La Macina e GangThe history of La Macina – the folk music collective from Marche active since 1968 – coincides with the raspy and powerful voice of Gastone Pietrucci, the “aedo” that animates the activity of the band since the very beginning. For several years Pietrucci, who has always managed to bring together the charm of the musical heritage of oral tradition in a thorough and convincing revival, embarked on a road just crossed in Italy from other projects that move in the field of popular music. The beginning of this process corresponds with “Nel tempo e oltre cantando”, the disc of 2004 in which La Macina and the Gang – band from Marche inspired by punk and folk rock founded in the late seventies – reproduce, with new arrangements, the tracks of both bands. The result is interesting because the tracks of the popular repertoire Marches take on a new look and in some cases, even an unexpected political profile. Pietrucci returns this year with a “trad-jazz” project. The title is “Ramo de fiori” and was produced in collaboration with the Samuele Garofoli Quartet, a jazz ensemble consisting of guitar, drums, bass and trumpet. The ten popular songs take on, in this way, a new profile and the convergence between the extemporaneous elements of oral tradition music and codes of jazz improvisation opens an unexpected scenario, characterized by structural affinity that is worth investigating even from a musicology point view.
