Pastor, Stefano

Pastor, Stefano: Songs (Slam)
Label: Slam    
Released in: Great Britain    

"New solo album by Italian violinist Stefano Pastor, winner at Top Jazz 2010 and 2011, where Stefano makes a strict recapitulation of the lengthy research that brought him to his own playing, thus each sound on this CD, except for the vocals, comes direct from his violin, with no synthesizers or MIDI equipment. Songs is also a work which unfolds the artistic sensitivity of Pastor, his musical horizons, made of jazz and avant-garde, echoes of European modern music and Brazilian popular songs, with the blues his guiding light throughout. A work in which Stefano comes back to the use of vocals, as he says in his liner notes: "I come back to the chant as a further way to probe the song form, to make melody my own, and the more my singing appears technically non super-structured, the more I wish that the expression would be intimate and authentic, my feelings neither hidden nor increased, my soul naked"."-Slam
