Marcella Carboni is the "jazz harp" and not only in Italy.
Still chime is the name of the new exciting project by Marcella Carboni, one of the few Italian jazz harpists who has been able to carve out a leading role with its unusual tool. Increasingly, she was invited in international contexts where his way of interpreting the harp, his vision of the music on the border between improvised music and disparate elements together (ethnic, world music, classical). Her artistic caliber, put her in the spotlight. Leading a quartet that brings together many of the pieces that the Sardinian musician has touched in his artistic career: Francesca Corrias (voice), Yuri Goloubev (bass) and Francesco D'Auria (drums and percussion).
In particular, we find another woman of Sardinian origin, Francesca Corrias, with whom she returns to work after having shared the beginnings over ten years ago. Francesca Corrias has become an extraordinary character, increasingly sought after for the qualities of great performer: singer with a versatile tone, with great musicality and above all able to express themselves in different genres with extreme ease, it is also perfectly capable of singing in different languages with correct diction: in this record Francesca sings in English, Portuguese and also in the Sardinian dialect.
The leader Marcella carboni finds the russian bass player with whom he worked in the trio formul , and the harmonic player Max De Aloe with whom he duets in the recent Cd "Pop Harp". Added to this is the contribution of Francesco D'Auria, multi-instrumentalist, drummer and percussionist of great artistry, perfect in this context for its ability to give an accurate color to the songs.
A borderline project, crossing various genres, with jazz in the head. Repertoire that ranges from Ellington to Pieranunzi, from Stevie Wonder to Dorothy Ashby, withsome original songs sung in different languages, collective improvisation and lush arrangements.
"Still Chime" is this: what "still resonates" for beauty, personality, history and imagination.
