Dan Moretti: Tres Muse
Medeski, Martin & Wood con il sax al posto delle tastiere. Se volessimo far il gioco delle somiglianze, questa potrebbe servire a dare un idea del clima che si respira in Tres Muse.

Batteria ipercinetica, basso elettrico implacabile e funkeggiante, sax tenore che sospinto dalla ritmica così stimolante può permettersi di scorazzare in lungo e in largo nei territori più disparati. Perché in Tres Muse troviamo sonorità fusion anni settanta, ballads dai sapori popolari, la contagiosa cantabilità dei ritmi caraibici, echi di fanfare e via dicendo.

Non manca certo il jazz straight-ahead ma è risolto in modi lontani dai power trio che hanno fatto la storia della musica afroamericana (Sonny Rollins, Ornette Coleman, Joe Henderson, etc). Qui il modus operandi è lineare, non ci sono stratificazioni, scatole cinesi o implicazioni intellettuali, perché l'enfasi viene posta sul groove, sulla comunicazione diretta con l'ascoltatore, su un alchimia strumentale in grado di creare atmosfere intriganti e coinvolgenti.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
