Silvano Borzacchiello Trio: El Cerrito PL

AAJ Italy Staff By

Il quarantaseienne batterista svizzero, del quale apprezzammo qualche anno fa Costalta, in quintetto, si presenta qui in trio con i milanesi Massimo Colombo al piano e Riccardo Fioravanti al contrabbasso. Un trio che peraltro si allarga dalla metà del disco, per ospitare la tromba di Hilaria Kramer e il trombone di Danilo Moccia, così da mettere in scena su sfondi diversificati un buon jazz moderno.

Il lavoro è condotto complessivamente su tempi medi, rilassati ma solo in parte meditativi, anzi prevalentemente lirico-narrativi - con qualche soffusa e sorprendente suggestione monkiana che fa capolino nelle parti in trio ("Punto"). La diffusa liricità viene mantenuta anche nelle due tracce improvvisate. In trio, Colombo e Fioravanti mettono in luce doti ed esperienza, suonando in modo sofisticato e con grande affiatamento, mentre Borzacchiello svolge soprattutto il ruolo di regia.

Leggermente diverso lo scenario delle tracce con la presenza degli ottoni, che incrementano la tensione e si aprono spazi per assolo che rendono il tessuto più dinamico e leggermente meno narrativo, anche se coerente alla cifra del trio.

Globalmente un lavoro apprezzabile, con ottime composizioni, tra le quali spiccano "Punto" e "Tangram".
