Mauro Avanzini, Claudio Capurro, Claudio Lugo, Crista Alioto: La Volta Del Suono

No stars How we rate: our writers tend to review music they like within their preferred genres.

Here, three saxophonists and a vocalist perform live in the rooms of the Sottoporticato of the Ducal Palace in Genoa, Italy, which is touted to be an “an enormous airpsace”. - Judging by the color photo included within the CD insert, these rooms feature arched ceilings and multiple columns amid Italian architectural craftsmanship as the band investigates reverberate sounds and au natural effects along with the harmonious blending of peppery modern jazz style dialogue. Throughout, the listener will be treated to saxophone trio’s juxtaposed patterns atop Cristina Alioto’s wordless vocals, chant-like melodies and counterbalancing choruses as the musicians’ notes bounce from the floor to the ceiling, through columns and the seemingly expansive open spaces.

Granted, many of the segments contained within these fourteen parts are compelling, otherworldly or simply beautiful, yet the novelty wears a bit thin as the festivities progress. Perhaps an air of predictability or murkiness in concert with the unwavering echoes generate slightly monotonous overtones, where the music plays second fiddle to one’s aural senses. Unfortunately, the desired effect may have actually contributed to some of the shortcomings of this presentation, when viewed upon as a whole.
