
It was a happy international co-operation which somehow made the song even sadder.
‘Europa, Mein Amour’ is released this week and can be downloaded on CD Baby and Bandcamp.
‘Some people claim I’m not quite the same
Since I became European…’
