Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

Cowboys from Hell: Big Fish

AAJ Italy Staff By

Sign in to view read count
Ascoltando questo Big Fish del trio Cowboys from Hell potrebbe venire in mente una parodia del titolo di uno dei celebri libri di Ian Fleming dedicati alla saga di James Bond: "Dalla Svizzera con Furore". Infatti i tre ragazzi che compongono il gruppo cercano di sbriciolare le regole convenzionali associate ad un trio con sax, basso e batteria.

Lo fanno ricorrendo ad un uso massiccio dell'elettronica che consente loro di alterare anche pesantemente le timbriche degli strumenti utilizzati. Lo fanno anche mettendo in gioco le regole delle composizioni. Infatti le loro scorribande sono incursioni adrenaliche sparate senza remore che ti arrivano sul viso senza alcun avviso premonitore.

La musica è piena di colori, piena di energia, libera da sistemi di ancoraggi. Se ne vola libera nelle vallate montane, cercando una sorta di catarsi che permetta a questi cowboy moderni di portare al pascolo le loro mucche, senza rischi di essere intercettate dalla finanza.
