Guests: Enrico Rava & Antonello Salis

Recorded and mixed at Studio B of Centro di Produzione RadioRai, Rome, March 6-8, 2000

A co-production with RAI Radiotre

What distinguishes this outstanding release from others of the wonderfully eclectic Italian Instabile Orchestra is the fine recording quality and the unedited takes. With five convincing original tunes, a glorious interpretation of "Lover Man," a host of superb soloists, and the addition of special guests (trumpeter Enrico Rava and accordionist Antonello Salis), there is something for every lover of fine jazz. The orchestra mixes jazz with Italian folk, classical influences, and freestyle abstractions but, to its credit, never intellectualizes the music. The earthy, compelling improvisations by alto saxophonist Mario Schiano, trombonists Giancarlo Schiaffini and Sebi Tramontana, French hornist Martin Mayes, trumpeter Pino Minafra, and others equally talented mark the orchestra as an all-star conglomeration of the highest order. The fascinating compositions seem to encapsulate a unique Italian sensibility infused by historical norms. Thrilling and invigorating, this recording should satisfy the most discriminating tastes and open the Italian Instabile Orchestra to new admirers.

-Steven Loewy (All Music Guide)


The Italian Instabile Orchestra was founded by trumpeter Pino Minafra 10 years ago and made its debut (intended as a one-time event) at the Europa Jazz Festival in Noci. In 1992, the group first played outside Italy at festivals in France, Switzerland and Germany. In 1994 it recorded its first CD, followed by a 2-CD live recording in 1997 at a Pisa festival dedicated exclusively to the music of the Italian Instabile Orchestra and its subgroups. In 1999, the BIMhuis in Amsterdam hosted an Instabile Festival during which the ensemble first played pieces by non-members, namely Guus Janssen, Misha Mengelberg and Willem Breuker. The IIO has been dedicated to the cause of Italian creative music celebrating its regional differences. The idea of an intra-Italian orchestra is about blendings and distinctions and creative frictions, about disputation and argumentation which are a fundamental part of Italian culture. Pulling musicians from all regions and generations of the Italian new jazz, ranging from rural to urban, north to south, the IIO is a national melting-pot in the context of a large, cooperatively run jazz composers' ensemble.

On the occasion of its 10th anniversary, the IIO met at the RAI Studios in Rome to record its masterpiece including compositions and arrangements by such outstanding band members as Gianluigi Trovesi, Pino Minafra and Giancarlo Schiaffini and featuring great guest soloists Enrico Rava and Antonello Salis. The unique quality of this orchestra's music comes from embracing the tensions between classical intimations (allusions to Scarlatti, Xenakis and others), folk traditions (brass bands, accordion, marches, renaissance dance forms), radical harmonic orchestrations, free jazz improvisation and musical theatricality. It is music "that gets the blood pounding, the mind clicking, and the spirit soaring" (Art Lange).
