‘I would like to thank you for your great support and I wish you and your families a Happy Christmas sharing this video I just released. It’s a funny remake of ‘Jingle Bells’ featuring Enrico Buttol on vocal drums and me on bass.’
Alberto’s latest album “Three Wise Monkeys” was released on October 1, 2012 by Any And All Records with worldwide distribution [Nightmare Records, Disk Union, Power Prog, MediaStar, BTF.it etc.]. The instrumental progressive rock metal song features ex Dream Theater member Kevin Moore [OSI, Chroma Key], Tommy Ermolli [Twinspirits guitar player] and Paolo Valli [session drummer for many famous italian artists].
Half instrumental and half with vocals, Rigoni’s third solo album is thematically centered around the Japanese folk legend of the Three Wise Monkeys and further refines the stylistic contrasts and progressive spirit characterizing 2011’s Rebirth [Nightmare Records], concretely separating the mellow jazz, rock fusion, and ambient from the assertive melodic and hard rock and developing each extreme into Rigoni’s most aggressive and most delicate material. His distinctively kaleidoscopic bass playing and compositional grace smoothly passes across borders and carries traits of each of its components, becoming less of a solo project based around the bass guitar than a progressive rock experience.
The album also boasts contributions from great special guests: Göran Edman [ex Yngwie Malmsteen, John Norum, Brazen Abbot], Jonas Erixon [Alicate], Kevin Moore [ex Dream Theater, OSI, Chroma Key], Mark Cross [Outloud, ex Helloween, Firewind], Federico Solazzo [Alexia], Alessandro Bertoni [Aphelion], Mistheria [Bruce Dickinson, Rob Rock], Tommy Ermolli [TwinSpirits], Simone Mularoni DGM, Empyrios], Paolo Valli [session drummer], Paco Barillà [Daniele Liverani], Sebastian Persini [Solo artist, session drummer].
