Stuff go up to the head! This latest completely solo Bensusan’s album makes connoisseurs jump from their chairs. It is just so, the CD is really wonderful: less ethereal than in the precedent works, the touch on the strings is energetic. The sounds are very related to the European tradition with some Hispanic accents. The cover reproduces a painting by the Ecuadoran Jaime Zapata and other graphic design is by Allen Greenall.

 

Roba da andar giù di testa! Questo recente album di Bensusan, interamente da solista, ha fatto saltar dalle sedie gli intenditori. E’ giusto così, il cd è veramente meraviglioso: è meno etereo dei precedenti, il tocco sulle corde è energico, le sonorità molto legate alla tradizione europea con qualche accento spagnoleggiante, stupenda la registrazione. La copertina riproduce un quadro dell’equadoregno Jaime Zapata, gli altri disegni sono di Allen Greenall.
