CD review: Tiziano Bianchi – Relate 2019: Video, CD cover

‘Relate’ is the second album of the Italian trumpet player Tiziano Bianchi. The album produced by the Japanese / American trumpet legend Tiger Okoshi and features the Grammy Award winner Bill Frisell on guitar.

Recorded between Italy and the USA, ‘Relate’ presents seven original compositions by Tiziano Bianchi and one arrangement of the Lali Puna’s song ‘Nin-com-pop’. The band has two cells instead of the upright bass. The electronic elements, like synths and electronic drums, make the sound contemporary and more powerful than a regular jazz combo. The lyrics of the title track explain the positive message behind the album.

“The title track text expresses the message at the base of the disc. “Relate means” to relate “. It is important to do this while playing, because music requires interaction and a commonality of purpose. It is important to do this in the relationship with others and it would help to avoid many confrontations. It is important to do this in our being in the world; to relate deeply with what surrounds us, to obtain stimuli and savor what happens to us. “Tiziano Bianchi

“It seems that Tiziano and I have created a solid and unique collaboration as artists. Both careful and sincere craftsmen who like to spend hours creating music. Compared to its previous ‘Now and then’, it is clear that this album presents a stronger and more tangible message, more power, dynamism and complexity full of taste. His way of playing the trumpet has also grown a lot. Titian grows in his music and his music grows inside him. ”Tiger Okoshi
