Nicolo Francesco Faraglia - Kissos [Aut Records 084]

Released as one of the latest pieces in the ever expanding and growing Aut Records catalogue is "Kissos", the labels 084 and the second full length album by Italian composer Nicolo Francesco Faraglia, realized in cooperation with Gabriele Evangelista and Nicholas Remondino. Spread out over roughly 40 minutes and a total of nine brand new pieces the trio explores an instrumental setting of electric guitar, double bass and drums, starting out on a tender, stripped down and caressing late night Jazz tip with the opening piece that is "Dithyrambos" which basically sets the tone for all things to come like the stripped down, melancholia-inducing beauty, bowed background strings and twangy, slowly cascading guitar melodies of "Echidnai", the similarly seductive minimalism of the subsequent "Epiphaneia" or the slightly more muscular and well defined rhythmic approach of "Oinops" which might be defined and pinpointed as the albums climax by some whereas others might probably pick the trippy, Future Jazz-leaning vibe of "Trieteris" as their personal highlight on this well recommended album. File under: beautiful late night listening.
