Feedback: CLAUDIO VENA - La Vita E Un Circo A Great Example for Our Days. When cultures live together and speak each other, then our future is safe. The example of Canada (French, English and so on) becomes blood and flesh and music through the musical project of Master CLAUDIO VENA. His COSMIC COWBOY ORCHESTRA revisits with a so original style and refined arrangements the history of tango and South-American music, with a classic taste, through the historical life of circus, the magic of the best soundtracks atmospheres and the most right modern electronic bits. All sustained by an incredibly creative vein deeply rooted into pure art. To be listened to with your eyes laughing and your ears crying. And your heart living. Preferred tracks: 1 Fantasia Capriccioso - 9 La vita E un Circo 5 Tangorella

Feedback: There will never be too many good things to say about this album. The tracks are perfectly arranged, the music is fresh, haunting, lively, moody, theatrical, drunken, enchanting, fleeting, captivating - a roller coaster ride that I want to go on again and again. When you listen to it once, it only makes you want to keep the cd on loop. The musicians have a talent for being individually stylistic and playful while never once detracting from the whole. Please produce more and continue to experiement!

Feedback: Am Kenny Wako, one of the radio Jockeys on JOY Radio 89.6FM here in the warm heart of Africa, Malawi. Am proud to tell you that your music has changed the format of our radio at the same time introducing a new era to the listener. Most radio stations are used to playing mid tempo to slow love songs during lunch hour but we at JFM 89.6 have given the listener something new and better during lunch hour. Our mid day programme is called 'The Digest' and we play jazz music during this time, something which the Malawi people have never experienced before nad now they are glued to our station because they are gauranteed to hearing something new and learning a new culture through music. Your music is appreciated very much here in Malawi. Thank you very much...you have made a change in Malawi. ....Kenny Wako..........

Feedback: This album is surprisingly diverse in its roots and exciting in execution in this slightly romantic, adventerous record filled with charm. Claudio Vena is a superlative composer who understands the fragile dance between the sophisitcated and the fun sides of music. It draws on every major musical genre and ends up raising your eyebrows once or twice, but in the end you'll be swaying lightly across the living room floor with your shoes off.

Feedback: This is a hard album to classify as it has so many diverse and wonderful musical elements to it. Just listen to that great deep sounding viola, the lighter violin and the accordion to name but a few. The inclusion of Jazz, Latin (those tangos simply draw one in)and that easy listening feel make this an album for all times. Tony Bates

Feedback: Claudio Vena establishes himself as a major international soloist with the new La Vita E Un Circo. Already accomplished as a conductor, composer and recording artist, Mr. Vena can also now be recognized as a global musical virtuoso. His embrace of three different instruments further proves his amazing versatility and proficiency. Though not necessarily a mainstay in rotation on the World Party, La Vita E Un Circo is perfect for romantic and laid back moments.
