Zorzi, Roberto – “Bang!” – [Ictus]
Surprises abound in this live 1990 rerelease from Italian guitar improviser Roberto Zorzi who lists 1960s prog among his inspirations and has gone on to record a half dozen more albums. Short pauses on all tracks. Improvised jazz that doesn’t get aggravating, gosh. A sea of experimentation with a few catchy repeats to sail on. Violin, drums, and alto sax are very prominent and sound great. #2 and 3 have some almost danceable bits that won my heart. #4 is a wicked little violin/drum number that could probably play well with some bluegrass. #5 is sax/piano territory.
