Massimo Colombo, Chuck Berghofer, Peter Erskine: Electric Parker

Massimo Colombo, Chuck Berghofer, Peter Erskine: Electric Parker
Un salto indietro nel tempo per riassaporare la musica di Charlie Parker, nume tutelare del bebop. Un'occasione per riascoltare alcuni dei gioielli più iridescenti del jazz moderno da una prospettiva timbrica inusuale, quella del piano elettrico.

Su Electric Parker si ammira uno swing elegante e fantasioso, di tanto in tanto impreziosito dalle linee chiaroscurali del sintetizzatore. La ritmica stellare produce un mobile tappeto sonoro, funzionale al saettante solismo del leader. Ma si ha l'impressione che Colombo avrebbe potuto osare di più, a giudicare dal suo bozzetto astratto in "Billie's Bounce." Un pizzico di irriverenza aggiuntiva sarebbe certamente piaciuta a Charlie Parker.
