Jane Bunnett - Hilario Duran: Cuban Rhapsody

AAJ Italy Staff By

Sign in to view read count
Cuban Rhapsody documenta un incontro musicale cubano-canadese all'insegna di amore, passione e creatività. In un continuo susseguirsi di brillanti soluzioni, (ri)emerge un lungo filo che tra matrice africana e mondo classico accomuna jazz e musiche cubane. Sax e pianoforte si incrociano mirabilmente per dar luogo ad un progetto colto e raffinato che dà vita ad una musica diretta e godibile quanto profonda nei suoi risvolti culturali grazie all'attenzione riservata alla parte meno conosciuta della tradizione cubana che va da Manuel Samuell ad Ignacio Cervante.

In primo piano composizioni colte afferenti al genere delle contradanzas ottocentesche, dove i poliritmi della tradizione africana si sposano con le perle armoniche della tradizione pianistica europea. Il duo svetta dall'alto di un approccio sinuoso e ricercato, che integra gli aspetti ritmicamente più sanguigni del mondo caraibico con le mille raffinatezze del mondo classico. È una musica densa ed avvincente dove rifulge lo slancio lirico dei due musicisti. Tanta passione, tanto amore profusi in un progetto che coniuga magistero tecnico e rigore espressivo. Al di là delle sfumature e delle dinamiche a dir poco ammirevoli, emerge l'adesione emotiva alla musica proposta.

Track Listing: Lagrimas Negras (Black Tears); Son de la Loma: Longina; Quirino Con Su Tres; Contradanzas; Maria la O; Almendra; New Danzon; Sherezada; Danza Lucumi.

Personnel: Jane Bunnett: flute, soprano saxophone; Hilario Duran: piano.
