ALBCD 001 – Le Sue Ali – Luigi Martinale Trio

¥2,571

今から遡ること12年前(1997年)、同郷の若きファブリツィオ・ボッソ(tp)を起用したことでも知られる、トリノ出身のピアニスト、ルイージ・マルティナーレ。ピアノ・トリオ名盤『スウィート・マルタ』で共演したNYの鬼才ドリュー・グレス(b)を再び迎え入れ、最強のトリオがここに復活。オリジナリティ溢れる温かくやさしいメロディ、しっかりと練られた楽曲展開、高いレベルの和声技法を誇る「現代イタリアン・ジャズ・ピアノ」のひとつの理想型となる快作。コアなジャズ・ファンから一般リスナーまで幅広く楽しめる内容。

Voices

dg_logoA trio date, but one with a really fresh feel – kind of its own mix of lyrical energy and rhythmic pulse – in ways that remind us of some of our favorite French piano sessions of the past decade or two, but with some distinctly original touches as well! Luigi Martinale’s got a wonderful command of the keys – stepping forth in ways that warm things up while still swinging hard – thanks to this natural rhythm that seems to bubble forth even during more melodic moments – a bit hard to peg in words, but it will grab you right from the get-go when you give the set a listen. Other players fall right in line with this great approach – and include Drew Gress on bass and Paolo Franciscone on drums – on titles that include “Dancing In A Ring”, “Soft”, “Le Sue Ali”, “Beyond The Door”, “Sno Peas”, “African Flower”, and “Falling Grace”. © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.
