Nicola Stilo: Immagini

AAJ Italy Staff By

Sign in to view read count
Disco dalle atmosfere brasiliane, con omaggi al jazz nostrano e non, questo nuovo lavoro del flautista Nicola Stilo vede la partecipazione di Silvia Donati alla voce, Leopoldo Sebastiani al basso elettrico, Alessandro Marzi alla batteria e Stefano Rossini alle percussioni.

La Donati ha una funzione centrale, con la sua interpretazione brasiliana anche delle tracce originali (“Immagini”, “Madre della notte”), così come lo è Rossini, con le sue suggestive percussioni. Stilo, dal canto suo, non si limita a suonare il flauto, ma è impegnato anche alla chitarra, alle percussioni e soprattutto al pianoforte: le due “Pianismo” sono infatti improvvisazioni in libertà e in solitudine.

Accanto agli omaggi a Toninho Horta (con il quale Stilo collabora frequentemente), Pieranunzi e Beirach, spicca l’ormai notissimo “How Far Can You Fly”, brano che ha reso celebre Luca Flores (con cui Stilo suonava spesso) e che qui, con la lirica interpretazione del flauto e il solo di Sebastiani, prende una nuova e affascinante colorazione.


Track Listing: 1. Gira e rigira (Stilo-Donati) - 3:55; 2. How Far Can you Fly (Flores) - 6:28; 3. Immagini (Stilo-Donati) - 4:29; 4. Toninho Song (Horta-Donati) - 4:44; 5. Poanismo 1 (Stilo) - 3:02; 6. Madre della notte (Stilo) - 5:29; 7. Nught Bird (Pieranunzi) - 3:00; 8. Broken Wing (Beirach) - 4:15; 9. Pianismo 2 (Stilo) - 2:27; 10. La danse du coer (Luxion) - 5:25

Personnel: Nicola Stilo (flauto, pianoforte, chitarre, voce), Silvia Donati (voce), Leopoldo Sebastiani (basso elettrico), Alessandro Marzi (batteria), Stefano Rossini (percussioni)
