live at Novarajazz 08
Edition number eighteen of Amirani records is Live at Novarajazz 08 is an acoustic trio recorded at Novara jazz festival ‘08 in Italy.
The output is a strange chamber music with sudden strokes of controlled (even not) violence. The relationship finds its way among oblique narrations, with lyrical and dramatic moments, and intriguing harmonic textures . In fact the woodwind-string-brass trio is a very unusual interesting tone melange and the improvisation strategies are here enahanced with subtleness and intensity. Tensive-relaxed ! sincere-cuttin edge ! sculpting light atmospheres ! Contemporary avant-jazz / experimental background and extended instrumental skills give a rich nuance palette, a multi-perspective idea of music and vivid listening experience.
