Corsano, Wooley, Martini, Domenico I Posh Scorch LP
Nate Wooley, Hugo Antunes, Giovanni di Domenico, Daniele Martini, Chris Corsano
a mini-album recorded live by Nate Wooley (on trumpet and amplifier), Daniele Martini (on tenor sax), Giovanni Di Domenico (on Fender Rhodes and electronics), Hugo Antunes (on double bass) and Chris Corsano (on drums) in Les Ateliers Claus in Brussels on May 27, 2012. This improvisation is essentially a Free Jazz exploration that uses an abstracted, almost classical jazz template. Intuitive and beautiful, the piece builds up to a few more intense parts that touch upon noise and have a very explicit Free Jazz feeling. Quieter parts leave more room for its abstracted influences to flourish and seek direction. The five instrumentalists seem to pull the music open into many different directions at once, quickly regrouping and allowing a natural flow to run through the whole piece. Different instruments converse with each other at different times, others add background atmosphere and texture. All five musicians, at different times and intervals, shape and steer the track into its eclectic and informed form. Like flicking channels late at night, maximizing perception and input, this is big city music that is not afraid of the small nor the overstated.
