Incontre is the first recording by Massimo Biolcati in about a decade explodes in the visceral growling and rumbling of his magnificent contrabass. His fierce pizzicato attack delivers all the rhythmic energy you could possibly extract from the bass violin and with his ability to delve deep into a vibrant palette of harmonic colours Mr Biolcati makes a wonderful musical statement throughout this wonderful repertoire and that too, while playing superbly on one of the most diabolically difficult instruments to really master.
“Incontre offers Biolcati’s originals and heavy-hitting composers from Chaplin, Monk to Mingus, to modern composers like Dave Holland. What each tune offers are a freshness provided by Biolcati’s pen. His arranging ideas are inventive and thought-provoking. Whether he is approaching his originals, taking on pop classics, or luminary jazz tunes, it’s in the way Biolcati approaches their essence that makes Incontre so indelible. Backed by a group of apt players, each performance is original and memorable.”
