Slam Productions is glad to present the new solo album by Italian violinist Stefano Pastor, winner at Top Jazz 2010 and 2011. A work in which Stefano makes a strict recapitulation of the lengthy research that brought him to his own playing. This is why each sound you hear in this CD is uniquely generated by the violin, except for the vocals, using not synthesizers or MIDI equipment. Songs is also a work which unfolds the artistic sensitivity of Pastor, his musical horizons, made of jazz and avant-gard, echos of European modern music and Brazilian popular songs, with a north star always lighting over all: the blues as an authentic afro-american source. A work in which Stefano comes back to the use of vocals, as he says in his liner notes: “I come back to the chant as a further way to probe the song form, to make melody mine own, and the more my singing looks technically non super-structured, the more I wish that the expression would be intimate and authentic, my feelings neither hidden nor increased, my soul naked”.

TRANSLATED FROM ITALIAN
Entering the home stretch, let us come down to the south-east, where the Piedmont becomes the Alexandrian Liguria Genoa, to be exact in Campo Ligure, where lived for some years the violinist Stefano Pastor , who just recently released his latest album , Songs (SLAM), solitary journey (with extensive overdubs) through a handful of songs , in fact, from all sources, from Chico Buarque Gershwin, from Hendrix to Mingus. There are six songs in total, in which Pastor, as well as manipulate his violin (indicating that all of the sounds just come from there), sings, with his thin voice and a bit 'stunted somewhat reminiscent of the last Chet Baker . The results are remarkable, especially in odd-numbered tracks ( I Got Rhythm , Quem and voice and Purple Haze ), where - even in the even, for heaven's sake - the interweaving of the various instrumental voices generates surprises not to be underestimated.
