Import CD – RRJ 1021 – When We Forgot The Melody Vol.2 – Dimitri Grechi Espinoza, Tito Mangialajo Rantzer

Nearly three years following the success of the first chapter of When We Forgot The Melody, Dimitri Grechi Espinoza and Tito Mangialajo Rantzer once again plunge into the depths of a proudly spontaneous set of music. The duo’s natural drive and virtuosity appear to be intact, with the resulting music displaying all the concrete but elusive creativity to be found in an instantaneous composition set to the jazz vein. The luxuriantly shaped lines of Espinoza’s alto sax make for a perfect match with Mangialajo’s bass, while five of the eight tracks also feature the drumming of the exquisitely talented Riccardo Chiaberta (an up-and-coming star of the Milan jazz scene), successfully extending the scope of an already far-reaching instrumental dialogue.
