Jeff Cosgrove, Frank Kimbrough, Martin Wind: Conversations with Owls

By

Sign in to view read count
La batteria è il polo di attrazione di questo trio ben affiatato, accomunato da personalità musicali che amano discostarsi dagli schemi fraseologici più comuni. Il drumming frastagliato di Jeff Cosgrove proietta la vena impressionistica un po' malinconica di Frank Kimbrough in un ambito più astratto ed accademico. La rielaborazione di "My Favorite Things" mette bene in luce le strategie musicali messe in campo, nel tentativo di mettere a nudo il cuore dei tre musicisti per svelarne le pieghe più profonde.

La molteplicità di situazioni che ne deriva permette al pianista di dimostrare per l'ennesima volta la duttilità della sua voce, in cui confluiscono il jazz e gli echi della musica colta contemporanea. Una particolare sensibilità melodica scandisce sin dalle prime note questo superbo progetto dove tutto sembra funzionare a meraviglia, con un dinamico intreccio a tre voci cromaticamente raffinatissimo.

Il trio ha provato con successo a intraprendere strade jazzistiche poco battute, alimentandole con superbe composizioni originali prive di un comune baricentro. Si impone soprattutto la dimensione apollinea ed evocativa in un progetto che cambia frequentemente punti di vista musicali, sorprendendo di continuo le aspettative dell'ascoltatore.

Track Listing: The Owls; Stacks of Stars; I Loves You Porgy; Excitable Voices; Forest Hunters; My Favorite Things; The Shimmer.

Personnel: Jeff Cosgrove: batteria; Frank Kimbrough: pianoforte; Martin Wind: contrabbasso.
