"Gestire lo Spazio"
Tiziano Zanotti - electric bass, acoustic piano
In January 2008 indie label Echoes released "Gestire lo Spazio", the latest solo effort of Italian bassist Tiziano Zanotti. A disc like no other: totally composed and played on a solo electric bass, with the supplement of very few and quite singular electronic effects and the fleeting "injection" of an acoustic piano.
All pieces have been composed by the bassist himself, except tracks 6-13 by Tiziano Zanotti/Nicola Ciarmatori.
This solo bass project had been around for quite a long time. It was first conceived as a live show, then was further developed and structured with all the energy required to face such a challenging effort. It was a challenge indeed, to show that the electric bass can be a valuable instrument in its own right on a whole disc, able to hold the listener's attention with no support other than a few and unobtrusive effects and percussion sounds (with overdubbing only in the final track).
"Gestire lo Spazio" is a sophisticated, varied, and deep disc. It presents a new, unique way of experiencing and playing the electric bass and evidences the artist's full expressive maturity as well as his perfect technique. It will immediately capture your attention with the beauty and fluency of its pieces, while hiding an underlying formal complexity, the incredibly varied shades produced by the bass, its familiarity with contemporary jazz and classical music, to name just a few of its distinctive features, while always looking for new inspirations and experimenting new possibilities. At the basis, a deep plunge into the artist's music world to develop his compositions, modify balances, explore new harmonies, all the time seeking to exploit the electric bass's full potential.
A very special cd, not to be missed by every bassist and generally by the lovers of borderless, beautiful music.
