She has defined the album a “crossover”, that starts from a jazz-like experience and transitions towards folk, pop rock and electronic. With East 75th Street, jazz singer Valentina Marino returns to publishing records after her latest project PhiLovesophy (feel Love, so feel).

Six original pieces, written by Valentina herself and composed with a band of talented Italian and American musicians, compose the body of the project. Lyrics and music born spontaneously born while sitting behind the keys of a piano and during guitar lessons make the disc as exciting as it is varied. “But most of all”, Valentina tells us, “they stem from a desire to return to old roots: those tied to folk and rock music, those I used to listen to with my family, those that inspired my passion for Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell”.
