Scheen Jazzorkester & Jon Oystein Rosland: Tamanoar

Angelo Leonardi By

Sign in to view read count
Scheen Jazzorkester è un organico norvegese di 12 elementi fondato e diretto nel 2010 dal sassofonista Jon Øystein Rosland. Ha già inciso cinque album ed è una delle poche orchestre stabili del Paese, accanto alle più famose Trondheim Jazz Orchestra ed Ensemble Denada.

Jon Øystein Rosland è il principale compositore e arrangiatore della band e quest'incisione si snoda come una suite, in dinamiche e intricate relazioni tra musica classica e jazz. L'orchestra può contare su alcuni ottimi solisti (in particolare sul trombettista Thomas Johansson) ma il lavoro di scrittura è preponderante, con interventi personali limitati e funzionali alle dinamiche orchestrali.

Nella magniloquenza espressiva, nei pedali collettivi o nei marcati quadri ritmici il collettivo ricorda la Vienna Art Orchestra ma l'eccesso di scrittura rende vari brani macchinosi, con quadri musicali che si susseguono rapidamente soffocandone l'identità. I temi tendono alla fine a somigliarsi un po' tutti. I momenti più riusciti sono quelli in cui alcuni solisti si liberano dall'eccesso di scrittura e riescono a sviluppare una sincera e appassionante tensione espressiva: la parte centrale di ”Oppidium” con l'assolo di Johansson, l'intenso intervento di André Kassen al sax soprano in ”Lost in Lemuria III” e il complessivo svolgimento di ”Wabi Sabi” con l'incisivo Rune Klakegg al pianoforte.
