Almost Midnight

The flawless production blends classic soul, funky R&B with modern dance groove and its sonic achievement is engineered by the legendary sound mixer Tommy Vicari (Quincy Jones, Prince, Barbra Streisand, George Duke, Stanley Clark, Big Phat Band, Tena Marie, Lee Ritenour, Patrice Rushen to name a few.)

Songwriters such as the legendary late Rod Temperton (R&B, funk, disco band Heatwave, whose hit songs included “Boogie Nights” and “Always & Forever”, Michael Jackson “Thriller”, “Off the Wall”, ”Rock with You”, no name a few) and outstanding singer, songwriter, musician and lyricist Jeffrey Osborne (former drummer and lead singer of the American R&B/Soul group L.T.D.), joined Tommy and Filippo in bringing forth a project to be reckoned with.
