Ciro Manna - New Album 'XY'

The Italian rock and jazz guitarist Ciro Manna has released his second studio album, titled XY.  In contrast to the fusion-funk vibe of his debut album Feel N’ Groove, the new album has a jazz-rock orientation and features a stellar cast including guest performances from Andy Timmons, Paul Gilbert and Guthrie Govan!  Toto drummer Simon Phillips and acclaimed session bassist Lelan Sklar feature on six of the tracks, with the remaining tracks being played by the Ciro Manna Trio (Ciro, drummer Antonio Muto and bassist Marco Galiero).  XY also features the vocals of Illaria Palmieri and Patrix Duenas on ‘Fear & Fire’ and ‘Secret Potion’.
