Record Label: Silta
Style: Contemporary Jazz
Antonio Cavicchi (guitar), Ares Tavolazzi (double bass), Riccartdo
Whereas Bill Evans has marked the jazz world’s spotlight as an
amazing composer and piano instrumentalist, this record is an
able-bodied wink to remind us of Evans’s tradition of contemporary jazz.
To Bill Evans is a revelation from Trio: Bill’s Heaven.
Trio: Bill’s Heaven is a formation with guitarist Antonio Cavicchi,
bassist Ares Tavolazzi and drummer Ricardo Biancoli who gracefully focus
this release on Bill Evans’s music. If much of this album can be valued
as conventional sounding, the paraphrasing has substance and knack.
Cavicchi, Tavolazzi and Biancoli display here a shared force in their
musical demeanour and mastery to provide propulsive playing and
moderated tones as well as wide reflection. Cavicci devises his own
magisterial mark from “Mother of Earl” to the last track, “Funkallero”.
Tavolazzi swings with gristly bass pitches oftentimes blushed with dared
improv scats. Biancoli twists and emphasizes his drive with
mighty asseverations. "Mother of Earl", "Periscope" , "I Fall in
Love Too Easily" are highlights.
In the liner notes Giorgio Rimondi describes the virtues of
listening/communication tandems and the skills for improvisation in the
TRIO Contemporary musical journey. For them, time is in essence
sound and it’s never orthodox, yet To Bill Evans this hides a
test for broad ears as certainly as TRIO will echo vast skylines.
