Parco della Musica Records presents “Oscene rivolte,” the new album by the National Jazz Young Talent Orchestra led by Paolo Damiani and produced with the support of Mibac and Siae as part of the “S’Illumina” initiative. A double disc of music between composition and improvisation. The ONJGT ensemble is composed of eleven young talents under 35 guided by the experience of the great jazz musician Paul Damiani and offers an original repertoire gathered around the etymological idea of “obscene,” i.e., “ob skené,” “offstage” understood as institution, academy, stage routine, almost an out-of-place but more provocative.
“We sing “obscene” as if it meant “offstage,” that which cannot be represented, outside the academy and the already heard, invisible in itself. Not inhabiting the stage means getting lost and going elsewhere, searching for the out-of-sense. Improvisation leads us to other places, to unforeseen revolutions, disappearing as needed. From the scene one escapes and re-enters, to peer inside oneself in a new way, with other listening. Does one not also disappear for the joy of returning home? Here is the pleasure of an intimate and fragile gaze, as darkness falls,” explains Paolo Damiani.
