Description

Digitally remastered and expanded two CD edition of this 2004 release. This record represents Nicola Conte's music aesthetic from every angle. Always in balance between Jazz and Bossa Nova, revealing a compositive soul bounded to accomplished acoustic atmospheres. The composer's intention is to communicate not only through the music but through the lyrics too, showing a talented and learned songwriter. Inspired by the beat literature (The Dharma Bums is a true homage to Jack Kerouac) and that by the English one (Wanin' Moon is inspired by a Percy Shelley's poem), also the cinema and dramaturgy influenced the composer: Le Depart is a reassessment of the piece written in '67 by Krzysztof Komeda for the namesake Jerzy Skolimovsky's movie, and All Gone is a homage to Joseph Losey's "Il Servo," a '60s black-and-white movie directed by Harold Pinter.
