Giacomo Papetti / Small Choices - Awake [Aut Records 055]

Released via Berlin's Aut Records on February 10th, 2k20 is "Awake", the new album effort by Giacomo Papetti-lead project Small Choices. Consisting of Mr. Papetti alongside Gabriele Rubino and Emanuele Mansicalo the trio caters a menu of 14 tunes rolled out over a total playtime of roughly 56 minutes, approaching the sonic world of Jazz and Jazz Noir from what we'd describe as an easier, more light-hearted angle than most of the labels releases have done so far, presenting a tender beautiful and romantic vibe in free-floating pieces like "Berceuse Triste" or "Passacaglia" whereas "Ma Fine Est Mon Commencement" presents a more folksy, naturalistic, yet also formal vibe, "Leads" increases the tension with a few darker tones before settling into a classy late night vibe whereas cuts like "Rete Di Saccio" or "Piano B / Soft And Languid"  are travelling down a carefully stripped down, yet not minimalist avenue to find unquestioned beauty in sound. Deep.
