This feels very private music and has a deeply raw edge to it in terms of emotional impact. Each piece moves in microscopic measure and remains careful in drawing out the physicality of trumpet, electronics and piano. Usually you hear Enrico Rava in more bravura situations and as for pianist Giovanni Guidi (to whose late father Mario the album is dedicated) his world is more the pristine sophistication of an ECM world of interiors. The catalyst is Matthew Herbert who adds unusual colours and shapes the record more towards the nihilism of free improv in the deft transfer of emphasis across the ensemble, his electronics a tense shell that protects and cajoles. Highly orginal, an album that will challenge your expectations and make you listen that bit more closely to the smallest of detail. Out now on Accidental Records
