Or "Same Things, New Words," like jazz making jazz great again. Full of befuddlement and quiet beauty......state and country.

About the Album

“New Things, Same Words”, the second album of the Italian pianist Angelo Mastronardi, is now available worldwide and in digital stores, produced by “GleAM Records” label. After his lucky debut with the piano trio album “Like at The Beginning”(Dodicilune/IRD), Angelo Mastronardi recorded a new album in quartet with Emanuele Coluccia: tenor and soprano sax; Stefano Rielli: double bass; Alex Semprevivo: drums. In line with former work, “New Things, Same Words” reveals in its title the key elements for the interpretation of the author’s concept map, referring to originality as a combination of pre-existing elements. Melodic spontaneity is combined with structural research. The recording includes all original compositions written by the Italian pianist except for track 6, written by Emanuele Coluccia. For the first time the author introduces new instruments like Fender Rhodes (tracks 3, 4), soprano saxophone (tracks 1, 2) and tenor saxophone (tracks 3, 5, 6, 7). The harmonic language is more complex, quite in opposition to the simple and songlike melodies, it hides sophisticated rhythmic textures and unusual metric solutions, in line with the research started by the pianist in his former album. Improvisations reveal the influence of the new American avant garde and the jazz tradition with a typical European sensibility for sound, space and dynamics.
