Massimo Colombo, Maurizio Quintavalle, Enzo Zirilli: Acoustic Weather (The Music of Weather Report)
Dopo l'ottima prova dell'anno scorso in cui il trio aveva omaggiato Bud Powell in Powell to the People, Massimo Colombo e soci riscendono in campo, puntando questa volta al repertorio dei Weather Report.

In tutto otto brani tratti da quattro importanti album della band americana pubblicati tra il 1976 ed il 1985: Black Market ("Black Market," "Elegant People"), Heavy Weather ("A Remark You Made," "Teen Town," "Palladium"), Mr. Gone ("Punk Jazz," "Pinocchio") e Sportin' Life ("Face on the Barrom Floor"). Anche in questo caso il lavoro brilla per rigore, tecnica, eleganza e capacità di andare all'essenza delle composizioni dei Bollettino Meteorologico. Il tutto senza strafare o eccedere in sterili virtuosismi, ma attraverso un rispettoso lavoro di ri-elaborazione e di semplificazione acustica.
Una "rilettura" di matrice minimalista che piacerà sia a chi ha amato l'arte compositiva di Joe Zawinul o di Wayne Shorter perché potrà riscoprirne l'anima tematica più profonda, sia a chi per la prima si avvicina alla musica della band.

Tra le tracce più riuscite dell'album, la brillante rivisitazione della ballad "A Remark You Made" di Joe Zawinul.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
