Gianni Gagliardi: Nomadic Nature

Read "Nomadic Nature" reviewed by Luigi Sforza

Sin dalle prime note di contrabbasso, che mantiene un pedale e introducono “Paris," l'appassionato di Ornette Coleman esulta. Scorrono altre tracce -"L'ironie d'une Jolie Prisse De Téte," dove alberga una definizione sonora di tipo iberico, moderna e spavaldamente veloce, “Macanudo Man," una specie di funk sospeso tra la possibilità di farsi fusion e l'impossibilità di appiatirsi ...

Alexis Cuadrado: A Lorca Soundscape
