It seems to be like a view into the studio: someone is working, thinking about things, picking up the guitar, sitting down at the piano. Songs come into being, associations follow the inspiration of the moment. Memories and reflections from a private perspective, personal, appreciative, emotional. “Nell’attimo” (At the moment) is the sketchbook of a cantautore who looks for diversity in small things, in the clarity of touching, melancholic songs. It is a celebration of the moment, sung with the devotion of a musician who can capture the world in words and melodies. Pippo Pollina is about intensity and presence, but not necessarily just about harmony. After all, not everything is calm, not every song is a pat on the back, even if reconciliation could be a leitmotif in his music.

By looking over the shoulder of everyday peoples life with their ambivalence, right up to the stages of his own career, which have established him in the musical present over almost four decades. “In the beginning it should have been a best-of album, a revisiting of my songs,” remembers Pippo Pollina about the development phases of “Nell’attimo”. “I have made at least 24 records, some are more than 30 years old. But then I had composed so many songs. The album was written within two weeks, eight songs are new, plus the Italian version of a song by Element Of Crime. And then there is 'Aspettando che sia mattina', the first track from my first album, which I recorded in November 1986 and this one opens the album again. It is a song that was written for a friend with whom many hopes and dreams are connected me to this day."

The album “Nell’attimo” is a determination of position with topics that still concern Pippo Pollina today. It's about the relationships between people, man and woman, parents and children, about friendship, also about one's own place in the world and about the contrast between poor and rich countries, up to the inability to compare prosperity with poverty to be able to deal with. There are just a few passages where Stefania Verità (cello), Gianvito Di Maio (accordion) and Roberto Petroli's clarinet replenish the songs, this album is exclusively designed as a solo album that unfolds ist power through the compositions, the voice accompanied with an instrument. It is also the starting point for a solo tour that Pippo Pollina will take through the halls and theaters through Europe spring 2024.
