This is an important record for me, not only because it contains a piece of the sound of Luigi Trovesi, or because documenting the research, the validity and the beauty of the music of Luigi Bonafede.
This is an important record for me, because I was always given an idea of community, exchange, collaboration genuine and spontaneous, as well as a strong passion and a desire to document the moment.
Even the cover says this:
the ecstasy of enjoyment after creating (Bonafede n°1), the exchange of glances and thoughts (Trovesi, Terzano and Marsano, n°2, 6 and 4), the satisfying search continues (Marchesini and Pellegatti, n°3 and 5, discuss over a copy of Transition by John Coltrane) and then the friendship, art, literature, the smoke and the music enclosed in a single room represented in those splendid 12-inch or 31x31 cm.
And then the music, music that pulls forward, pushing the head in the right, taking account also the last of his wagons because, you know, in the stations of life, you can always reverse the direction, but the link should not be interrupting ...
For this reason, I consider this an album for jazz collectors, real ones.
Or better still, this is an album for jazz lovers, because it represents them, describes them and tells of them better than a thousand useless words mine.
I dedicate this post to Alessandro of Bergamo who contacted me after recognizing some records, that he sold me long time ago, on my blog dedicated to HORO label.
Recognized, you understand, as it does with the children away and loved for a long time, even forever, though now they no longer live in the same house.
Here, this is jazz: liaison, exchange and passion.
Thanks Ale, thank you mate.
