Home Feeling


New Album Release

Home Feeling

“There is a saying… home is not a place, but a feeling, well… This music is made up of feelings, places, stories, people, meetings, all the small things that have found a place in my soul on my travels… Home Feeling!”

Written and produced by Rolff over a few months of intense traveling around the globe, “Home Feeling ” is the seventh album by the Italian composer and double bass player.

Rolff follows his artistic path aiming to create a positive musical language, a special blend of jazz and Afro-Cuban elements, sharing sounds and rhythms with a band of wonderful musicians: the Colombian pianist Hector Martignon, the Genoese percussionist Mario Principato and Nicola Angelucci on drums.
