Guillermo Klein Y Los Guachos: Live in Barcelona

AAJ Italy Staff By

Sign in to view read count
Un compositore e pianista argentino, una band brillante e agguerrita.

Ecco Los Guachos, che dopo un doppio acclamato album uscito cinque anni fa, tornano con questa registrazione dal vivo che sintetizza una poetica densa di elementi: un folklore tematico lontano dalla banalità; una fragranza di arrangiamenti che, se non è certo avveniristica, è comunque saggia; un insieme di interventi solistici di primo livello.

Lo stile di Klein è tradizionale nell’accumulazione di sequenze sonore che accendono il ritmo e lo rilassano, e nella preferenza accordata all’esecuzione d’insieme rispetto alla libertà individuale.

C’è uno sguardo a certo Gil Evans anche se siamo lontani da quelle intuizioni uniche. C’è l’uso della voce (Carme Canela) e una dinamica generale di gradevole scorrevolezza.

I solisti sono ottimi : Chris Cheek, Bill McHenry, Gorka Benitez, Ben Monder, tra gli altri.

Track Listing: 01. Blues de Liz (Guillermo Klein); 02.Con Brasil Adentro-Fuga X (Klein); 03. Juana (Klein); 04. Child's Play (Jeff Ballard); 05. Intercambio Moral (Klein); 06. Chucaro (Richard Nant); 07. El Espejo (Klein); 08. Ojos Cerrados (Klein); 09. Richard (Ballard); 10. El camino (Klein); 11. La Ultima (Klein); 12. Flores (Klein)
