TONI GERMANI QUARTET
Toni Germani, alto sax and vocal; Giovanni Ceccarelli, piano;
Mauro Gargano, double bass; Patrick Goraguer, drums.
This new CD by Toni Germani, his ninth as a leader and the first to appear on the SLAM label, presents all original compositions recorded by a trio of sensitive musicians based in Paris, France.
Germani writes: "It confirms my love for the melody with accompaniment, considered as the main way to express an intimate relationship between experience of life and experience of music. In fact, the approach is basically "expressionist" and narrative, because the improvisation is conceived as a variation on and a development of the expressive mood affirmed by the theme. But the chant’s eruption must be stopped, at a certain point, the song must end and the form claims its part: so the songs are closed … in a box."
