Brazilian Jazz NIghts Presents: Patrizia Di Malta Ensemble 


PATRIZIA DI MALTA ENSEMBLE

PRESS RELEASE CD

ACCORDEONICA

The “ACCORDEONICA” CD is born due to a sudden need : in September 2018, facing with the inevitability of a surgical operation whose consequence could be the loss of her voice, Patrizia Di Malta decides to enter a recording studio to fix into time the musical experience undertaken in one year of shows with her musical fellows Nadio Marenco on the accordion and Romain Valentino on guitar and vocals. ACCORDEONICA is the result of two days of live recording sessions in the studio. Capturing the moment is the fundamental characteristic of this type of recording, with a charme that is not comparable to that of the most widespread tracks overdubbing. The tight- knit trio of musicians recorded a selection from the international songs they had chosen for their gigs, trying to leave room for improvisation and adding to each song something different: a rhythm, a structure, a percussion, or the reading key itself. Patrizia's voice is full of magic and emotion, perhaps for the arduous moment she was going through. A voice that intertwines with the velvet voice of Romain Valentino, with his ductile and expressive guitar, and with Nadio Marenco’s phrasing and rhythm, now caressing now impetuous.


PATRIZIA DI MALTA ENSEMBLE

The result is a sound so magical and alive that the listener has the impression that the musicians are next to him; he feels just as he could touch them. In this kind of recording mistakes can't be fixed without loss of immediacy and of the sense of truth. The small errors testify to the unique moment in which they found themselves interweaving their moods and their emotions. The retrò repertoire was originally selected by Patrizia Di Malta to be interpreted live by her voice and the accordion of the sensitive and virtuous Nadio Marenco. The introduction of the guitar and the voice of Romain Valentino - both as a second voice and as a soloist - took place later, in October 2017; besides integrating perfectly with the sound, Romain Valentino gave both repertoire and arrangement proposals. The album consists of 15 international songs of great atmosphere, 9 of which belonging to the Brazilian tradition from north to south and of the interior, composed in a period of time from 1927 to 1970: Na baixa do sapateiro, a song of 1939 by the composer Ary Barroso, present in the soundtrack of Saludos Amigos by Walt Disney (who in 1941 proposed to Ary Barroso the musical direction of Walt Disney Production); Upa neguinho by Edu Lobo - playful song of 1965 against slavery, become famous in Brazil thanks to Elis Regina and in Italy thanks to Mina, with the name Allegria; the baião Canario do Reino by Carvalho and Zapata - perhaps the most catchy CD track, almost a folk song - ; the poignant Eu te amo by Jobim and Chico Buarque; two samba-canção with echoes of fado by white sambist Noel Rosa, who died in 1937 at the age of 27 (Três Apitos, 1933, sung by Romain Valentino, and his testament Último Desejo of 1937, sung by Patrizia Di Malta); three songs of Brazilian interior music, (two by Gilberto Gil, the tongue-tongues De onde vem o baião, and Lamento Sertanejo, forró by accordionist Dominguinhos whose lyrics were written and dedicated to him by Gilberto Gil; and as well by Dominguinhos, the song Sanfona Sentida); and the splendid and intense choro Ingênuo by Pixinguinha, also composed between the '20s and ‘30s, adapted in Italian by Patrizia Di Malta. Completes the CD the track Bugiardo e Incosciente, and Italian adaptations by Paolo Limiti of La Tieta by Joan Manuel Serrat - Mina's hit in the late ‘60s; and some evergreen in Spanish as Historia de un amor (by Carlos Almaran, from Panama, 1955), adventurously hatched on an Afro-Peruvian rhythm of landò; the Guarani 1948 song Recuerdos de Ypacarai by Demetrio Ortiz, born in Paraguay; and the Mexican Cuccurucucú Paloma, written by Tomas Mendez in 1954, according to some listeners and critics the most intense piece of the collection. At the end of the CD, a naked and raw version of the Habanera from Bizet’s Carmen. Biset's Bizet's Carmen (1875). voice and accordion, without the usual lyrical affectations.
