Giorgio Occhipinti: Giorgio Occhipinti Hereo Nonetto Plus Cellos Sequences

Glenn Astarita By

Sign in to view read count
Pianist/composer/conductor Giorgio Occhipinti and his 'Hereo Nonetto' (nonet) invites the listener to partake on a ubiquitous journey consisting of disparate musical notions and multifarious implementations in concert with intermittent strings sequences ('Cellos Sequences') by cellists Tiziana Cavaleri and Vito Amatulli.

The leader's suite in eight movements titled, Global Music and Circular Thought features beefy trombone parts, stately themes and intertwining movements as the artist frames his works around geometric and interleaving patterns often brimming with sonorous interludes, modern jazz interplay and cascading rhythms. Occhipinti touches upon concepts pioneered by Gershwin, Ellington or perhaps Aaron Copeland within the scope of his rather expansive vernacular, where the band often launches into medium tempo swing vamps or harmonious choruses, awash with bustling strings and serenading motifs. However, on part eight, the musicians' engage in spurious free-jazz dialogue amid chamber-like passages and episodic movements. Essentially, this recent release prevails as an altogether impressive ' Third Stream ' type affair, thanks to Giorgio Occhipinti's cleverly constructed and richly thematic arrangements along with the musicians' rousing performances. Recommended.
