Mural: Shishi's Wish

Angelo Leonardi By

Prende il nome dal suo disco d'esordio, questo trio nippo-tedesco-cileno nato a New York nel 2015. Giunto al secondo album, Mural conferma la prospettiva trasversale, spaziando da momenti di marcata concitazione elettrica —una sorta di fusion rivisitata evidente in «Giacomo!» e in «Geronimo» —ad altri acusticamente riflessivi, venati di atmosfere folk.

I tratti costanti sono il marcato interplay che lega gli strumentisti e la particolare attrattiva dei temi, sia nella dimensione melodica che in quella ritmica. I brani sono spesso delineati dalla relazione tra la chitarra e il basso mentre la batteria svolge un fantasioso ruolo interattivo. Il momento più tradizionale, con la chitarra linearmente protagonista e i partner nel ruolo di sensibili accompagnatori (con uno spazio per l'intervento del contrabbasso) è la conclusiva ballad «Someone to Watch Over Me»: un chiaro segno di rispetto per la tradizione.



Diplomato alla Berklee in Jazz Guitar Performance and Jazz Composition, il chitarrista Aki Ishiguro suona professionalmente da una decina d'anni e ha collaborato con musicisti stilisticamente diversi come John Zorn, Christian McBride, Chaka Khan o Melissa Etheridge. Con lo strumento elettrico evidenzia uno stile influenzato da John Scofield e Kurt Rosenwinkel; in quello acustico traspare la vicinanza a Ralph Towner. Il bassista Peter Schwebs ha studiato Jazz & Contemporary Music all'Università di Hannover opera tra questa città e New York. Ha pubblicato un paio di lavori con la sua band ed ha collaborato con Kenny Werner, Joe Lovano, George Garzone, Chris Potter e Randy Brecker.
Nato a Santiago del Cile, il batterista Rodrigo Recabarren opera a New York dal 2009 e lo si è visto assieme a Kenny Barron, Kenny Werner, Brad Shepik, Gilad Hekselman e altri.

Track Listing: Giacomo!; Fingerprints; Shishi; Siete Diamantes; Mari; CSD Orompello; Nazo; Spätsommer; Geronimo Someone to Watch Over Me.
