ROBERTA BALDIZZONE WHITE QUARTET
The compositions, once again created entirely by the pianist, offer a broader view of her compositional palette. The result is a work that encompasses multiple aspects of European jazz, from the 1970s to the present day, and incorporates many of her own influences. This time, the focus is on storytelling, while still maintaining a strong interest for experimentation. At the core of the musical exploration of this album lies the interaction between composition and improvisation, their fusion within the structure, and a search for timbral blends. Some Pictures explores the universe of images, whether they arise from paintings, memories, or snapshots of real events. The merging of images into sound passes through the sensitivity of four storytellers, guided by a score but left free to tell their own version of the story along the musical fabric. It is not so much about descriptive music or a synesthesia between distinct sensory spheres, but rather a pretext to infuse movement into the image and make the resulting music as 'alive' as possible.
