Leslie Pintchik: You Eat My Food, You Drink My Wine, You Steal My Girl!
Anche in quest'album la sensibile pianista e compositrice di New York, ripropone l'organico degli ultimi due dischi con l'aggiunta del fisarmonicista Shoko Nagai. E nuovamente si rinnova la fragranza delle sue composizioni, dove la tensione jazzistica si alimenta di suggestioni latine o lascia spazio a intime melodie.
Dopo essersi esibita professionalmente per un ventennio senza incidere nulla, dal 2004 a oggi Leslie Pintchik ha registrato sette album, presentando proprie composizioni accanto ai classici del songbook statunitense. Qui la scelta dei brani non suoi l'ha portata agli anni della Swing Era con il classico "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" riletto in forma di samba e il meno noto "I'm Glad There Is You" di Jimmy Dorsey, interpretato a tempo di bolero.
I temi della pianista sono sempre affascinanti e il contributo dei partner li esalta nei valori melodici. Tra i migliori ricordiamo "Mortal," una ballad intrisa di malinconica dolcezza, e "Hopperesque," chiaro omaggio al pittore Edward Hopper con Shoko Nagai protagonista.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
