Golia, Vinny Quartet: Sfumato (Clean Feed)
Label: Clean Feed    
Released in: Portugal    

"Before being a musician, Vinny Golia was a painter. "Sfumato", the new album of Golia's quartet, is a direct reference to that visual background, alluding to the painting technique developed by Leonardo da Vinci to create the perception of depth and volume. The famous Mona Lisa is a consequence of that proceeding, and so is this magnificent record. But take notice: "Sfumato" isn't the typical "painting-turn-to-music" creation of the experimental sound art field: Golia's option for the audio medium made him a musician and not a sound sculptor. As such, he deals entirely with the formal elements that make music what it is historically, and even if he has an innovative approach, tonal / melodic phrasing and groovy poly-rhythmic sustenance is something he praises much. That's why he's also a composer in the traditional sense, dealing with counterpoint or cadenzas, even when a bit bizarre and broken. With Bradford, Filiano and Cline he can apply something analogous to the sfumato resources to the music they play here, but it's not brush work what they're doing."-Clean Feed
