Right Now [Import] on CD

Recorded and mixed in Cavalicco on 2, 3 January 2014 at Artesuono Recording Studio Recording & mixing engineer Stefano Amerio. Mattia Cigalini loves to catch his listeners off-guard. "Beyond" had increased the level of fusion between jazz and pop by bringing into play songs by Katy Perry, Rihanna, Shakira, Jennifer Lopez and Lady Gaga, reinterpreted in a definitely original way. On "Right Now", recorded with Enrico Zanisi, a step backwards only appears to have been taken. Actually, this record is a return to classical jazz and the traditional saxophone/piano duo. If we think of it as a traditional LP on vinyl, we might say that side a is the domain of Cigalini, while side B of Zanisi, apart from the two jointly-written opening tracks. A 45-minute dialogue, with the saxophonist asking questions and the pianist seeking answers. On the opening track, "The Painter", the two musicians explore a wide range of colours. Three tracks by Cigalini, "Lost Steps", "Herr Mann" and "Too Buth", follow closely: time drawn out and quiet moods predominate, with moments of striking empathy between the two instruments and spaces in which improvisation by the two young talents prevails. "When I Disappear" is the latter jointly-written track that opens the alleged side B of "Right Now", with peaceful, nocturnal sounds flowing into powerful solos. "Anthem", "Elisir" and "Singe" are three tracks by Zanisi in which still no frenzy, but rather a search for sounds, voices and an interlocking of instruments can be perceived. There is nothing of the vehemence that two young lions of Italian jazz are supposed to convey, but a pursuit of elegance which is peculiar to more mature composers.
