Gabriele Coen & Atlante Sonoro
Duende (La Frontiera/CNI Music, Italy)
Everybody's got 'duende' these days, it seems. This Italian jazz quartet has it in abundance, although it ranges from the expected latin sounds into Turkey, Arabia and the Balkans with easy aplomb. Says Coen, 'I try to listen to the music of every country….Africa, India, the arab world, the european classic music….I love traditional music,popular music, and try to discover what other countries musically say...all music genres are linked in their intime essence.'
Gabriele Coen: soprano sax, clarinet
Pietro Lussu: piano
Marco Loddo: acoustic bass
Luca Caponi: drums, percussion.
Please note!Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
