This new project was partially recorded in June 1993, engineered by Allan Holdsworth, as the first recording made in his newly built Brewery studio in Vista, California. The music was envisioned by Marcelli for an electric guitar as main soloist. Holdsworth could not play for contractual problems so the album was not finished. During the following years Marcelli kept playing Jazz world wide and moved from Los Angeles (1989) to New York in 1997 and then to Berlin in 2001. He always had in mind to finish his project "Stories". Years later he finally came into contact with Italian young and talented electric guitarist Frank Pilato, who also lived and played in Los Angeles too.
Frank took the challenge and responsibility to successfully record and finally finish the album. Pilato wanted also to contribute with a new composition and recorded with Marcelli an inedit guitar/drums duo! The band includes an exceptional rhythm section with Marcelli's long time collaborator pianist Mitchel Forman, plus bassists Gary Willis and Jeff Berlin! A very special project which embraces over 20 years of personal stories from 12-02-2021 on Spotify, Googleplay, Youtube and all streaming networks.
