Stefano Tirone (S-Tone inc.)

S-Tone Inc. has been for over ten years the primary music project of Stefano Tirone, musician from Milan (pupil of Sonny Taylor and Antonio Zambrini), whose first music experiences date back to the early 80’s, during the new wave era (with tracks included into "Gathered" and "Body Section", two compilations released by the magazine Rockerilla), but who, as a producer, starts working in the early 90’s, alternating house production to funky productions. The influence of the British acid jazz scene of the early 90’s and his deep love for the 70’s soul and jazz music are the foundations of the S-Tone Inc. project, that starts in 1992 with the track "Get Freaky Now", the received great appreciation in the UK and represents one of the earliest examples of made in Italy acid jazz music. His debut album was released in 1996 on the Milano 2000/Ishtar label under the title “Love Unlimited" and contains the track "Ainda Sonhar", a composition that as the forerunner of the nu bossa genre and that got included into tens of compilations all over the world. In 1997 he releases under the name Cosmorama a monothematic drum and bass project entitled "Space Odyssey". Mainly through the third album under the name S-Tone Inc., released in 2002 on Schema/Ishtar and entitled "Sobrenatural", he refines his style, made of Brazilian, soul and jazz influences, without forgetting the experiences that he’d made with various Italian and British DJ’s in the house music scene. He worked with Italian and British labels, such as Schema, Irma, Acid Jazz, Centrestage. In 2004, he produced Toco, a Brazilian artist, with the aim to revive the bossa nova tradition of the 60’ with an updated taste. Both “Sobrenatural” and “Instalação Do Samba” by Toco were released in France on the label Bonsaï Music. During 2004, he produced his new album “Luz Y Sombra” with the participation of various musicians from the Milan jazz scene and Brazil, with the intention to take a more acoustic direction than he had in the past, making a more discreet and minimal use of electronics. “Moon In Libra” is the fifth album by Stefano Tirone aka S-Tone Inc. It comes after a period of four years which was dedicated both to the production of “Outro Lugar” by Toco and to the search of a more mature and personal language. The album follows the same artistic path of the previous ones with a renewed passion for the Brazilian sonorities from the sixties, and is influenced by the soul jazz atmospheres connected to noir movies. The project confirms the participation of singers and musicians whom are well-known in the Milanese jazz scene: the singers Laura Fedele, Angie Brown and Manuela Ravaglioli on one side, the Brazilian Toco and Adi Souza on another. Furthermore the record features the well-known Rosalia De Souza and Kal dos Santos (from the band Mitoka Samba), whom play a special role in the production of the pieces which bear Toco’s signature, and Daniel Richards (who guested in Fedreghini & Bianchi’s project) performing in a reinterpretation of “Stormy”, influenced by the bossa nova and Bobbie Gentry’s folk. Among the tracks we find a cover of “My Only Man” by Piero Umiliani originally singed by Helen Merrill and here revisited in an uptempo key without losing the original orchestral mood. We also bring the attention to Marco Decimo's cello (who is Ludovico Einaudi's collaborator) who gives a touch of elegance and intensity to some pieces.
