“LIVE AT ACUTO JAZZ” is Lucia Ianniello’s second CD as a bandleader, produced on SLAM, a year and a half after her first one.
This album is meant to close the circle of the music research around the figure of Horace Tapscott and the Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra (P.A.P.A.) which the trumpeter started tracing with her first CD “MAINTENANT” (SLAMCD 566). The new album is a live record made during the Acuto Jazz Festival (Fr), Italy, which took place in a fascinating setting of the Saint Sebastian’s Church, built in 12th century and richly frescoed in 16th century. It is a tribute to the founders and main protagonists of that lively artistic movement of the African-American community in Los Angeles, which developed in the last forty years of the 20th century.
On this CD, in addition to her original compositions, there are songs from the P.A.P.A.’s repertoire, especially those of Horace Tapscott and Jesse Sharps, Fuasi Abdul-Khaliq and Michael Session who Tapscott used to delegate to conduct the Arkestra in the ‘70s. There is also a song of pianist and singer, Linda Hill, one of the founders and a very active member of the movement of which the Arkestra was the musical and collective expression.
The quintet gives an original interpretation of this repertoire. The arrangements are drumless while the voice (except for two songs with a text), is instrumental. There is a lot of space for collective improvisation and the research of music expression goes towards the timbre and melody, away from mere virtuosity.

Lucia Ianniello play C trumpet along with ”objects” leading a creative and melodic team of Diana Torti/voc, Andrea Polinilli/ss-as-fl, Paolo Tombolesi/key and Cristina Patrizi/eb through a wondrous concert in Italy. Ianniello’s tone is warm, whether open as on the floating “Our Summer” iwht Polinelli’s flute a=or the free bopping “Eternal Egypt Suite” with Tombolesi’s exotic piano, or muted as on her dreamy “Other” with Torti’s voice serving up a modern madrigal. A pair of Horace Tapscott pieces, the lyrical “Little Africa” and bluesy “Ballad For Samuel” display the melodic flexibility of the band, with Torti’s voice creating rich textures with the leader’s horn. Glowing embers of sound. George W. Harris http://www.jazzweekly.com/2017/10/jam-with-slamlucia-ianniello-live-at-acuto-jazz-anatma-anatma-glowering-figs-glowering-figs/

Sonoritŕ cosmiche, astratte, visionarie, avvolte in un’atmosfera immaginifica. Live At Acuto Jazz č la nuova creazione discografica partorita dall’audace trombettista e compositrice Lucia Ianniello, che per questo progetto si affida al vivido estro di Diana Torti (voce), Andrea Polinelli (sax soprano, sax alto e flauto), Paolo Tombolesi (tastiere) e Cristina Patrizi (basso). Il CD, registrato dal vivo, contiene nove brani, di cui tre frutto dell’acume creativo dell’autrice del disco, mentre Peyote Song No. III (Jesse Sharps), Little Africa (Linda Hill – Horace Tapscott), Desert Fairy Princess (Jesse Sharps), Quagmire Manor at Five A.M. (Michael Session), Ballad for Samuel (Horace Tapscott) ed Eternal Egypt Suite, part 4 – of four parts (Fuasi Abdul Khaliq) completano la tracklist. Il mood criptico di Our Summer crea un’intensa suspense. Qui Ianniello, Polinelli, Tombolesi e Patrizi dialogano veracemente dando vita a un flusso sonoro e ad architetture armoniche di ottima fattura. In Other il climax č ipnotico, ammantante. L’incedere di Lucia Ianniello č profondamente ispirato, etereo, cosě come č magnetica la vocalitŕ di Diana Torti, entrambe sostenute dal pianismo altamente tensivo e inebriante di Tombolesi. Le colorazioni esotiche di Maintenant lasciano letteralmente con il fiato sospeso. L’eloquio della trombettista č evocativo, pervasivo. Gli sbalorditivi vocalizzi di Diana Torti, curati da una dinamica assai raffinata, creano un pathos mozzafiato. Live At Acuto Jazz rappresenta un erudito e interessante mélange incardinato su free, avant-garde jazz, etno jazz e world music, ornato da alcune sfumature tendenti al serialismo e alla dodecafonia. Questo album brilla per autentica creativitŕ estemporanea e ardente desiderio di sperimentazione e innovazione, in cui l’effetto sorpresa sembra essere una sorta di mantra.

