Eliane Elias' return to the Blue Note label after a decade working elsewhere is a triumph. This salute to the late pianist Bill Evans, one of her favorite players, explores a number of songs he recorded, including both standards and originals. Evans' bassist from his final trio, Marc Johnson, is not only a long-time collaborator with Elias but also her husband; drummer Joey Baron rounds out the band. While Elias is influenced by Evans' playing style, his arrangements are only a launching pad for her approach to each tune; never does she sound like an obvious Evans clone. Her lush take of "My Foolish Heart" features Johnson on the late Scott LaFaro's bass (the talented Evans sideman who died in a 1961 car wreck just ten days after recording the landmark sets with the pianist at the Village Vanguard).

So Far So Close is the fourth studio album by Brazilian jazz artist Eliane Elias. This album is great. It is mainly straight ahead jazz with touches of fusion due to the use of synthesizers along with her fantastic piano playing. Like most of her earlier albums her signing is minimal and mainly adds another musical sound more than anything else. Surprisingly, this album has barely a hint of Latin or Brazilian flavor.

This release is a change of pace for Eliane Elias. Instead of interpreting Brazilian songs, fusion, or modern bop, Elias shows off her classical technique on a set of acoustic solos plus six duets with Herbie Hancock. She really digs into the standards (sometimes sounding a little like Keith Jarrett) and creates some fairly free and unexpected ideas while putting the accent on lyricism. Some of the music is introspective, and there are wandering sections, but the net results are logical and enjoyable. As for the duets, Elias and Hancock mostly stay out of each other's way, which is an accomplishment when one considers that the four-part "Messages" is a series of free improvisations. There are playful spots (particularly on the adventurous ten-minute rendition of "The Way You Look Tonight") and, since Elias knows Hancock's style well (and was clearly thrilled to have him on the date), their collaborations work quite well.

Elias Canetti - La rapidità dello spirito
Italian | 2018 | 187 pages | ASIN: B07BFDDQVR | EPUB | 1,5 MB

«La rapidità dello spirito – tutto il resto che si dice dello spirito sono scappatoie che vogliono mascherare la sua assenza. Si vive per questi istanti di rapidità che zampillano come pozzi artesiani dalla desolazione dell’indolenza». È una delle prime riflessioni di questa nuova raccolta degli «appunti» di Canetti, vergati nella casa di Hampstead, in Inghilterra, negli anni che precedono e seguono la pubblicazione di "Massa e potere". Alla «rapidità dello spirito» si accompagna la «brevità dei cinesi», e sono i presupposti di fulminee corse nel tempo e nello spazio (da un millennio all’altro, in Africa, in Australia, persino sulla Luna), di sconvolgenti agnizioni, di brucianti ritratti e frammenti di autoritratto, incontri con padri e patriarchi, con amici vecchi e nuovi, con Plutarco e con Dante, con Machiavelli, Cervantes e Tolstoj, con Gogol’ e Kafka, fino al «nuovo fratello» Cesare Pavese, al quale Canetti si scopre legato da una insospettata affinità..

Pochi scrittori hanno oggi il grande pregio di Elias Canetti. Romanziere, saggista, drammaturgo, autore di un ricchissimo diario, la sua opera, a partire dagli Anni Trenta, è tutto un ostinato e ossessivo combattimento con alcuni grandi temi: la massa, il potere, la metamorfosi, il rifiuto della morte, riflessi ogni volta in forme diverse, affrontati nei loro più elusivi segreti, colti nelle più varie manifestazioni, illuminati dall’interpretazione dei testi più diversi: antropologici, letterari, storici, filosofici..
