Enrico Intra - Jazz In Fabbrica LP
Release Date: July 9th, 2021
Cinedelic Records present a reissue of Enrico Intra's Jazz In Fabbrica (Jazz In The Factory), originally released in 1972. Pianist, composer, arranger, and conductor, among the most important ones in the history of European jazz, Enrico Intra has developed a poetics aiming at the encounter between the most exquisitely jazz language and contemporary music of a cultured matrix, and for this reason he was among the first Italian musicians to develop a "European" concept of jazz.
"Nuova Civiltà" suite, certainly one of his best-known compositions, often also interpreted by Gerry Mulligan, deeply combines blues and tradition, adhering to the most radical trends of the music scene. A challenge to established formal and expressive schemes. Personnel: Sergio Fanni - trumpet, flugelhorn; Giancarlo Barigozzi - tenor sax, flute; Enrico Intra - piano; Carlo Milano - double bass; Carlo Sola - drums. Recorded in Ratti's Factory in Guanzate (Como) on October 31, 1972.
