Josh Deutsch, Nico Soffiato: Reverse Angle

Vincenzo Roggero By

Benché tra i nove brani di Reverse Angle si intrufolino Beethoven e Gershwin possiamo dire che l'intrusione apparentemente bizzarra funziona perché l'intero disco suona come un Bignami dello standard moderno. Esecuzioni contenute nel tempo -solo in due occasioni vicine ai cinque minuti di durata, l'intero album meno di quaranta -melodie in bella vista, organizzazione e sviluppo del brano in pieno controllo, trama definita e compiuta, coinvolgimento immediato dell'ascoltatore.

Vi è un'atmosfera piacevolmente retrò nella musica proposta da Josh Deutsch, trombettista originario di Seattle e da Nico Soffiato, chitarrista padovano da anni residente a New York. E un dialogo perlopiù sussurrato, nel quale la chitarra -in altri contesti abrasiva, spigolosa, inquieta -rivela il suo lato più intimo, caldo e rassicurante, mentre la tromba si muove sinuosa e lirica, in un rispettoso interplay.

Fuori dal coro suonano la title track -toni rockeggianti grazie anche alla batteria aggiunta di Zach Mangan, dinamiche accentuate, melodia che prende alla gola -e l'iniziale "Time Gels #3" -minime distorsioni e battiti ossessivi in sottofondo a "disturbare" il normale scorrere del pezzo. Tra i brani più riusciti. E forse un sentiero da esplorare in futuro.

Track Listing: Time Gels #3; Alabaster; Someone To Watch Over Me; Reverse Angle; LVBSP; Silica Sand; Tongue Twister; Quinine; Mix Tape.

Personnel: Josh Deutsch: trumpet, piano (6); Nico Soffiato: guitar, baritone guitar (3); Zach Mangan: drums (4); J.C. Maillard: electronics (9).
