Tyshawn Sorey: Verisimilitude

Read "Verisimilitude" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Il tocco ricco di sottili contrasti dinamici che Tyshawn Sorey mette in risalto alla batteria si avvicina per ampiezza espressiva a quello delle dita su un pianoforte: dalla pennellata acquosa al colpo ovattato, dall'urto leggero alla cupa, vigorosa stoccata.
