About the album

Fascinating collaboration between lyrical Italian jazz improvisers Paolo Fresu and Daniele di Bonaventura and the transfixing voices of A Filetta from Corsica. Appealing combination of sound-colours and idioms, adds up to ‘Sketches of Corsica’. As the improvisers approach this regional music of universal appeal, Fresu’s pensive, romantic trumpet inevitably brings Milesian associations to mind, and the ingenious bandoneon of di Bonaventura implies ‘chamber music’ and ‘folk music’ in every breath of the bellows. Despite different instrumentation and different goals, the juxtaposition of ‘jazz’-informed creativity and vocal music in Mistico Mediterraneo has some affinities to the Officium project of Garabrek/Hilliard and will likely appeal to a similar audience.
