Living in Volvo

This is Vinicio Capossela’s first live album. It has been recorded in October 1997 at Naima Club in Forlì and released the following year. The concert features a Macedonian brass band named Kocani Orkestar: this is the definite seal of Capossela’s love for Balcanian music, that became a proper way of feeling. That night was so memorable that nobody remembered it the following day – the concert lasted five hours and even the garbage men thought they were in a dream when they saw a singer, wearing a fur hat, leading a noisy, dancing parade while getting out of the club in the middle of the night and of the up-coming autumn.

A special mention for the album’s title: Liveinvolvo is a tribute to Capossela’s house, so it can be considered a “domestic” record, that properly explains his figure of “driving piano player” screaming «THAT’S ENTERTAINMENT!».

Liveinvolvo features some of Capossela’s beloved songs played in a new version, enriched by the music of Kocani Orkestar, and two cover songs: Estate, the only Italian jazz standard, written by Bruno Martino, and Il pugile sentimentale by Vladimir Vytsosky. It has been released not only on cd and tape, but also as a home video.
