Arbe Garbe: Complete Communion Il nuovo lavoro dei friulani Arbe Garbe, in vinile, è una rilettura di un classico di Don Cherry come Complete Communion.
Nel primo lato del disco troviamo i due temi del disco originale, "Complete Communion" e "Elephantasy," riletti in una pungente miscela stilistica in cui acustico e elettrico, folk e punk, jazz e reggae si inseguono senza tregua. Il carattere popolare degli spunti tematici di Cherry ben si presta a questo tipo di deformazione, qui pienamente assecondata dal banjo dell'ospite Eugene Chadbourne, perfetto complice per questo genere di operazioni.

Nella seconda facciata il tutto trova un'ulteriore rielaborazione grazie al trattamento da parte del musicista elettronico italiano [ma attivo in Olanda] JesterN, in uno spostamento progressivo di senso che si ricollega al lavoro del'artista Piermario Ciani, da sempre un punto di ispirazione per gli Arbe Garbe.

Utopico e denso come si conviene.

Track Listing: Complete Communion; Elephantasy; JesterN - Complete Communion JesterN's Hack; JesterN - Elephantasy JesterN's Hack.

Personnel: Flavio Zanuttini: tromba; Roberto Fabrizio: chitarra; Federico Galvani: fisarmonica; Giacomo Zanuttini: tuba; Marco "Padiar" Bianchini: batteria; Eugene Chadbourne: banjo, balloons; JesterN a.k.a. Alberto Novello: elettronica.
