Album Description

GleAM Records is proud to announce the release of Third Wave, the amazing debut of drummer Fabio De Angelis available on CD and digital download / streaming from 28 January 2022. Third Wave is a snapshot of the musical universe of the versatile musician and composer from Vicenza. His music shows an opening towards the demands of contemporaneity but also a profound respect for jazz tradition, whose linguistic codes he has studied for a long time. On the one hand the writing and on the other the interpretation of the songs and standards. The common thread that binds these two expressive instances is the 50’s and 60’s jazz tradition, an obsession that crosses the "third phase" of the drummer's stylistic exploration and to which he consecrates this first record. In this straight- ahead approach, however, there are several elements of freshness. The approach to sound, the metric modulations, the skilful use of dynamics frame the album within a contemporary post-bop where the clarity and balance of the rhythm section are flanked by the harmonic choices and improvisations of the soloists, closer to a controlled modernity. On the guitar we have Luca De Toni, a stable collaborator of the drummer in several projects. Graduated from the Berklee in Boston he had the opportunity to grow with the greatest masters of contemporary jazz. His way of playing gives, in fact, a modern look to the music through an iridescent harmonic spectrum in which the most orthodox solutions coexist and blend with the novelties of contemporary jazz. On tenor saxophone Robert Bonisolo, a musician who needs no introduction. Virtuoso of his own instrument, he is stylistically a coltranian, able to reconcile the lessons of saxophonists such as Michael Brecker and Bob Berg with the sound of Dexter Gordon. His meeting with the leader dates back to 2020 and gave rise to a musical collaboration that culminated in the realization of this project. On the double bass Ares Tavolazzi, a musician with a full sound, with a deep knowledge of the jazz tradition but who has explored other musical universes in his career thus reaching a personal synthesis that makes the sound very recognizable. In short, a true master. Tracklist 1 Tribulaçao (F. De Angelis) 4.48 2 Boplicity (C. Henry, G. Evans) 5.27 3 Lake Zurich (L. De Toni) 8.18 4 Beatrice (S. Rivers) 5.27 5 Diamond Boy (F.
