Aeham Ahmad - Il pianista di Yarmouk
Italian | 2018 | 348 pages | ISBN: 8893444909 | EPUB | 2,1 MB

Un giovane suona il pianoforte in mezzo a una strada bombardata. Suona per i suoi vicini, soprattutto per i bambini, per distrarli dalle atrocità della guerra: un'immagine che ha fatto il giro del mondo diventando un simbolo della catastrofe in Siria, ma anche dell'inestinguibile volontà dell'uomo di opporsi in ogni modo alla distruzione. Il suono di quello strumento ha raggiunto e commosso milioni di persone nel mondo su YouTube. Ora Aeham Ahmad racconta la propria storia: l'infanzia in una Siria ancora in pace, l'inizio delle rivolte preludio di una guerra terribile, la fuga per la stessa via battuta da migliaia di disperati. Un lungo e pericoloso viaggio via terra, la drammatica traversata del Mediterraneo, le insidie della rotta balcanica. Fino alla nuova vita in Germania, dove ha realizzato il suo sogno di artista e si esibisce nelle più importanti sale concerti, ma è costretto a vivere lontano dalla sua famiglia rimasta in Siria. Allora come oggi, è la musica che gli ha salvato la vita a dargli conforto e infondergli coraggio. La storia vera, raccontata in prima persona, di un pianista che ha sfidato le bombe e i terroristi in nome della sua musica, un caso mondiale, una commovente testimonianza di resistenza e fede nell'arte.

One of the most individualistic pianists, composers, and arrangers of his generation, Ahmad Jamal's disciplined technique and minimalist style had a huge impact on trumpeter Miles Davis, and Jamal is often cited as contributing to the development of cool jazz throughout the 1950s. Though Jamal was a highly technically proficient player, well-versed in the gymnastic idioms of swing and bebop, he chose to play in a more pared down and nuanced style. Which is to say that while he played with the skill of a virtuoso, it was often what he chose not to play that marked him as an innovator. Influenced by such pianists as Errol Garner, Art Tatum, and Nat King Cole, as well as big-band and orchestral music, Jamal developed his own boundary-pushing approach to modern jazz that incorporated an abundance of space, an adept use of tension and release, unexpected rhythmic phrasing and dynamics, and a highly melodic, compositional style.

Genre: Post-Bop

An octogenarian jazz master who exerted an influence on not just other pianists, but most prominently on Miles Davis, Ahmad Jamal has remained a vital presence on the music scene since the 1950s. His nuanced 2017 album, Marseille, finds him drawing upon his years of experience with a set of originals and covers that reveal just how vital and creative he remains. Primarily, the album showcases three distinctly varied interpretations of the title track, a hypnotic, modal ode to a city he loves, and to a greater extent a country that awarded him the prestigious Chevalier de L'Ordre des Arts et de Lettres in 2007. In fact, Marseille was even recorded in France; specifically in the Parisian suburb of Malakoff. Joining Jamal are several longtime associates including bassist James Cammack, former Jazz at Lincoln Center drummer Herlin Riley, and percussionist Manolo Badrena.
