descriptions, reviews, &c.

"This is one more proof that jazz, and blues for that matter, turned to be a universal language. Roots Magic is an Italian quartet, and yes, they play the Blues. A sort of Avant-Garde Blues, to be more exact. The group consists of Alberto Popolla - clarinets, Errico Defabritiis - alto sax, Gianfranco Tedeschi - double bass and Fabrizio Spera - drums, plus guest Luca Venitucci - organ. Two of the tracks of this album are from members of the band but the main content is formed by covers. Some come from the Delta Blues repertoire (Blind Willie Johnson, Charley Patton) and are submitted to unusual arrangements, and others were composed by distinguished Free Jazz. musicians like Julius Hemphill, Phil Cohran, John Carter, Sun Ra and Olu Dara, and Roots Magic squeeze the blues out of it. The concept is marvelous and the results are magnificent. A multiple picture including open form ballads, Afro-funk numbers and highly energetic free-jazz. Maybe only non-African-Americans could manipulate the tradition like this, but it does sound American. Thank God we live in a global village and history isn't something to keep stored at a museum."-Clean Feed

"Biography of Alberto Poppola

A brief biography:
A.P. writes: My first instrument was the electric bass and I played psychedelic music with an Italian rock band, MAGIC POTION, in the second half of the eighties. Then, I began to play clarinet and, with love and passion, the bass clarinet.
I played Balkan music with Dragan Trio and, with many other musicians and bands, Jazz and Experimental music. I like mixing the different influences in a only sound, my sound. I played and recorded with MICHEL GODARD, EUGENIO COLOMBO, JAMAL OUASSINI, LUCA VENITUCCI, GIANFRANCO TEDESCHI, GIANNI TROVALUSCI, G. TROVESI, J. HEINEMANN, ALESSANDRO GARAU, FABRIZIO SPERA, EMANUELE PARRINI, DAVID RYAN, SIMON ALLEN, IAN MITCHELL, MAMADOU DIABATE, ENZO ROCCO, VERYAN WESTON and many others.
I've recorded the cd "FRAMMENTI DI SCRITTURA PREMATURA" (http://www.imprint-profeta.com/) with Lesmi Carrozzieri Popolla Walker Ensemble.

Hot Tune plays since three years and we have had many collaborations before recording this first cd. The music is a mixing from rock to jazz (it can remember the Canterbury scene) and we have two special guests on cd: Eugenio Colombo (famous jazz player) sax and flute, and Marilena Paradisi, voice.
