John Raymond & Real Feels: John Raymond & Real Feels
Delizioso disco giocato sul filo della memoria -quella di alcuni noti traditional e di classici del jazz, quella di un glorioso passato del pop -i Beatles -e quella di un rock attuale di meritata fama—Tom Yorke e i suoi Radiohead. Chitarra, flicorno e batteria sono i lati di un triangolo perfettamente equilatero, ciascuno con la propria personalità, ciascuno indispensabile in parti uguali al raggiungimento del risultato finale.

La sei corde di Gilad Hekselman, origini israeliane, formazione newyorchese, è gentile, pulita, essenziale, estremamente creativa in fase armonica, ma sa estrarre le unghie al momento opportuno come nella splendida "Blues for C.M.," firmata Dave Holland. Il flicorno di John Raymond, pluripremiato talento newyorchese, possiede una sorta di classicità che incorpora con naturalezza diverse influenze, mantenendo eleganza e fluidità esecutiva. La batteria di Colin Stranahan, leggera e fantasiosa, interagisce con sensibilità e crea adeguati tappeti ritmici.

Il disco risulta così un piacevole viaggio, lontano da effetti nostalgici e da sentimentalismi, soave e colorato come una bolla di sapone.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
