Marilyn Crispell, Gerry Hemingway: Table of Changes

Angelo Leonardi By

Dal tour europeo dell'estate 2013 è tratta questa selezione di libere improvvisazioni eseguite Marilyn Crispell e Gerry Hemingway. I due hanno collaborato a lungo nel quartetto di Anthony Braxton tra gli anni ottanta e i novanta, iniziando a esibirsi in duo dal 1992.
Se si eccettua la ballad "Ev'rytime We Say Goodbye" l'album raccoglie libere improvvisazioni che si sviluppano a partire da invenzioni estemporanee dalla trama ora volatile e sommessa ora intrisa di forza e tensione. La musica è tanto aperta quanto minuziosa nella condivisione delle dinamiche e riesce a dare il senso della costruzione logica, riuscendo a ovviare alla mancanza di melodie riconoscibili a cui far riferimento nel corso del confronto improvvisato. Ovviamente ha bisogno di un ascolto attento e partecipato, che accetti il libero fluire delle idee senza aspettative precostituite.

Un discorso a parte -e forse un piccolo regalo per chi ha bisogno di strutture riconoscibili -viene dall'esecuzione della citata "Ev'rytime We Say Goodbye": dopo un inizio totalmente astratto, frammenti di tema iniziano a far capolino dal pianoforte, fino a sviluppare l'intera melodia con intensa partecipazione lirica. Il brano è tutto per la Crispell ed Hemingway si limita a disegnare leggeri fondali ritmici.

Track Listing: Spirings; Waterwisp; Roofless; Night Passing; Windy City; Assembly; Ev'rytime We Say Goodbye; Table of Changes.

Personnel: Marilyn Crispell: pianoforte; Gerry Hemingway: batteria, percussioni, vibrafono.

Title: Table of Changes | Year Released: 2016 | Record Label: Intakt Records
