Popular Italian crossover jazz vocalist Biondi is a huge star in his homeland and his cool blend of Latin grooves and smooth pop jazz and soul travels well. Here with his fine band he’ll be playing music from his best-selling 2006 debut album ‘Handfiul Of Soul’ including his hit ‘This Is What You Are’.
