Product Notes

LP version. Black Sweat Records present a reissue of Gaetano Liguori Collective Orchestra's self-titled album, originally released in 1976. The Collective Orchestra was a visionary, short-living creative music collective led by Gaetano Liguori, a main protagonist of Italian free jazz since the early '70s. It was an important attempt to put together young musicians from the two main towns in Italy, and it's respective leading figures, Milan and Rome. Previous attempts to set up anything similar were, in fact, either frustrated by rivalries between the various personalities or were destined to be one-off events. Liguori's vision is simply wonderful here - even bolder and more expressive than on his previous works for PDU - and the energy which he summons and transmits throughout is extraordinary. The near-telepathic interplay of the core set of Gaetano Liguori on piano, Roberto Bellatalla on double bass, Filippo Monico on drums, Guido Mazzon on trumpet, and young musicians Edoardo Ricci, Giancarlo Maurino and Massimo Urbani on soprano and alto saxophones, is given a richly expanded sound palette by the addition of Danilo Terenzi on trombone, Roberto Del Piano on Fender bass and Sandro Cesaroni on flute. There's something really magical about the reciprocity that occurs when he plays these exceptional improvisers and the album still possesses a "sense of the new" feel that is as gripping as anything recorded by Italian ensembles around the same time. The sound is strong and freely exploratory, at a level that's completely fresh and very striking, and is handled here with a wonderful balance between playful arrangements and fierce improvisations. Filled with power and imagination and originally released in 1976 on PDU.
