The music of Igor di Martino and his trio has incredible energy.
On your first hearing, captures you and immediately takes you to its sound world, where contemporary Jazz meets Brazilian music and the Mediterranean world.
We are sure that the sound of Igor Di Martino’s guitar will also appeal to the people of rock: after all the famous Jimmy Hendrix trio is still today a milestone of universal music.
The alchemy of Igor di Martino’s trio is truly magical. Let’s not forget that the trio is the essence of any musical genre and language, but obviously, in Jazz, this type of ensemble is central if you want to probe the dynamics and the most poetic soundscapes. Aldo Capasso on double bass and Marco Gagliano on drums are extraordinary musicians who allow Di Martino to express himself at his highest levels of virtuosity and expressiveness.
From the trios of Tal Farlow, Barney Kessel, Joe Pass, and Jim Hall, passing by Joe Diorio and Mick Goodrick up to John Scofield and Bill Frisell; Igor Di Martino seems to be covering the whole history of jazz guitar, carving out his own territory made up of suspended harmonies, refined phrasing, and a very dynamic rhythmic game.
The elegance in this new album is tangible, we can feel it in every track of this musical project. Each song is a story told with great emotional transport and technical expertise, that is the sum of experience, targeted listening, and important musical projects that have led Igor Di Martino to address an international audience, starting from his city, Naples, the cultural capital of the Mediterranean Sea.
Out of addiction (Glocal Music Records), it’s an album that I recommend everyone to listen to, and that could inspire even those listeners who identify themselves far from Jazz.
