Ron Stabinsky: Free for One

Enrico Bettinello By

Nome decisamente poco familiare dalle nostre parti quello del pianista di Philadelphia Ron Stabinsky.
Componente da un po' di tempo degli irriverenti Mostly Other People Do the Killing (con i quali lo abbiamo ascoltato dal vivo a Saalfelden nel 2015, una prestazione davvero pazzesca), il musicista ha al suo attivo anche collaborazioni con Peter Evans, David Liebman e nell'ambito della musica classica.

Il suo debutto solista, per la Hot Cup del suo leader nei MOPTDK, Moppa Elliott, è un interessante raccolta di otto improvvisazioni nelle quali la formidabile tecnica di Stabinsky è a servizio di un flusso di coscienza sempre governato con grande spontaneità.
Allievo di Bill Dixon, Stabinsky affida al gesto solista una forza multidirezionale, in cui vari parametri -un frammento melodico o ritmico, zone di astrazione, strutture accordali, iterazioni, etc. -generano un flusso sempre sorprendente.

Convivono felicemente nelle otto tracce del disco il lirismo della melodia e momenti più bruschi, in cui la fisicità del pianoforte, sebbene non portata agli estremi, è esplorata con contagiosa pervicacia. Un disco davvero intrigante, con cui si acquisisce familiarità ascolto dopo ascolto e che ci spinge a non perdere d'occhio questo splendido musicista.

Track Listing: ...After It's Over; 31; Viral Infection; Gone Song; For Reel; Not Long Now/Long Now; Rapture; Once, But Again.

Personnel: Ron Stabinsky: piano.
