TONI GERMANI QUARTET
Toni Germani, alto sax and vocal; Giovanni Ceccarelli, piano;
Mauro Gargano, double bass; Patrick Goraguer, drums.

This new CD by Toni Germani, his ninth as a leader and the first to appear on the SLAM label, presents all original compositions recorded by a trio of sensitive musicians based in Paris, France.
Germani writes: “It confirms my love for the melody with accompaniment, considered as the main way to express an intimate relationship between experience of life and experience of music. In fact, the approach is basically “expressionist” and narrative, because the improvisation is conceived as a variation on and a development of the expressive mood affirmed by the theme. But the chant’s eruption must be stopped, at a certain point, the song must end and the form claims its part: so the songs are closed … in a box.”

01/11/2016 George W. Harris

The most melodic of the albums is delivered by alto saxist/vocalist Toni Germani and his team of Giovanni Ceccarelli/p, Mauro Gargano/b ;and Patrick Goraguer/dr. He writes all the material, and it’s all very attractive and accessible. He’s got a sweet and sour Campari of a tone, and uses it well as the rhythm team delivers a sleek “Cercando Parole” and nimbly bopping “Little Big Aunt.” Ceccarelli’s piano is crystalline on the thoughtful “Las Angelas” while Goraguer’s brush’s subtly sashay on the alluring title piece. Germanic can be both passionate and romantic as on the rubato “Anno Che Va, Anno Che Viene,” yet every piece has a luscious groove. Excellent!George W.

TONI GERMANI [as/voc] has been kicking around for a couple of decades [DDQ Records and Splasch] and now has his first release on Slam Records: SONGS IN A BOX [SLAMCD 573]. Joining him on this 10/23 &12/3/15 set of 7 originals [70:07] are Giovanni Ceccarelli [p], Mauro
Gargano [b] and Patrick Goraguer [drm]. As a whole the album is dedicated to truth and freedom fighters while some of the dedications on individual compositions are interesting like to all the women named Angelica I have known of or on the one piece with vocals (sung in Italian) to all those who are destroying the planet or to all the migrants. This is a very laid back set, the leader plays in an un-rushed manner and with clearly formulated lines in a matter-of-fact style. Robert D Rusch, Cadence Oct 2016
