Domenico Modugno is one of the more charismatic figures in the world of Italian music. By co-writing "Nel Blue Dipinto Di Blue (Volare)," he also cemented his place in Italian pop history by coming up with an internationally recognized smash. This live performance documents that song and many of his others, which vary from that same sort of bouncy pop to moodier, groovier works that are more R&B influenced. Although nothing is as catchy and fun as "Volare," this is still a solid collection of Italian pop along those lines. Just be careful of the track listing, which seems to have a few significant mistakes.
