“On a Cloud” is a project born during a passionate music and vocal research focused on the figure of Jeanne Lee, wonderful singer of the avant-garde Jazz. She has been a sensitive and courageous artist, pioneer of an innovative way of singing in Jazz music starting from the Sixties. The project is a homage to this extraordinary musician and poetess.
The repertoire draws on standards, improvisations and original compositions inspired by Jeanne Lee’s world of sounds. The choice of the duo, voice and classical guitar, is an ideal dimension to re-elaborate the poetic, refined and intimate atmosphere of Lee’s music.
The ensemble, formed by the singer Diana Torti and the guitarist and composer Sabino de Bari, has over time developed and matured a consolidated artistic alchemy. In their music, both improvisation and composition are experienced as an expressive possibility out of any stylistic connotation. Timbres, words, noises and breaths merge, chase or dance together freely, to evoke suggestions and sound images.
Diana Torti – voice
