Eight original compositions, bold and characterful, all written by the quartet members and some improvised ‘chips’ on the theme of Materical, which gives the name to the band. These are the elements of the first album of this formation that starting from jazz, crosses different worlds of sound.
In their music, swing is a basic element even when it is subterranean, useful in revealing the evocative power of the compositions rather than embellishing them in a mannered process.
Materical seeks a theatrical arrangement of the sound performance, through an incessant dialogue between the musicians. The absence of an overt leader is a precise choice for a collective responsibility for the development of the music.
