About the Album

This track is taken from the new Massimo Discepoli's album, "Last year, the next day", to be released on April, 2d on DOF label. This track is a mixture of spiritual jazz and ambient/electronic, featuring also a self-made chimes instrument In "Last year, the next day" musician Massimo Discepoli partially moves away from the slowly developing ambient atmospheres of his two previous albums, choosing instead to use musical structures closer to post-rock, jazz and progressive, thus creating eight instrumental pieces that draw evocative and abstract landscapes, in which electronics are combined with the numerous acoustic instruments used. As usual, the rhythmic aspect is of great importance, with the use of many percussions (some of them self-built) alongside the drums and repetitive and hypnotic patterns, which give a much more global sound to the album, without overwhelming the melodic strength that characterizes the songs, both the more intense ones and the introspective ballads. The result is a music without borders but at the same time abstract, reminiscent of the atmospheres of Peter Gabriel, David Sylvian, Tim Hecker and Portico Quartet.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
