The love for Rhythm & Blues and Soul, the styles of music mostly appreciated by Mario, drew him towards a precise music repertoire, in particular some of the most representative related artists (Earth Wind & Fire, Donny Hathaway. Billy Paul, Luther Vandross, Lou Rawls, Aretha Franklin, Eryka Badu, Will Downing…….

When he and his producer decided together on the repertoire, Mario doubted he might be able to reproduce stylistically songs of the classic American repertoire such as “Slow Hot Wind” and “On A Clear Day”, or even “A Handful Of Soul”. The result indicates otherwise.

In this album, he not only delivers convincing interpretations, but his voice adds a different colour to the music.
