in 2019 I have released 3 albums and 3’s only September, but for this year I shall stop here! Why?

Because on 14th September 2019 I am releasing my monologue with double bass “Robertografia”. It’s the result of many months of conversations with and learning from my friend, musical idol and mentor Danny’s thompson. It’s honest music paired with honest words, straight from the heart. I’m releasing it on what would have been the birthday of my adored dad Marino Cassani, and I hope that like him, this work is true, unique, genuine, funny  and mad as a hatter. Ciao.

Tickety Best of Released 20th August ‘19 

Sometimes, you just need to hear something silly! Rock-a-silly, Swing-a-silly, silly billy, whatever... Roberto Cassani and the Tickety2 (Dave Clelland on drums and Owen Nicholson on guitar) had the job done in 2 short years 2014 and 2015.

Many festivals, gigs, radio, and 2 albums were done at lightning speed in those 2 short years, but despite the physical copies of the albums being available on this site (before they sell out), and a few videos having appeared on YouTube, no trace of Tickety was left for the streaming world....until now! 

The best of Roberto Cassani & the Tickety2 2014-2015 is out Tuesday 20th august 2019 on every streaming platform and of course to download on this site. Put it in your music collection because soon, probably very soon, you’re gonna need it! Remember to be silly! Ciao.

2019!...E’ primaveraaaaaaaaaa! 

It’s 2019! I know it’s been 2019 for 3 months already but I’ve been busy. I’ve had a few double bass gigs everywhere from jazz to blues to folk to goodness-knows-what-key-we-are-in...

then in February I was in Montreal playing at Folk Alliance as an invited Official Artist, which was fun.

this month I finished my year-long collaboration with my musical (and beyond) mentor Danny Thompson. I have a batch of songs from the heart and I’m going to put them out, so stay tuned. 

How do you do that? Join the mailing list! It’s imperative (well, advisable...well, it would really make me pleased, thank you). Lotsa love. Ciao e grazie.
