Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

Jason Stein, Paul Giallorenzo, Frank Rosaly: Hearts & Minds

Vincenzo Roggero By

Il clarinetto basso di Jason Stein, i sintetizzatori e le pianole di Paul Giallorenzo, la batteria e le diavolerie elettroniche di Frank Rosaly sono l'insolita miscela che accende i motori di Hearts & Minds album ad alto gradiente di ottani di questo trio che aggiunge un ulteriore tassello all'effervescente scena musicale di Chicago.

Piace l'estrema libertà con la quale i tre giocano a (s)combinare i fattori a disposizione, a mischiare acustico ed elettrico, a cambiare le carte in tavola e le regole del gioco, a depistare l'ascoltatore, a concentrare in brani di breve/media durata universi sonori compiuti, partendo della loro apparente frammentarietà.

Tutto ciò avviene in modo diretto, senza filtri e sofisticazioni di sorta, un'idea di suono urbano che oscilla tra nevrotiche bizzarrie e malinconiche visioni notturne, tra echi del prog-rock più sperimentale e deliri free. E se qualche cuore tenero ha nostalgia di una ballad come si deve, ecco servito "Irresolute," l'ebano del clarone che vibra di brume notturne, la batteria che frulla leggera e l'elettricità delle tastiere a riempire l'aria di impulsi ovattati e di suoni compressi.

Track Listing: Stocky; Rocked and Eroded; The Western Situation; Three for One; An Unfortunate Lack of Role; Models; Streaming; Nick Masonry; Irresolute; Old Balance.

Personnel: Jason Stein: clarinetto basso; Paul Giallorenzo: sintetizzatori, e-pianet; Frank Rosaly: batteria, elettronica.
