Simone Di Benedetto / Zarkan - Timewise [Aut Records 057]

Put on the circuit on March 2nd, 2k20 via Berlin-based label Aut Records as a limited edition CD is "Timewise", the latest album by Simone Di Benedetto-led trio project Zarkan which she runs with fellow musicians Marco Colonna and Ivan Liuzzo. Based on clarinet / bass clarinet, percussion and double bass the musical triumvirate presents a tender, almost Classical or (Neo)Classical musical approach of sparse, score'esque qualities, creating a feathery, levitating, playful and positive, yet mindfully thought out feel which is at its best in the somewhat storytelling piece "Pause & Silence" which one might even describe as bordering Jazz Noir in its stripped down atmosphere whereas the lively, dramatic cut "In Time" surely is suitable for scoring theatre / screen / stage play just to pick two outstanding parts from a dozen that span a little more than 38 minutes. A remarkable non-stop performance, this is.
