Debutto con l'album "Aria" EMI che ottiene il premio della critica discografica come miglior album dell'anno e che si avvale della preziosa collaborazione di Jean Luc Ponty, violinista francese famoso per aver introdotto nel jazz l'uso del violino elettrico.
La registrazione di Aria mi porta a Parigi e Nizza , quindi col mio primo contratto EMI Harvest mi sposto a Roma che diviene la piattaforma base da cui decolleranno i miei viaggi futuri. Il singolo "Vorrei incontrarti" tratto da questo album finisce per diventare una delle canzoni simbolo della generazione ribelle della contestazione post ' Nel 73 registro interamente a Londra il secondo album "Come un vecchio incensiere all'alba di un villaggio deserto" EMI con musicisti del Progressive britannico.
Il mio terzo album "Alan Sorrenti" EMI contiene "Dicitencello Vuje", un classico napoletano interpretato e realizzato in chiave psichedelica, che entra a far parte della Top 10 Italia. No, I can't. I don't know why particularly this music so impresses me, it's like soup, the whole can taste so well, while also the ingredients are known, but why specifically the combination tastes so well is difficult to say.
Does it matter? Well ok, one hint then; is it weird that - while the piano play on La Mia Mente is so intense - you seriously consider how to get INTO the left loudspeaker? And no, I don't use nothing good music can open up your mind anyway. NotAProghead's remark on wives, girlfriends etc. The music already baffled me in that it did so much to me, but that it also could invoke this kind of requests amazed me even more, no reward apparently unless you seriously give it a chance.
Masterpiece, five stars. Review by apps79 Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator. Despite the upgraded line-up the music remains in the same vein of Sorrenti's debut as well as the album's structure, including the sidelong eponymous min.
There are though plenty of piano exercises, smooth flute parts and haunting violin strings, that ensure to create a very cosmic and almost frightening atmosphere. The sidelong suite of the second side finds Sorrenti at his more extreme phase. This is not actually what I would call music, this is a completely dissonant and cacophonous collection of sparse sounds, full of Sorrenti's wordless vocals and cries along with dominating percussion and acoustic guitars, while the few singing parts have a cosmic theatrical approach with floating synths, pianos and flutes, which add a sporadic orientation to the composition, that as a whole is a rather painful experience.
From this point pn Sorrenti's career took slowly a more commercial approach from album to album, resulting to a succesful career until the mid's, even including a performance at the Eurovision song contest. I was talking to Pierre our local duck in the RPI den about this record, and rightly so, he said that one should look at Alan Sorrenti not as a singer, but as a bird.
This guy probably has one of the most charismatic and unique voices ever to ornament the face of any rock music. Going through these different "voices" within his voice is like looking for individual blades of grass on a green meadow. There seems to be an endless amount of them. First of all he has a gentle touch, when the song craves for it and he can sound almost female-like with gentle whispers and sensuousness oozing out of the phrasings.
That being said, there is definite signs of Van Der Graff Generator in this music. Sorrenti does frequently use that theatrical way of wrapping his lips around the words, and the music accompanying this spectacle could also make your mind wander towards the organ lead cacophony of VDGG, but here the similarities end. Comprised by a hefty dosage of acoustic guitars with a medieval flavour - almost resembling the old jester with his lute - jumping around in sheer exuberance and carelessness, Aria is heavily rooted in the Italian folk music tradition.
Adding to this theory of mine, is the way that French violinist Jean-Luc Ponty plays his instrument on here. Getting back to Monsieur Sorrenti and his tender vocal phrasings, people need to understand just how much out of the ordinary this album must have sounded like back then.
Italy is first and foremost known for its impeccable and refined usage of melodies. Be that in their traditional folk music or inside the world of classical composers - this has always been a defining trademark of theirs. This is a highly melodic nation of people, and to have a young guy with obvious vocal talents come out of the blue with clear connotations to the wild and blurry avant guardistic and abrasive sides of the human voice, obliterating and alternating the well-known acoustical guitar ballads and traditional folk laden musics all at once with the flick of a switch - and with a voice of a thousand eagles I for one would love to have experienced this first hand in down town Naples with a bottle of red wine by my side.
It's enjoyable, when you want to just relax and listen "easy" music. But that's not enough for this album to get high rating. I wonder how high ratings it gets on "normal" music servers. That doesn't matter much. Actually, it's doesn't matter at all here. Before taking the path of commercial success with songs like "Figli delle stelle" and "Tu sei l'unica donna per me", Alan Sorrenti wrote prog music.
Have you ever listed to "Figli delle stelle"? If you are not italian, as I am, I think not. Well, I don't want to judge but So imagine my surprise when I learned that Alan Sorrenti had to his credit a couple of prog album! And now imagine my surprise when hearing "Aria" the first time I realized it was a very good album. And when, at the second hearing, I thought that the title track suite was a masterpiece.
