My name is Massimo “Super” Iannantuono, I’m the drummer of Blues Society, historical band created by the well known venetian bluesman Guido Toffoletti in 1976 with the laudable aim to spread the blues genre in the italian region. I reflected Guido’s artistic heritage after his death, tragically occured in the summer of 1999, and I created a discographical project which will be officially released – according to the latest rumours – on 19th March 2010 by EDEL label, in order to commemorate Guido’s death occured ten years ago. The project consists of the concretization of an album featuring nine songs characterized by an atypical musical language, pervaded by an original mixture of classical rock-blues and influences due to country, celtic, neapolitan, hawaiian, indian traditions thanks to the introduction of unusual instruments like sitar, tin-whistle, hornpipe, banjo, lap-steel guitar, violin, mandolin and many others. This project featured the participation, beside of some venetian musician, of nationally and internationally acclaimed artists like: Patty Pravo, Danilo Sacco (Nomadi), Aldo Tagliapietra (Le Orme), James Burton (Elvis Presley’s legendary guitarist), Glen White, Emanuele Brignola (Alex Britti’s band), Mario Fasciano (Rick Wakeman, Steve Morse, Ian Paice, Steve Hackett..), Mario Schilirò (Zucchero), Dougie Meakin and Dave Sumner (The Motowns, The Primitives), Antonio Maiello, Salvatore Esposito (Renzo Arbore’s Orchestra Italiana), Alessandro Patti, Walter Apa, Stefano Zabeo, Massimo Fantinelli, Gilberto Giusto, Andrea da Cortà, Margherita Orlandi, Davide Pieran. One of the songs will feature the unforgettable voice of Guido.. At the Patty Pravo’s tour’s opening concert in Azzano X (PN) on 26th June 2009 the album was officially introduced, together with the single “Set me free”, to a large audience featuring more than two thousand people. Blues will never die!