Cosmic, abstract, visionary sonorities, enveloped in an imaginative atmosphere. Live At Acuto Jazz is the new record label created by the austere trumpeter and composer Lucia Ianniello, who for this project relies on the vivid estro of Diana Torti (voice), Andrea Polinelli (soprano sax, high sax and flute), Paolo Tombolesi keyboards) and Cristina Patrizi (bass). The live CD contains nine tracks, three of which are the creations of the author of the album, while Peyote Song No. III (Jesse Sharps), Little Africa (Linda Hill - Horace Tapscott), Desert Fairy Princess Jesse Sharps), Quagmire Manor at Five AM (Michael Session), Ballad for Samuel (Horace Tapscott) and Eternal Egypt Suite, part 4 - of four parts (Fuasi Abdul Khaliq) complete the tracklist. The cryptic mood of Our Summer creates an intense suspense. Here Ianniello, Polinelli, Tombolesi and Patrizi dialogue truthfully creating a sound stream and harmonious architectures of great workmanship. In Other the climax is hypnotic, cunning. Lucia Ianniello's approach is deeply inspired, ethereal, as is the magnetic voice of Diana Torti, both supported by the highly tense and inebriating pianist of Tombolesi. The exotic colors of Maintenant literally leave with the breath suspended. The trumpeter's eloquence is evocative, pervasive. The stunning vocals of Diana Torti, curated by a very refined dynamics, create a breathtaking pathos. Live At Acuto Jazz is an erudite and interesting mélange encardined on free, avant-garde jazz, ethno jazz and world music, adorned with some shades of serialism and dodecaphony. This album shines for authentic, extravagant creativity and fiery desire for experimentation and innovation, in which the surprise effect seems to be a kind of mantra.

Questo disco č una ripresa del materiale musicale, ( originals a firma della leder e brani di Horace Tapscott o di musicisti della sua Pan Afrikan Arkestra), che la musicista romana aveva giŕ presentato, con ottimo consenso di critica, nel 2015, nel suo primo cd intitolato Maintenant. La formazione che aveva inciso quel cd era un quartetto che vedeva impegnato il compianto chitarrista Giuseppe La Spina. In questo disco si aggiungono al nucleo iniziale del gruppo il polistrumentista Andrea Polinelli e la bassista Cristina Patrizi.
La nuova formazione mette ancora piů in luce la peculiaritŕ musicali della Ianniello: un lirismo intenso e austero, espresso con un linguaggio quasi cameristico - significativa la scelta di non utilizzare la batteria, cosě come quella di utilizzare la voce suggestiva di Diana Torti come un elemento orchestrale - e un forte interesse per la sperimentazione che non va mai a scapito della dimensione melodica.
Questa scelta poetica emerge in pieno nelle riproposizioni della musica legata alla grande esperienza artistica e sociale di Horace Tapscott. La musica della Arkestra aveva spesso un carattere epico, evocativo di un Africa mitica e sognata. La Ianniello e i suoi partner immergono brani magniloquenti come Peyote Song No III o Desert Fairy Princess (entrambi di Jessie Sharp) in un'atmosfera in cui aleggiano elementi di musica contemporanea (grazie anche al sapiente uso dell’elettronica e agli interventi sempre puntuali della voce di Diana Torti), echi di sonoritŕ etniche (evocati dal flauto di Andrea Polinelli), sequenze d’improvvisazione libera, momenti di grande intensitŕ melodica.
Nella storia dell’ascolto di questo cd non mancano nemmeno episodi jazzistici "tradizionali" di buon spessore come Little Africa e Ballad For Samuel (a firma dello stesso Tapscott o Quagmire Manor at Five A.M., dovuto alla penna di Michael Session che fu membro dell’Arkestra. Notevoli nel primo e nel terzo di questi brani l’intervento solistico della vocalist cosě in che modo il lavoro svolto dai sax di Andrea Polinelli. Paolo Tombolesi si destreggia abilmente fra sequenze classiche ed escursioni sulle tastiere elettroniche. Cristina Patrizi aggiunge, con il suo basso elettrico un colore del tutto particolare, del tutto particolare alla giŕ insolita tavolozza timbrica del gruppo.
Il suono della tromba della leader č sempre essenziale e, al tempo stesso, pieno di lancinante lirismo.
Un buon disco, frutto di una concezione poetica originale e nutrito dello studio di una vicenda, quella di Horace Tapscott, ancora oggi troppo poco conosciuta.

This record is a resumption of musical material (originals by signing the leder and songs by Horace Tapscott or by musicians of his Pan Afrikan Arkestra), which the Roman musician had already presented, with great consensus of critics, in 2015, in his first Cd titled Maintenant. The training that he recorded was a quartet that saw the busy guitarist Giuseppe La Spina busy. In this record, the polistrumentist Andrea Polinelli and the bassist Cristina Patrizi are added to the group's initial nucleus.
The new formation further reveals Ianniello's musical peculiarities: an intense and austere lyricism expressed in an almost chamber language - the choice of not using the battery, as well as the use of the suggestive voice of Diana Torti as an element Orchestral - and a strong interest in experimentation that never goes against the melodic dimension.
This poetic choice emerges fully in the repertoire of music linked to the great artistic and social experience of Horace Tapscott. Arkestra's music often had an epic character, evocative of a mythical and dreamed Africa. Ianniello and his partners are immersed in magniloquent pieces such as Peyote Song No III or Desert Fairy Princess (both of Jessie Sharp) in an atmosphere of contemporary music elements (thanks to the wise use of electronics and the timely interventions of voice By Diana Torti), echoes of ethnic sounds (evoked by Andrea Polinelli's flute), sequences of free improvisation, moments of great melodic intensity.
In the history of listening to this cd, there are not even "traditional" jazz-like episodes such as Little Africa and Ballad For Samuel (signed by Tapscott or Quagmire Manor at Five AM, due to Michael Session's pen, In the first and third of these songs, the vocalist's solo work was remarkable, so how did the work of Andrea Polinelli's sax. Paolo Tombolesi cleverly trains classical sequences and excursions on electronic keyboards. His electric bass is a very special color, very particular to the unusual timbral palette of the band.
The leader's trumpet sound is always essential and at the same time full of heart breaking lyricalism.
A good disc, the result of an original poetic conception, and nourished by the story of Horace Tapscott's story, which is still too little known today.

