After many great collaborations with italian and international musicians, Renato Cordovani, boosted by the energy of his younger collaborators (Stefano Tamborrino and Emanuele Parrini among them), finally releases his debut album, recorded live at NOF gallery in Florence.
We are happy that he decided to release it with us. Not only because we find the music of the album intriguing and exciting, but also because, both in his music and in his collaborations, we continuously find references (like a noisy network, silently built) to our musical heritage. First and foremost the collaboration with two musicians that also appears in our catalogue and that we are personally linked to: Tristan Honsinger and Matthias Schubert.
His works in collaboration with poets and the references to Dada aesthetic is probably the key to understand this manifold yet coherent album where one will hear echoes of the Art Ensemble Of Chicago, the brass-bands repertoire and the European impro-scene, all spiced up with an ironic, surreal and desecrating approach.
Cordovani’s Cordonbleux is the synthesis of a path that started many years ago. Poetry, Dadaism and a performative attitude are the living ingredients of the band. A contemporary gaze to the 70’s avant-garde, intensively joyous!
