Katharsis - People And Places [Aut Records 080]

Put out on the circuit via the Davide Lorenzon run label that is Aut Records on May 16th, 2k22 is "People And Places", the first ever album outing by the 2k20 formed trio that is Katharsis. Comprised of Joseph Nowell, Giuseppe Sardina and Aut Records-staple Michele Bondesan on piano, double bass and drums respectively the group indulges deeply in tender harmonic structures led by the playful, meandering flow of intricate piano melodies atop a complex, yet subtle and subdued background foundation which provides surprisingly muscular and driving movemens in pieces like "Spider" whereas "Alfred" provides stripped down and classy BarJazz minimalisms with "La Citta Dei Murales" following on a similar, yet more late night-leaning path before "In Pieces" tentatively explores slightly more experimental, or advanced, compositional territories and "Dear Charles" waves goodbye on a deeply melancholic Jazz tip just to pick a few cuts off of this longplayer to provide a general feel of what is happening on this one sonically. One album to listen to in a vintage leather chair. Near a fireplace. With a glass of finest high proof spirits at hand. Nice.
