Lo spazio non e' vuoto come sembra....
Peppino | 12/06/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

" allora abbiamo fatto tutto questo mundo invano! Hehe!What I mean , there is a lot of musics traveling around in "space", I keep thinking of a thought on Eric Dolphy,putting his wonderful flute-sounds into the breeze, hoping they would continue the journey into the space-time continuum!The "classic sounds " of the post bop , impressionistic vibes/piano quartettos (most prominently represented in Bobby Hutcherson's Blue Note recordings) mix with the soundtrack musics of the Italian genius pedigree,~modal melodies and echoes of what is called"cool jazz"...and ~ "Ecco!..ecco il jazz che cercavi!"
A nice recording I hope does not slip through the cracks, Schema Records, the labor of love of Nicola Conte, has given us this 1998 recording, sounds looking back at the past without any of the neoconservative trappings of the *Marsalis/Stanley Crouch cabal* Evil little fellows all, hehe! Fresh sounds, good for the soul.The liner notes will detail more for you the compositions within in quite nice detail, but I must mention in particular, the centerpiece IMO,
a glorious reading of the soundtrack composition
"Love Theme from Spartacus"(guest Nicola Stilo plays beautiful flauta in augmentation of the quartetto on this track.Guest Gaetano Partipilo is also featured on the Paul Horn composition, "Mr.Bond" on alto saxofone. Another highlight, as is a cooking version of Michel Legrande's "The Windmills of Your Mind". I do not denegrate the original compositions of the quartetto, they are fine and in the tradition, without immitation. More a tribute.The interplay between the members of the grupo is , as cliche dictates I say, "telepathic".
And solos are not the usual "Berklee School patterns" too many modern neoclassicists display , but are melodic stories as told in the tradition of the old masters! (Hey, I would love this cd even if these "fratelli musicisti" were not Italiani, hehe!)These sounds too will be forever traveling in space, I hope the other galaxial creatures will hear these sounds and forgive the Terrans for putting Chuck Berry's "Johnny Be Good" in the space capsule instead of the beautiful sounds we can make! (smiles)Viva la musica!"
