The songs are inspired by a series of stops on the London Underground, hence the title "London Tube". Each station is a surprise and describing feelings, expectations, memories, intersections of people and emotions.
Claudio Fasoli represent a monument of Italian music of the past few decades. He is able to surprise us every time with new ideas and projects, thanks to an indomitable will to express music at the highest artistic profile. A unique ability to regenerate himself adapting to the course of events and to their incessant flow. Fasoli, thanks to his extraordinary musical sensitivity, is able to filter and process what surrounds us, pouring his emotions writing pages of music among the most significant of the landscape not only Italian.

After a long series of recording sessions with a purely acoustic instruments , at the head both of the Gammatrio that of the 'Emerald quartet, Claudio Fasoli, with his new project by C.F. FOUR, comes back to the use of electro-acoustic instruments, especially guitar, as already had done many years before, and along with guitarist Mick Goodrick.

"London Tube" is sometimes characterized by upheavals of time and timbre. Sometime appears as repetitive and redundant in a exasperated way and, at the same time, with an highly expressiveness. In other cases you can find acoustic songs of high poetry and touching interiority.
The asymmetrical and very sophisticated harmonic platform seems allude to the teaching of the great contemporary composers such as Kenny Wheeler and Wayne Shorter, both for sense of freedom that for love of risk.
The powerful and well-established compositional vein of the author, is recognizable and characterized by its strong lyricism and linearity, always original.
