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...

Aparticle: Bulbs

Giulio Stermieri (piano elettrico e Hammond) e Michele Bonifati (chitarra) son gli autori dei sette brani che danno forma a Bulbs opera prima di un interessante quartetto completato da Ermanno Baron e Cristiano Arcelli . I due musicisti costituiscono anche la dorsale elettrica dell'ensemble, il centro vitale dal quale si irradiano impulsi e provocazioni, idee e nuove direzioni. Perché se è vero che ogni composizione ha vita propria e caratteristiche ben definite, sembra altresì che ciascun brano funzioni principalmente come pretesto per esplorazioni sonore, per assecondare curiosità che espandano le forme, per provare combinazioni ardite.

Suoni stratificati e suoni che si accumulano, scansioni ritmiche non proprio canoniche, strumenti che occupano lo spazio con una densità vicina ad un impasto di colori vanno a tessere una trama ipnotica e coinvolgente utilizzando anche elementi extramusicali, come la voce di Herbert Marcuse che in «Liquid Language» si trasforma magicamente in ritmo e musica. Il disco chiude con «Racklad», a sorpresa una sorta di rock ballad condotta sul piano di una souplesse esecutiva carica di pathos.

Track Listing: No Way to Fill; Crashing Brand N'Ubuntu; Liquid Language; Bridal Veil Falls; Parasocial Activity; Nine Billion Density; Racklad.

Personnel: Cristiano Arcelli: alto saxphone; Michele Bonifati: guitar; Giulio Stermieri: Rhodes, Hammond; Ermanno Baron: drums.
