Edition of 200. Killer. A shadow-strafing suite of spidery rhythms and inquisitive jazz gestures, effortlessly binding avant instrumental dexterity with spacey feeling in a timeless style that could feasibly be dated to any point between the mid ‘70s heyday of jazz-fusion. Especially highly recommended if yr into Miles Davis 'Big Fun'.
In 2017 Giovanni di Domenico released an album with a big band (at least for my standards) of 12 musicians, the band was called Abschattungen and the album «The Ear Cannot Be Filled With Hearing ». Abschattungen in german means « shadowing » , or »shading » . To adumbrate. Aufheben, always in German, means « to keep » (material things) and « to abolish » (immaterial ones). It also means « to raise ». And « to reduce ». These 2 terms are the base of Di Domenico research on german phylosophy and abstract funk, mixing/finding threads in between these 2 « concepts » is one of my recent obsessions. « Reflection Is Circular » is the ideal continuation of « The Ear Cannot.... », being Aufheben the « reduced » version of Abschattungen. It comes as an LP, 200 copies limited edition on Silent Water and Mr Nakayasi."
