“Changes” isn’t just a title: it also represents a transformation, an evolution in Nicola Angelucci’s compositions. The Italian drummer, who in his previous discs had accustomed us to the predominance of rhythm and Afro-American influences, in “Changes” devotes more of his attention to melody, to lyricism. And it is precisely this enhanced lyrical constituent that has guided him in choosing his traveling companions for this project: Olivia Trummer, Luca Bulgarelli and Gabriele Mirabassi. Another striking particularity of “Changes” with respect to the norms that prevail in the jazz sphere, is that the album only features original and unreleased pieces, some of which are sung by Olivia Trummer, author of the lyrics in addition to being an enchanting interpreter and pianist. With “Changes” Angelucci offers us a vivid snapshot of the present times, an intense and limpid inner landscape.
