Antonio Forcione Quartet Live in Tunbridge Wells
The release is recorded live at the Trinity Theatre in Tunbridge Wells, UK in 5.1 Dolby and 5.1 DTS soundtracks.
Antonio Forcione - nylon, steel string and fretless guitar. The fretless is called an Oudan, a custom conversion of a Persian Oud crossed with a guitar. It has 8 extra strings to give it a drone sound.
Jenny Adejayan - cello
Adriano Adewale - percussion. Amongst other things, drainpipes cut to different lengths and played with flip flops.
Nathan Thompson - double bass
With its deft combination of acoustic guitar and cello, Antonio Forcione’s group has been one of the classier practitioners of pastel-tinged, Metheny-esque improv. As ever, a little patience is required in the opening sequences: Forcione is a virtuoso who likes to indulge in extended bouts of throat-clearing before he launches into the thick of things. But by the time the spry ethnic themes of African Dawn and Sahara Rain heave into view, the musicians have raised the temperature by several notches. Tarantella is a forceful workout as you’ll hear from any heavyweight jazz-rockers.
