“Like taking a sailing ship on the Mediterranean that somehow manages to stop in Mali, Jamaica, and Canada.
“Imagine if Sicilian chocolate were music”
Muorica is the brilliant follow up to Michael Occhipinti's award winning "The Sicilian Jazz Project"and creates an eclectic sound all its own. Bringing together Sicilian poetry and folk songs with his own interests in jazz, global grooves and chamber music, Michael Occhipinti has assembled a stellar cast to create his new Sicilian Project. Featuring the passionate vocals of Dominic Mancuso and Pilar and such notable guests as clarinetist Don Byron, and the Cecilia String Quartet, the album is also a showcase for Michael Occhipinti's inventive guitar sounds and his refusal to be defined by any one genre.
