More I get older, more I get angry for the banality of the story about jazz and about its characters limited in common places varying from the “always smiling jolly fellow” to the “genius and recklessness”, passing through a series of readymade sentences I want to spare to you and to myself.
More I get older, more I rejoice when I run up into the works of musicians of every generation that do not stop at the stereotyped easy formulas, but, on the reverse, activate in works of research and further analysis, driven by an idea of jazz as an important crossroads of cultural contributions.
The new reading of Charles Mingus’ masterpieces carried out by Maria Vicentini and Salvatore Maiore, on one side keeps its sparkling thematic flow with brilliance, on the other enhances its contrapuntal values, the vocation for dialogue, the courage of experimentation, and the taste for colours, typical of the beloved Ellington, but also of Oscar Pettiford, here deliciously honoured with “O.P.”, not by chance he himself being a cellist and a double bass player as well.
All this with the instrumental competence, the commitment in planning the course, the performance “without tricks and deceits”, but in the same time the lightness and the subtle irony both in the improvisations and in the obligatos characterising mature but still fresh and creative musicians, so good in not showing themselves too serious, thus showing their seriousness and reliability.
All considered, this is a good service paid to Mingus, who, if it were still necessary, reveals to be an artist with wide visions, much more than the arrogant and vain quarrelsome person superficially described by many voices, including his own.
