Guitarist and singer-songwriter Adelmo Fornaciari, better known by the moniker Zucchero, built a following in his native Italy with his unique brand of adult contemporary pop–a following that expanded internationally as his career progressed. Zucchero's sound blends radio-ready melodies with equal doses of rock, blues, and a light, often mellow feel on his ballads and love songs. ALL THE BEST is a re-release of the artist's 1996 hits collection. Geared specifically to American audiences, this release of ALL THE BEST includes some of Zucchero's best-loved tunes (such as "Senza Una Donna" and "Wonderful Life"), and wonderful guest performances from the likes of Paul Young, Miles Davis, and Luciano Pavarotti.
