DAVID FELDMAN - 'piano'


'piano' is the new solo CD by David Feldman - so even with minuscule p because not only refers to his instrument, but is a true translation of the printed sound to this album, which brings an intimate, serene and mild climate. As the Italians say, 'piano'!

David debuted on record in 2009 with the acclaimed 'Sound the Lane', but it all started four years ago when, at age 27, on the stage of the old 'Mistura Fina', an anthology night promoted by CJUB, snatched the public that a packed house deserves praise as the critical Luiz Orlando Carneiro: ... "Feldman belongs the bold, intense line of pianists that combine a concertístic posture and a technique that notion that jazz is basically the sound of surprise" .

Now, at the 36, he delves into his instrument, making a record where the piano reigns, highlighting his composer side, featuring original songs and great lyricism. Of the ten tracks, six are original compositions: Chobim, O Latido do Cachorro, Sliding Ways, Bad Relation, Tete and Esqueceram de Mim no Aeroporto. Also on the CD there are songs already known to the public, but they've won a drapery admirable harmony, as Primavera (Carlos Lyra), Conversa de Botequim (Noel Rosa), Sabiá (Antonio Carlos Jobim), and Tristeza de Nós Dois - this, recorded on his first album (with Paulo Braga on drums and Sergio Barrozo on bass), had his solo piano version on this CD, where David gives a new meaning to the music, deconstructing it and reconstructing it in a surprising way, which justifies its re-recording.

In 'piano' David shows his many musical faces, exploring not only the melodic romanticism, but also his sense of humor. The first track of the CD Spring is possible to see their musical subtlety and elegance, a romantic interpretation, without excesses, where at one point the pianist walks the universe classics like Debussy. And that elegance can still be seen on tracks like Tetê, Sabia and Chobim - his first authorial composition revealed in the disk, where the shows that came as a songwriter, honoring two great landmarks of Western music: Chopin and Jobim.

 

His sense of humor was already revealed in the second track, Conversation in the Pub, where the pianist shows his 'playful' side, making one himself, with a piano responding to the other duo. The same is true in Esqueceram de Mim no Aeroporto, where an instrument reacts to another, responding and sometimes mocking, thus keeping the spirit of the great American jazz musicians, whose motto was always fun! This unique feat was accomplished through overdub (record one track over the other), thus generating a 'conversation with vera', a true dueling pianos, in which the two pianists are David Feldman.

 

'piano' was produced by David himself, goes independent, and even before the release already receiving sincere compliments two biggest names in music as Paquito D'Rivera and Roberto Menescal, that says: .... "your hearing these interpretations, we evaluate the 'Musicão' ahead. Another great moment in instrumental music in Brazil." Without a doubt, is a special disc.
