Samurau – Things Left Unsaid (2015)

  • Fusion 
  • Jazz 
  • Improvised music 
  • Experimental rock 
  • Mood music 
  • Post-rock

Comment: three friends decided to embark on with a band in 2014 and the year thereafter their first issue was released. Indeed, Michele Sanna (guitars), Matteo Muntoni (electric bass), and Alessandro Garau (drums) play sensitive music on their debut album where the listener can perceive diverse moments from a tickling jazz spectrum. Although it is mostly predominated by jazz music (indeed, the term “jazz” could denote very different things from bebop and hard bop to fusion to acid jazz/nu jazz) it is truly moody, picturesque as if conducted by the maestro Ennio Morricone himself. At times it is exalting, at times lethargic thereby calming down and stirring up the listener. At times one could discern the trio’s fondness to Chicagoan jazz-drenched post-rock scene, however, it happens in some tracks only. Maybe a counterpoint to it from real life is driving in cabriolet across the highway in an unhurried pace, at times stopping and making pauses to check surroundings and sights. The 8-notch issue is a part of the discography of La bèl.
