Guano Padano
Back And Forth
Ponderosa, 2021

December, 25 2021

Back And Forth is the title of the new Guano Padano EP. 

This extraordinary trio is formed by Alessandro “Asso” Stefana on stringed instruments (guitars, lap steel, mandolin, banjo etc.), Danilo Gallo on bass and double bass, and Zeno De Rossi on drums. They are one of the most interesting, fun and meaningful groups to have emerged from the Italian music scene.

Their music is a brilliant mix of American, roots, Morricone, jazz, improvisation, blues, melody and irreverence, and each of the trio’s albums is a journey of musical tales of great beauty and (apparent) simplicity.

Back And Forth is the title of the new EP: four tracks with a western flavor embellished by the presence of Bill Frisell on guitar in “Prairie Avenue Cowboy” (a particularly persuasive and evocative piece by Paul Motian) and Sam Amidon on vocals and banjo throughout the album.

Back And Forth seems to prefer a more melancholy approach than the previous records of Guano Padano, with songs generally detached on moderate tempos and dreamy atmospheres. An example would be the intriguing arrangement of “Short Life”. There is no lack of spaghetti-western-surf moments such as the final medley “An Eye Towards Tokyo / Jack Frost / Sugar Baby”) but to singularly define the sound worlds of this trio is particularly difficult. Their music, well cared for, is a real listening experience that I always enjoy with pleasure. Don’t miss this EP!
