Manuele Montesanti is a great keyboardist, producer and Yamaha product demonstrator from Rome, Italy.
Manuele put on a great show at this year's Music Messe in Frankfurt, Germany highlighting the MONTAGE and reface. He calls this song "Messe Blues" and it showcases both the great sound of MONTAGE and the electronic pianos from the reface CP (which he controls from the MONTAGE8 using the MIDI breakout cable that comes with every reface model). Manuele is a burning player and a wonderful person! Enjoy this killer performance from Music Messe 2017:
