“Gente a Sud” is the debut album of jazz trio Amanita, produced and distributed by Rome-based label Zonedimusica. The music is permeated by mediterranean sounds, accompanied by a restless feeling of melancholy and an asymmetrical and energetic rhythmic texture. Lyrical moments alternate with rhapsodic ones, linearity is injected with inventive overlappings, and structure is juxtaposed with free-form; the album is constantly exploring a synthesis between contemporary jazz and far-away roots. Original compositions are rounded out by two new standards revisited from a jazz and improvisation point of view: a smooth version of Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy the Silence,” and a sharp, infused reinterpretation of “Centro di Gravità Permanente” by Franco Battiato.
