“When I started the music project called “James Kahn” I was searching for a new way to fuse italian melodic disco-dance with funky electronic music, with a touch of rap.
For this production I called my friend Kenny Claiborne, already involved in “The Armed Gang” project, as singer for an unusual vocal performance.
The name of this productions was inspired by the great american actor James Caan.
To add an artistic touch I asked a friend, today recognized artist, Anna Pennati, to create a fascinating painting to be used as cover, still enchanting after years.”
