Alex Puddu is one of the most direct and creative artists and composers of our day.
A multi-instrumentalist with visions and skills of vintage-styled groove, who explored the world of ’70s porno on previous records released for Schema Records, the original score of “The Golden Age of Danish Pornography”, and the cinematic jazz-library trilogy “Registrazioni al Buio”, “In the Eye of the Cat” and “The Mark of the Devil” with the legendary vocalist of maestro Morricone, Edda Dell’Orso
Alex Puddu also stepped out with an even more classic R’n’B groove and soul with the albums “Soul Tiger”, featuring New York’s Latin-soul singer Joe Bataan, and “From The Beginning”, with vocalist Lonnie Jordan from ’70s funk band War.
In 2018 Alex Puddu released on his label Al Dente “The Gambler” the latest work, a strong set of songs, inspired by a mixture of the early 60s sound of doo-wop vocal harmonies, together with R’n’B and a hint of jazz, soundtracks and surf references. Featuring once again Edda Dell’Orso On Vocal with a brilliant orchestration and vocal harmonies arrangement from maestro Giacomo Dell’Orso.
Early 2020 will see Alex Puddu with a new album on Schema Records “Discotheque”: a strong set of Jazz-Funk, Soul and Boogie, with a ’78-80s retro-inspired production, featuring on vocals Duane Hobson, Sawa and Gene Robinson Jr., lead vocalist of the legendary Philadelphia soul funk band Breakwater.
