Peter Brötzmann, Steve Swell, Paal Nilssen-Love: Live In Tel Aviv

Enrico Bettinello By

Un altro tassello si aggiunge alla già corposa discografia del sassofonista tedesco Peter Brötzmann, il terzo insieme a questo trio con il trombone di Steve Swell e la batteria di Paal Nilssen-Love.

Rigorosamente dal vivo, catturato nel momento in cui questa materia incandescente viene lavorata dai tre musicisti.

Un rituale sonoro e fisico che i tanti appassionati della musica di Brötzmann conoscono ormai da tempo, ma che non rinunciano a seguire, grazie alla solo apparentemente contraddittoria compresenza di immutabilità e di imprevedibilità e grazie alla felice -e a tratti più lirica -vena improvvisativa del sassofonista in questi ultimi dieci anni.

Due lunghi brani, composti dal sempre eccellente Swell: "The Greasy Grind" il primo, tumultuoso e sfaccettato, ricco di combinazioni interne tra gli strumenti e di momenti magici (attorno alla metà del pezzo, sul clangore quasi marciante dei piatti della batteria, dietro il solo frammentato del trombone si erge un canto quasi esotico e estatico di Brötzmann); il secondo, più breve, "Ticklish Pickle," sorge dall'inquietudine sussurrata con tecniche non convenzionali al trombone (spettacolare Swell qui, spettacolare!) per cristallizzare poi attorno all'urlo del clarinetto di Brötzmann una emozionalità dolente e diretta che va a spegnersi in una sorta di borbottio sommesso e recalcitrante.

Splendido lavoro, che piacerà come sempre ai fedelissimi, ma che, per concisione e varietà di elementi, potrebbe conquistare anche orecchie più refrattarie a queste intemperanze.

Track Listing: The Greasy Grind; Ticklish Pickle

Personnel: Peter Brötzmann: saxophone, clarinet; Steve Swell: trombone; Paal Nilssen-Love: drums, percussions.