Il nuovo disco della trombettista Lucia Ianniello č un live molto speciale tenuto ad Acuto nella Chiesa di San Sebastiano, risalente al XII secolo. C’č un’acustica speciale ed un pubblico in sintonia con gli artisti cosě che la musica fluisce in modo organico ma anche con un fascino che per forza di cose non si ritrova negli studi di registrazione contemporanei. Il gruppo č completato da Diana Torti alla voce, Andrea Polinelli ai sax soprano e contralto ed al flauto, Paolo Tombolesi alle tastiere e Cristina Patrizi al basso elettrico. C’é un nuovo repertorio, ma restano lo stesso alcune delle composizioni eseguite dalla Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra di Horace Tapscott e Jesse Sharps che avevano trovato spazio nel disco precedente. La musica resta sempre moderna, caratterizzata dalla mancanza di una batteria che impone un suo ritmo e dalle tastiere di Tombolesi, in grado di tirare fuori tantissimi suoni e rumori. La leader utilizza oggetti vari accanto alla tromba, su cui emette suoni molto lirici e liquidi, a volte con inflessioni che ricordano un collega famoso come John Hassell. Nell’interpretazione del gruppo le composizioni acquistano una nuova forma, Peyote Song No. III ha una bella melodia e vive degli efetti elettronici di Tombolesi, cosě come Other scritto dalla Ianniello, che si apre prima con le tastiere elettriche e poi con il piano acustico, dopo arrivano la tromba e la voce ed insieme contribuiscono a creare un’atmosfera misteriosa e magica. Little Africa č di Horace Tapscott, anche qui č il pianoforte a gestire l’introduzione, poi la voce della Torti canta i versi, dopo si aggiungono gli altri e si arriva ad atmosfere di un jazz molto raffinato. Il brano finale č di Fuasi Abdul Khaliw, anche lui un musicista che proviene da Los Angeles, e chiude il concerto con suoni inusuali, da sottolineare il bell’assolo al flauto di Andrea Polinelli.

The new record of the trumpeter Lucia Ianniello is a very special live at Acuto in the church of San Sebastiano, dating back to the 12th century. There is a special acoustics and an audience in tune with artists so that music flows in an organic way but also with a charm that for all things can not be found in contemporary recording studios. The group is complemented by Diana Torti, Andrea Polinelli with soprano and alto sax and flute, Paolo Tombolesi on keyboards and Cristina Patrizi on electric bass. There is a new repertoire, but there are still some of the compositions performed by Horace Tapscott's Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra and Jesse Sharps who had found space in the previous album. The music is always modern, characterized by the lack of a battery that imposes its own rhythm and the keyboards of Tombolesi, which can draw lots of sounds and noises. The leader uses various objects next to the trumpet, on which he plays very lyrical and liquid sounds, sometimes with inflections recalling a famous colleague like John Hassell. In the group's interpretation the compositions acquire a new form, Peyote Song No. III has a beautiful melody and lives on the electronic efetics of Tombolesi, as well as Other written by Ianniello, which opens with electric keyboards and then with acoustic piano , After the trumpet and the voice arrive and together they create a mysterious and magical atmosphere. Little Africa is by Horace Tapscott, here is the piano to handle the introduction, then Torti's voice sings the verses, after adding the others and arriving at the atmosphere of a very refined jazz. The final piece is Fuasi Abdul Khaliw, also a musician from Los Angeles, and closes the concert with unusual sounds, to emphasize the beautiful suede at the flute of Andrea Polinelli.

Lucia Ianniello trombita művész és zeneszerző alapvető műfaja a jazz, de szereti ezt a műfajt ötvözni más zenei kifejezés formákkal, mint a szabad improvizáció vagy a zenei performansz. Zenei tanulmányait a Frosinone-ben müködő “L. Refice” konzervatóriumban végezte, ezt követően számos jelentős mesterkurzus hallgatója volt. Zenei pályája 200 5-ben indult, Olaszország szerte lépett fel különböző együttesekben és olyan nagyzenekarokban amelyeket Eugenio Colombo, Greg Burk, Roberto Spadoni neve fémjelzett.
2015 szeptemberében jelent meg első önálló lemeze a Maintenant. A lemezen kvartett formációban hallható Lucia Ianniello Bb és C trombiták, szárnykürt, és tárgyak, Diana Torti ének, Giuseppe La Spina gitár és Paolo Tombolesi Tombolesi billentyűs hangszerek.

A kápolna kiváló akusztikája nagyszerűen keretezi be ezt a finom dallamos zenét, az egymás játékstílusához rendkívül jól alkalmazkodó zenészek játéka maradandó élményt nyújt a hallgatónak.
