THE RUNCIBLE QUINTET_Marcello Magliocchi/John Edwards/Adrian Northover/ Neil Metcalfe/Daniel Thompson

GIANNI LENOCI QUARTET With WILLIAM PARKER_ SECRET GARDEN_SILTA Rec. CD / 2011 Gianni Lenoci - prepared & unprepared piano & mbira, William Parker - double bass, Gaetano Partipilo - alto sax and Marcello Magliocchi - drums. This disc was recorded live in Italy in February of 2010 and all of the pieces were composed by Gianni Lenoci. The saxist here, Gaetano Partipilo, you might recognize from various discs on the Soul Note and Auand labels. The title track is first and features a sly, simmering melody with Mr. Partipilo slowly bending each note of his sax as he plays the theme and takes a sublime yet spirited solo. Mr. Lenoci also takes a fine, laid back piano solo which reminds me of the way Dollar Brand used to play those sunny South African songs. For "A Palindrome Life" Lenoci sounds like he is playing a harpsichord when he puts something inside the piano. Even with those bent, muted notes in the center of the keyboard, Lenoci's piano solo here is completely mesmerizing! Gaetano's bittersweet tone sounds great as he sails through "Two Days in Amsterdam" with Lenoci sparkling layers of lines underneath. The longest and perhaps best piece is called "Mbira". It does feature an African thumb piano when it begins and sounds like the natural sounds of an African village. The quartet move into a hypnotic, repeating line groove which features Lenoci's exquisite prepared piano and Partipilo's swell spiraling alto solo. William Parker's mighty bass fits perfectly in this quartet throughout, a righteous choice indeed. - Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery
