David Lewis

February 2004

This Italian Quintet lives up to its name by creating driving grooves that take you on a journey. There is a brawny swagger about the playing of Buffa, Rigoletti and Malfatto that suggests Mingus meets the Dirty Dozen Brass Band. The nod to Mingus is evident in the urgent ostinato riff “Italian Fight Song” with its echo of “Haitian Fight Song”. Rigoletti begins “Liberi Tutti” with lyrical solo trumpet and the ensemble passages bridge solo statements by Buffa, Bodrato, Malfatto and Stizzoli in tur.

Maggio transforms lyrical art-music into a smouldering Blues groove while the tricky circular triplet riff of “Black Dance” show how this ensemble thrives on musical chllenge. Most of the solos are engaging and full of verve and passionate invention, notably Malfatto’s multiphonic smears in “Vitorchiano Paradise”, “Petrodollar” and “Nancy e Rajssa”. Lokomotiv is further proof the continuing vibrant health of Italy’s improvised music scene.
