CD "Live at the Metropolitan Room NYC" has been nominated in the Live Performance Album Category in the 13´┐½ Independent Music Awards (USA).

This is the second SLAM release for Giancarlo Mazzu' and Luciano Troja who appeared alongside US reedsman Blaise Siwula on "D'istante 3" (SLAMCD 537). On this new recording the duo play a great selection of standards, given their own personal treatment recorded, as the title states ´┐½ "Live at the Metropolitan Room" in New York City, contemporary "home" of the Great American Songbook.

It is the third CD in the duo's critically acclaimed series dedicated to the jazz standards repertoire and the first recorded live. Mazzu' & Troja seek to capture the essence of the songs, as well as the unique atmosphere of the venue - a stage where the great Broadway stars perform nightly - carrying it in their creative improvisation.

The performance presents an original approach to the music and a tribute to the American Songbook through the personal background of the two musicians, the Italian melodic counterpoint, the spontaneous composition and the jazz tradition.
