John Fedchock NY Septet: Live at the Red Sea Jazz Festival

AAJ Italy Staff By

"Bel festival, sole, mare": è quello che avranno pensato i musicisti guidati dal trombonista John Fedchock, quando hanno appreso di essere stati invitati dal Red Sea Jazz Festival (ad Eilat, in Israele, una cittadina turistica sul Mar Rosso). Certo non potevano aspettarsi un caldo che, durante le prove di giorno, faceva sciogliere le suole delle scarpe.

Per fortuna di notte l'aria si è rinfrescata rendendo possible un'ottima performance. I tecnici del suono, a loro volta, erano in perfetta forma. E dopo l'ascolto del proprio concerto alla TV israeliana, che aveva ripreso l'evento, Fedchock ha capito di avere in mano un prodotto eccellente sia dal punto di vista artistico che da quello strettamente legato alla registrazione.

In Live at the Red Sea Jazz Festival ovviamente si respira l'aria del live, la voglia dei musicisti di mostrare la loro forza grazie ad assoli smaglianti, ottimi arrangiamenti, composizioni accattivanti (ad esempio "Elvin's Empire," con la sua atmosfera vagamente latina) e il suono complessivo di un concerto vero, non una mera jam session. Del resto, ognuno dei membri di questa formazione ha da tempo una carriera di spicco con numerosi dischi nei cataloghi delle case discografiche che hanno fatto del modern bop la loro bandiera.

Il pubblico presente reagisce con applausi calorosi, ma senza disturbare troppo le esecuzioni. E anche su CD l'ascolto risulta molto piacevole, perchè tutto suona spontaneo e smagliante, compatto, e con l'atmosfera emozionante dell'esibizione dal vivo.


Track Listing: This Just In; That's All Right; Elvin's Empire; Moon Alley; Caravan; Not So New Blues.

Personnel: John Fedchock: trombone; Scott Wendholt: trumpet, flugelhorn; Walt Weiskopf: tenor saxophone; Allen Farnham: piano; David Finck: bass; Dave Ratajczak: drums.

Title: Live at the Red Sea Jazz Festival | Year Released: 2010 | Record Label: Capri Records
