The Ars3 trio (Grossi, Zanchi and Castiglioni) returned with their own collective intelligence, their own collective sensitivity, their own patterns, harmonies, melodies, their unrestrained curiosity, their osmosis, and that special aftertaste of melancholy savoured with those jazz musicians who do not give in to the tyranny of swing, but prefer its sound, colours, atmospheres and mood. Here they are, for the delight of music, back again with a work that involves the "rasping" voice of Gian Maria Testa and, in conclusion, the exciting - and in a way - excited voice of Sheila Jordan. A celebration of peace that is not ideological, not factious. It is instead an ontological, intellectual peace, one of feelings, peace in music, meant not as a battle hymn but as a dream-like spur. Opening with “Masters of War” by Bob Dylan and closing with “Peace” by Horace Silver. This is what makes this CD a new and different transition from pop music to great jazz something that is also difficult to define, but that is certainly an example of sophistication, sensitivity and creativity.
