Tredici Bacci / ENPSE
Vai! Vai! Vai!/Concetti [CASSETTE with download code]
Label: Astral Spirits
Released in: USA
"The second release from Tredici Bacci following their incredible debut "The Thirteen Kisses" on NNA Tapes in April 2014. Here we find Tredici Bacci's leader Simon Hanes and his 14 piece ensemble delving deeper into incredible homages to the late 60's and 70's Italian soundtrack zone with his own film score to "Vai! Vai! Vai!" (a fake film that will probably never exist) as well as a new sister group ENPSE (Ensemble for the Exploration of New Perspectives in Collective Sound Exploration) which explores the group improv sounds similar to Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza on their side of the tape, "Concetti."
On Vai! Vai! Vai!, we find Simon with the same 14 piece ensemble deeper into a more nuanced and evocative sound world. The pieces flow together more cohesively and suggest an actual story-arc. Sure there are the theme songs like opening track "Papa Schizzare" and 70's surf influenced "Sesso in Futuro" but on tracks like "L'amore e la tragedia sul treno" and "Coda" Tredici Bacci hit on more subtle notes. "Coda" in particular is one of the more beautiful and evocative interludes of film music that I've heard since the days of Henry Mancini, Michel Legrand or Georges Delerue. On Concetti we are confronted with a very different beast from the opening scream. ENPSE is a brilliant homage to Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza, from more direct references like "con un colpo discotecha" but also streches some of Gruppo's original ideas into new territories between modern composition, drone, free jazz and improv."-Astral Spirits
