ROSA BRUNELLO ‘Sounds Like Freedom’

Apr 15, 2022 | Jazz, Reviews

Spontaneous music without boundaries

Last year we featured Pioneered by Tommaso Cappellato, the inaugural release from Cappellato’s own Domanda imprint. It delighted us with every twist of its contemporary heart. Now, the label turns its attentions to Rosa Brunello, the Italian bass player and composer who meets her ‘music without boundaries’ motto head on with Sounds Like Freedom.

As has been the case with many a creative project of late, the pandemic scuppered Brunello’s original plans for the album, and the recording sessions became defined by spontaneous improvisation.

With contributions from UK Jazz star Yazz Ahmed, Arabic experimental music pioneer Maurice Louca, and Italian drumming sensation Marco Frattini, we foresee genre-free and groovesome good times ahead – Jubiabá certainly suggests so. With guest appearances from Luca Tapino (trombone, vocals, claps) and Claudia Bidoli & Enrico Terragnoli (vocals), there is a melding of electronic and acoustic timbres indicating a fresh and ageless soundscape.
