Rick Wakeman & Mario Fasciano
Stella Bianca alla Corte di Re Ferdinando
Mario Fasciano, a Neapolitan singer who uses the voice as another
instrument, and Rick Wakeman, the great keyboard musician of the legendary
group Yes, have been perfectly matched for a record that is Manna from
Recorded on the Isle of Man, the CD contains 8 new Neapolitan songs and it
is the result of a prodigious concurrence of a number of talented artists
that have somehow reached a propitious zenith of creativity here, in this
album. Exotic, Mediterranean, evocative, timeless, classic and classical,
and wonderful are a few of the adjectives I use to describe this exciting CD.
This record is a follow up to their 1989 album Black Knights at the Court of Ferdinand IV.
