MAINTENANT SLAMCD 566 Barcode: 5028386633327 Lucia Ianniello Quartet Lucia Ianniello Bb and C trumpet, flugelhorn, effects and objects; Diana Torti voice; Giuseppe La Spina guitars; Paolo Tombolesi keyboards, acoustic bass and percussion.
"Maintenant" is Lucia Ianniello’s first CD as leader: although a jazz trumpeter by training, she is very open to experimentation in other musical areas, including the creation of multidisciplinary projects. This album is a work of auditory images, atmospheres and soundscapes, some visionary, with particular exploration of melody and timbre. Extended passages of collective improvisation are conceived as contrapuntal layering of sounds.
The quartet offers a ‘sound chamber’ obtained, despite a significant presence of electronic instruments and effects, through the trumpeter’s arrangements, characterized by the absence of drums and the use of the instrumental voice without text. However, the underlying philosophy of this work is expressed, beyond the stylistic and formal aspects, in an effort to focus on the urgency of expression and the human relationship between the musicians, away from any form of complacency.
