What happens when five kindred musicians enter a Brooklyn studio armed with nothing but their instruments, some original pieces and a willingness to see and hear what happens? That’s the operating principle behind “Leave It Blank For Now,” a collective of improvisers who share a history of study in Boston, now rooted in the vibrant New York City scene and involved in enough bands and projects to make your head spin. The album starts out with two of saxophonist Daniele Germani’s pieces evoking the beauty and power of nature both real (“On The Edge Of Mount Kosciuszko”) and imagined (“Scylla and Charybdis”). Next is “The Brosh Anthem,” an homage to camaraderie and friendship penned by virtuoso pianist Leo Genovese. The penultimate tune, by trumpeter Cosimo Boni, is an unpredictable and deceiving ballad about false niceness called “The Pretty Beast.” The album closes with “Newark,” bassist Francesco Marcocci’s tribute to legendary jazz elder statesman Wayne Shorter. Drummer Jongkuk Kim rounds out the quintet, with all five members exhibiting a trust and pure love of music that allows them to view the wide-open unknown for what it is, a place of boundless discovery and possibility.

Los Autonautas New York, New York

The music recorded for this occasion comprises tunes by all members of the band, reinforcing one of the first elements we come across while listening, ritual celebration. There is not too much room for fragmented multiculturalism, on the contrary a strong sense of unity arises. Unity in rhythm and intensity, sound exploration and the ongoing visceral dance of this music. ... more
