"Brighter Times Ahead" is Marco Zenini's debut as a composer and bandleader. The ten tracks that compose the album create a journey colored with many overtones: growth and search for identity, life in a new country and the experience of returning to one's origins; a dreamlike and meditative journey. "Brighter Times Ahead" is a reflection on the present times and on chasing time, escaping the present moment. It is an impression of the quest to stop and observe in silence, to contemplate these screaming days and the echo they leave within us. The result is a positive and ironic intuition: in the space of a breath comes a profound awareness that man can improve his reality. The compositional idea behind the album is born out of the urgency to narrate emotions, to write music with an enhanced concept of community while adopting the intrinsic freedom of extemporaneous creation. The aftermath is music that is fluid and seamlessly integrates free improvisation with structured melodic formulas. The voice is entrusted with a special role, as primal medium of emotional expression and storytelling. Michael Moore is featured as a guest with his clarinet on five tracks; as a prime mover of the Dutch free and avant-garde scene, his influence permeates the whole album.
