French saxophonist Émile Parisien, instigator of some of the most musical, formidably skilful yet wackily diverting adventures in recent European jazz, makes a rare UK visit in a duo at November’s London jazz festival, but this exuberant album rams home the full Parisien experience, with a new quintet, regular accordion partner Vincent Peirani, and two revered European elder statesmen in German pianist Joachim Kühn and French bass clarinet original Michel Portal. From the opening vibrato-trembling soprano sax Préambule (Parisien can be a spiky avantist, but he’s a devoted Sidney Bechet admirer, too), through the hard-swinging Poulp – which sounds like the work of a 21st-century Hot Club band with Ornette Coleman leanings – through the contemporary-noir doom-walk of Brainmachine or the accordion-throbbing Umckaloabo, Parisien leads an exhilarating genre-hop bubbling with captivating remakes of US and European jazz traditions.

Sfumato, the visual arts term, is mutated from the Italian words for smoke and blended. The procedure overlays translucent layers of color to create perceptions of depth, volume and form -- blending these attributes so subtly that there’s no perceptible transition between one and another.

French saxophonist Emile Parisien is a jazz visionary. He may have one foot in that ancient soil, but his gaze is firmly fixed on the future. The leading French newspaper Le Monde has called him the best new thing that has happened in European jazz for a long time . The reference points on Parisien s personal musical map are very widely spread indeed. They range from the popular folk traditions of his homeland to the compositional rigour of contemporary classical music, and also to the abstraction of free jazz.

Genre: Classical | Label: Pierian

Argentinean Alberto Ginastera was among the most successful mid-twentieth century composers in retaining the populist accessibility of his early works while incorporating elements of serialism as his style developed. His later works may not have the hummable melodies or propulsive rhythmic drive of his early period, but they have a comparable dramatic logic and emotional directness, which give them an immediate appeal. His two cello concertos, written in 1968 and 1981, are clearly "modernist" works of his late period, but they are warmly lyrical, intensely dramatic, and orchestrated with intriguing inventiveness. In their slow sections, they are also prime examples of the mysterious, gorgeously evocative atmospherics of which Ginastera was a master throughout his career.

Un capolavoro assoluto come la Gioconda non è solo un quadro da ammirare affascinati dagli occhi che sembrano vivi e dalla magia del sorriso. In realtà è un viaggio nella mente e nelle emozioni di Leonardo. È una porta che si spalanca su un luogo e su un’epoca indimenticabili: Firenze (ma anche Milano, Roma, Mantova, Urbino…) e il Rinascimento. …

Truman Capote - Musica per camaleonti
Italian | Garzanti | 1981 | ISBN: 8811660580 | 264 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

Truman Capote è uno dei maggiori scrittori americani del Novecento e al tempo stesso un insuperabile maestro del reportage. Nella sua opera il confine tra la letteratura e il giornalismo è spesso sfumato, indefinibile: Musica per camaleonti, pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1980, riesce a essere insieme grande letteratura e grande giornalismo. Cangiante e mutevole come un camaleonte, Capote entra in sintonia con i suoi interlocutori, spingendoli a disegnarsi in autoritratti involontari dallo stile vivido e raffinatamente mimetico. Raccontando pezzi di vita quotidiana e pettegolezzi, sregolatezze e bizzarrie, passando con naturalezza dallo snervante chiacchiericcio del jet-set ai riti della provincia più dimenticata e profonda, Truman Capote riesce a mettere a nudo tutta l'innocenza e la violenza dell'anima americana.
