Gonzalo Rubalcaba: Borrowed Roses
Borrowed Roses testimonia la nuova primavera artistica di Gonzalo Rubalcaba, già protagonista di recenti opere di valore. Questo album del pianista cubano costituisce una delle rivisitazioni più eleganti e originali degli standard jazzistici proposte in questo decennio. Da "Lush Life" a "Very Early," l'ispirata eplorazione dell'universo canzone è sostenuta da un'invenzione su due livelli che pur rispettosa dello spirito originale procede parallelamente su piani sovrapposti.

Il fine è quello di cristallizzare in un attimo di diafana bellezza la melodia per ricrearla con colori nuovi. Il filo conduttore è il rispetto della tradizione immersa in un'attualità vibrante, che rilegge con occhi maturi la storia del jazz moderno.

L'estro e la creatività fanno il resto, elevando questo disco rispetto ai progetti mainstream della discografia contemporanea.

Album della settimana.
