Barry Altschul: The 3Dom Factor: Live in Krakow

Enrico Bettinello By

Sign in to view read count
Tutta l'energia del concerto nell'ottimo Alchemia Club di Cracovia (siamo a dicembre del 2016). Garantisce il batterista Barry Altschul, nome imprescindibile del jazz contemporaneo (lo ricordiamo con Paul Bley o con Anthony Braxton), alla guida del trio 3Dom Factor, con Joe Fonda al contrabbasso e un fantasticamente irrequieto Jon Irabagon a tenore e sopranino.

Repertorio solido e consolidato, sia nei temi originali di Altschul, già presenti nel primo disco del trio, che nella turgida rilettura della monkiana "Ask Me Now"; solidità e flessibilità che vanno a braccetto, con Irabagon che dà sfogo a tutta la sua obliqua fantasia, il disco conferma quanto la vitalità di un artista e la sua esperienza (in questo il batterista ha pochi rivali) riescano a attivare percorsi espressivi sempre significativi anche all'interno di una pratica dai contorni ormai ben definiti.

Notevole il rapsodiare tra contrabbasso e sopranino in "Irina."

CD viscerale e ispirato.

Track Listing: Martin's Stew; Ask Me Now; For Papa Joe, Klook, and Philly Too; Irina; The 3Dom Factor.

Personnel: Barry Altschul: drums; Jon Irabagon: tenor and sopranino saxophones; Joe Fonda: bass.
