Tonolo/Goldstein/Birro/Ciancaglini: Farfalle (2003)
Goldstein and saxophonist Pietro Tonolo coalesce for a series of delicately enacted melodies, marked by gracefully executed themes. A crystalline audio production embellishes the soloists’ melodic lyricism, augmented by pianist Paolo Birro and bassist Pietro Ciancaglini’s sympathetic support. The music breathes a refreshing sense of enlivenment and celebration, in a quiet sort of way.
The quartet paints lucid tone poems atop Mediterranean drenched motifs amid wistful lines and sparkling interplay. In fact, the music takes on a rather fragile appearance. You won’t find any filler material, as the artists intermix jazzy soloing with a sunny outlook, befitting the implications of what this record label is about. Recommended...
