Funk Infused Hard Rock Tunes from Riccardo Zezza Pardini

This musician from Livorno fuses together the best parts of funk rock and shred-tastic hard rock on his latest collaboration album ‘Il Cranio d’Oro’



Riccardo Zezza Pardini is no stranger to the stage nor to song writing. He knows his instrument like the back of his hand and has developed a compelling musical perspective through years of hard playing. His latest project is a collaboration with drummer and percussionist Leandro Bartorelli and bassist Matteo de Lucia, who help the artist search for the very core of his musical identity. The result of that search is the entirely self-produced album Il cranio d’oro (Golden Skull). As Riccardo says, he was just waiting for the right moment. And, at least for Il cranio d’oro, there’s no better time than now. Imagine super funky bass and soulful 70’s-funk falsetto backing vocals circa “Your Love is Like a Rollercoaster” from the Chili Peppers mixed with the wicked-Dimebag Darrell-style-shredding and you’ve got “Ho paura di affogare nel mare” track three on the new album. And that musical tone is definitely a theme on the album by Riccardo Zezza Pardini who likes to experiment by mixing his classic hard rock influences, ranging from the jazz funk “Strade” all the way to the balls-to-the-wall shredding of the Jimi Hendrix-inspired-“BlackGuitar”. The one constant on the album are the vocals, always delivered with precision and power, from the extremely compelling frontman himself. He just put on an epic performance at the regional finals of Emergenza Festival Italia in Livorno. Stay tuned to Emergenza.net for news about the show.
