In the words of Kurt Weil "Where do incoming goods go from here? To that question I ask where indeed? This release is about as obscure as it gets .There is no translated biographical information on the artist;even the liner notes are in Italian.That said the music here is played with necessary craft and wit. Arrangements are equaly shared by the band members;and they bristle in showcasing each solist in a warm capriciousness.This is the type of disc that grows richer with each listen.Much like Kurt Weill himself there is a sly subversiveness to the re-arrangements."Surabaya Johnny (from Happy end)" goes through at least three deft tempo changes.Each player imbues his playing with a croos stylistic apphroach to jazz that incorporates the tradational,the avant-garde and the folkloric. Drummer Daniele Fusi is the perfect foil here. His dry cymbal sound ebb and flows each improvisation with the perfect backdrop.Overall this is some of the most unselfish jazz to be heard;each player surreandering to the sound at hand.
