With this first album, Alter Ego take a journey through their musical history. The journey starts from the roots of their territory, the province of Trento, and crosses over to the roots of American music. On the one hand tradition, on the other gospel. Folk songs are their soul and each of them boasts an intrinsic, almost 'genetic' link with the mountains: each of the nine members has in fact for years lent his or her voice to the repertoire of traditional songs we all know. Alter Ego, however, now concentrate on contemporary music and have also been fascinated by gospel. Between black gospel and white gospel, the album features "Down to the river to pray", made famous by the King's Singers, and "Jesus gave me water", from American Bluegrass, from Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, a harmonisation taken from the first album by the vocal quintet Alti & Bassi (Il Mito Americano, 1998). After singing the local and American traditions, the leap is pleasant towards two other destinations: on the one hand the Cetra Quartet, which is here paid homage with a cheerful version of "Un bacio a mezzanotte" (elaboration by C. Favaro), and consequently the Italian music of the 1940s with "Conosci mia cugina" (E. Balasso) and "Tu vuò fà l'americano" (elaboration by F. Donadoni), on the other hand jazz music and American pop of the 20th century with a journey in which Alter Ego accompany us between the famous "I got rhythm" by Gershwin (elaboration by F. Donadoni) and "Only you" by the Platters (elaboration by A. Schirò for Alti & Bassi, Medley, 2005) up to the very popular "Don't worry be happy" by Bobby Mc Ferrin (elaboration by C. Favaro) passing also by "Blackbird" and "Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da" by the Beatles and by "M.L.K." by U2.
