Renowned accordionist Antonio Apicella, known by his musical moniker of Apus, has once again captivated audiences with his latest musical endeavour. Transforming the beloved Italian classic, 'Two Pisces in alto Mare' by Pino Daniele, Apus has infused the classic song with his signature jazz flair, breathing new life into an iconic piece of Italian music history.

Released earlier this month, Apicella's rendition of 'Two Pisces in alto Mare' showcases his unparalleled talent and innovative approach to music. Utilising the accordion as the centerpiece of the arrangement, he collaborates with a stellar ensemble of musicians, including Tommaso Pirabello on saxophone, Nicola Baldi on drums, and Francesco de Bonis on bass, to create a mesmerizing auditory experience.

With each note, Apicella and his ensemble create a musical journey, reimagining Pino Daniele's composition through a modern jazz lens. The famous melody of the song intertwines seamlessly with the added improvisational elements, offering a fresh perspective while maintaining the essence of the original piece. Throughout, Apicella's virtuosity on the accordion adds depth and texture to the music, complemented by the skillful performances of his fellow musicians.

More than just a cover, Apicella's interpretation of the beloved song serves as a heartfelt tribute to one of the titans of Italian music. By infusing the composition with his own unique style, he pays homage to Pino Daniele while simultaneously showcasing his own musical prowess and creativity. The result is a captivating fusion of genres that bridges the gap between tradition and innovation.

For fans of Pino Daniele, Apicella's rendition offers a fresh perspective on a beloved classic, inviting listeners to rediscover the magic of the original composition in a new and exciting way. Likewise, jazz enthusiasts will appreciate the masterful arrangement and the dynamic interplay between the musicians, which keeps the music vibrant and engaging from start to finish.
