  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    This album is meant to close the circle of the music research around the figure of Horace Tapscott and the Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra (P.A.P.A.) which the trumpeter started tracing with her first CD “MAINTENANT” (SLAMCD 566).
    The new album is a live record made during the Acuto Jazz Festival (Fr), Italy, which took place in a fascinating setting of the Saint Sebastian’s Church, built in 12th century and richly frescoed in 16th century. It is a tribute to the founders and main protagonists of that lively artistic movement of the African-American community in Los Angeles, which developed in the last forty years of the 20th century.
    On this CD, in addition to her original compositions, there are songs from the P.A.P.A.’s repertoire, especially those of Horace Tapscott and Jesse Sharps, Fuasi Abdul-Khaliq and Michael Session who Tapscott used to delegate to conduct the Arkestra in the ‘70s. There is also a song of pianist and singer, Linda Hill, one of the founders and a very active member of the movement of which the Arkestra was the musical and collective expression.
    The quintet gives an original interpretation of this repertoire. The arrangements are drumless while the voice (except for two songs with a text), is instrumental. There is a lot of space for collective improvisation and the research of music expression goes towards the timbre and melody, away from mere virtuosity.

Our Summer 03:02
Other 05:20
Maintenant 08:49


It was August, 10, on the stream of the falling stars in the blue sky above Acuto. I was presenting my previous work, Maintenant (Slam), during the Acuto Jazz Festival, playing with partly different musicians and with a renewed repertory. The surprise to play in a unique and fascinating place such as the St. Sebastian’s Church, built in the 12th century and richly frescoed in the 16th century; the possibility to enjoy the round acoustics of the place and the sensitive audience in such an intimate setting. I didn’t want anything but to leave a trace of all this, like photographing the Perseids.
