ANGELI, PAOLO: NITA. L'Angelo sul Trapezio
This could hardly be more different from his first ReR CD- the extraordinary collection of solo prepared Sardinian Guitar pieces. Here, with a small orchestra of musicians (30 of Bologna's finest), is a programme of highly evolved, through composed pieces that cover half a planet of styles and influences. At one pole there are involved pieces that bring to mind Uncle Meat period Zappa, and contemporary experimental music - and at the other, the straightforward influence of traditional Sardinian folk music. In between there blooms a broad bouquet of combinations, each telling its own part of the story. Throughout, Paolo's compositional voice remains the single thread on which all these episodes are strung. This is a CD that has the feel of a major project that took years and a massive amount of work to complete, which is what it is and what it did. With an extravagant and beautiful 28 page full colour booklet of photographs and full texts.
