Alexander von Schlippenbach: Warsaw Concert

Rosarita Crisafi By

Una formazione leggendaria e portabandiera della via europea del jazz: il trio del pianista Alexander von Schlippenbach assieme a Evan Parker e Paul Lovens. Dopo più di quattro decenni continuano a stupire per la loro freschezza musicale. In Warsaw Concert si ascolta una lunga suite di 51 minuti, registrata dal vivo a Varsavia il 16 ottobre 2015, più una breve coda: l'eccezionale documento sonoro che fotografa lo stato dell'arte del trio negli anni 10.

Nulla è stato deciso prima del concerto, come riportano le note di copertina del CD. Si scorre lungo un flusso improvvisativo ricco di invenzioni. Il risultato è una composizione istantanea in cui si stratificano e si avvicendano melodie liriche, contrasti ritmici, momenti di densità virtuosistica o aree sonore più rarefatte in uno spettro coloristico assai ampio che esplora ogni registro e diversi timbri sui singoli strumenti.

Un oceano ricco di suggestioni in cui si riconoscono all'orizzonte i temi di "Miss Ann" e "Out of There" di Eric Dolpy e "Marcia di Saturno" dello stesso von Schlippenbach, immersi nel perfetto interplay del trio dal suono inconfondibile. Prova magistrale per questo ensemble di fuoriclasse che ha tutte le caratteristiche per poter diventare un nuovo classico dell'avanguardia.
