EVEN NOT 4, released by the Italian Wide Sound label, is Stefania Patanè’s first album where she performs the role of a leader; she signs most of the arrangements in the album in cooperation with Luca Mannutza, as well as some new original compositions. The work has a contemporary and Afro-American orientation, with shades of bossa nova at times; the strength of melody keeps the priority and is remarkable throughout the album.

The overall impression the work gives off is that of a cohesive and solid band; far from the idea of the trio or quartet supporting the vocalist, for the voice, used as an instrument, is an integral part of the band: the primary goal is to serve music, by working out an own personal and original message.

A very special guest in Even Not 4 is Bob Stoloff, the American teacher famous all over the world for the release of many scat singing methods; he has also been a member of the Bobby McFerrin's Vocal Summit for many years; he sings with Stefania in Even Not 4 an a cappella version of "On green dolphin street".
