Greg Burk Expanding Trio: Deep Blue Sky

By

Sign in to view read count
Deep Blue Sky ripropone la sonorità elettrica del sintetizzatore Moog, con scansioni ritmiche tra jazz e funky. Il canone di riferimento, in voga negli anni Settanta, viene talora rinverdito con una dimensione ritmica contemporanea. C'è pure spazio per le sonorità acustiche, magnificamente rivelate dall'aura intimistica ed introspettiva di "Starbright Reverie."

Oltre a rispecchiare maggiormente la poetica jazzistica di Greg Burk, l'intensa narratività melodica di questa composizione è l'episodio più riuscito di un percorso musicale complessivamente arioso e ritmicamente frastagliato. Su buoni livelli si attesta anche il sound d'insieme all'insegna dell'eclettismo, nella duplice veste acustica ed elettrica.

Non c'è solo colore o il ritmo in questo trio, che anche nelle soluzioni più fusion sa come imprimere il drive e la forza espressiva del jazz. Ma questa non è la formula più adatta al leader per esprimere al meglio gli infiniti rivoli del suo pianismo.

Track Listing: Boson Bounce; Spacetime Slide; Starbright Reverie; Celestial Caress; Triad Again; Elliptic Incantation; Run Neutrino Run; Dep Blue Sky; We Go.

Personnel: Greg Burk: piano, Moog; Stefano Senni: contrabbasso; Enzo Carpentieri: batteria.

Title: Deep Blue Sky | Year Released: 2017 | Record Label: Pink House Records
