Gianpaolo Gallian’s Musical Odyssey:

A Close Look at "A Good Crossing"

After two successful solo albums, Gianpaolo Gallian returns with "A Good Crossing". In this piece, we explore the album’s nuances, the artist’s writing process, and the overarching themes of this musical journey.

Album critics should take note: “A Good Crossing” is a conceptual masterpiece. Over the course of 12 tracks, Gianpaolo Gallian leads the listener on a healing trip through a wide range of emotions, from despair to hope. The songs feature a wide range of musical styles, from the synthpop and pop-country of the ’80s and ’90s to the dark, almost metal atmospheres and acoustic compositions of today. Thanks to the wide range of musical influences on display, this journey will appeal to listeners of all tastes.

Gallian stresses the importance of experiencing “A Good Crossing” as a whole, rather than as a compilation of singles. This method encourages listeners to get lost in the album’s larger story. Each song was written with consideration for the others, resulting in a cohesive whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.

The making of this record took over a year of thought and deliberation from everyone involved. Gianpaolo Gallian carefully chose each song’s subject, wrote the music and lyrics, selected the instruments used, and created the album cover. The music’s depth and quality reflect the artist’s commitment to their trade.

One of the album’s tunes, “Spending Too Much,” demonstrates the range of Gallian’s musical inspirations. The song fuses Adult Album Alternative with ’80s-style pop/rock in the vein of performers like Peter Gabriel and David Bowie. The album’s sound is distinct and interesting thanks to the blending of these influences.

The dedication Gallian has to his craft is palpable all through “A Good Crossing.” He did everything from writing and performing the music to programming and producing the record. The artist’s willingness to get his hands dirty demonstrates his commitment to his work and his desire to take his audience on an intimate trip.

"Easy Jams for Drum Set"

More than a drummer's album

"Easy Jams for Drum Set", Gianpaolo Gallian's second solo album, is indeed more than just an album for drummers. Despite its title, in fact, it features eight pieces in different styles, from funk to gospel, fusion to pop, easy listening to modern jazz, the whole gamut of musical colors is well represented here, and in this case the cover artwork is really an indication of a colorful, entertaining and differentiated product. The eight tracks are at the same time enjoyable yet they bear an almost-hypnotic quality, while some of them are definitely radio-tailored, such as the ABBA-sounding "Midday Moon", and the smooth jazz single "Almost There". "Modern Times" challenges the listener in a medium-jazz waltz round that resembles the sound of Tony Williams' piano trio, while the single "Groovalicious" brings us back to the early stages of drum-centered, latin-tinged fusion of the eighties. The whole product was conceived, played, programmed and produced by Gallian, and by no mistake drummers also get eight bonus minus-drum mixes to play-along with (hence the title). We recommend you to take a good listen to the product, you might find some tasteful gems that might stay in your mind for an unexpectedly prolonged time. Have a good run at "Easy Jams for Drum Set"!

"Easy Tunes for Drum Set (With Play-Alongs)"

Gianpaolo's debut solo album

"Easy Tunes for Drum Set (With Play-Alongs)" represents Gianpaolo Gallian's debut as a solo artist. The album features eight tracks in different styles, all with the common denominator of being released in a package expressively addressed to young drummers out there. The intent of the author here is to create an "edutaining" package, that is at the same time educational in purpose and entertaining in shape. The eight tracks flow one after the other very well, starting with the single "Thirst", reminiscent of Yellowjackets and Phil Collins, going to the quasi-Steely Dan "Mr. H.B." (later become "Humphrey Bogart" in a group rendition by Lineaquattro), the Toto-ish "Push Forth", the traditional-gospel sounding "The Lord Is Good", to the smooth jazz single "Easy Come Easy Go", with notes of Brian Culbertson. Everything here is conceived, played, programmed and produced by the author, who lets some drums be played by the young drummers also with the presence of eight bonus minus-drum mixes in the package at no additional cost. Every drummer who buys the album and records a video on YouTube will get the chance to be featured on Gianpaolo's Official YouTube Artist channel, just by sending him the link to their videos.
