《From the CD review》

The latest album by Alessi, one of the "Gods" of the trombone world who has been the principal player of the New York Philharmonic since 1985. Although it was recorded last year's recital in Japan, it has a high degree of perfection, with multiple performances and separate recordings such as GENEPRO (actually the GENEPRO sound source is not used [Proartemujike supplementary note]) ing. The contents centered on the original songs of the same instrument, including the classics such as Serotsuki and Boza, are ideal for the basic library of enthusiasts. While making full use of exquisite vibrato, the performance is sung for a long time with a warm sound, and the smooth legato is pleasing to the ear. The technique is of course brilliant. In particular, there are no words for the transcendence of Pryor's "Air Valier". (Buraabo July 2012 issue Katsuhiko Shibata)

Consists of live recordings of recitals held in Nagoya, Osaka, Fukuoka and Tokyo in January 2011. Hiroshi Nagao's accompaniment is exquisite and agile. Of course Alessi's trombone is also amazing. However, it does not give the impression that it is overly technical, and the sound quality, nuances, and expressions are truly rich in musicality. (CD Journal July 2012 issue)
