WotW_bandcamp_CD_template.png

  Luciana Morelli has integrated with mastery and versatility her facets of performer, composer and arranger in her eclectic new album "Words of the wind", in which she presents music for different ensembles, from the traditional jazz quintet to the rather unusual combination - in the field of jazz - of voice and string quartet or viola and vocal ensemble. The words of the female poets Emily Brontë, Alejandra Pizarnik, Anne Carson and Robin Myers take flight and find their musical expression in the voice and compositions of the singer.
Luciana blends storytelling, poetry, and harmonies into a colourful palette of jazz and her native Argentinian roots, expressing a poetics that is personal and distinctive.
The album releases on June 7th 2024 on Habitable Records. For the occasion, Luciana plans a tour to present the album specially re-arranged for her quintet "Luciana Morelli group" with Philipp Hillebrand (clarinets), Mauricio Silva Orendain (piano), Snejana Prodanova (double bass) and Paulo Almeida (drums).

"This album emerged from an interest in exploring different compositional techniques, in dialogue with poems by Emily Brontë (England, 1818-1848), Alejandra Pizarnik (Argentina, 1936-1972), Anne Carson (Canada, 1950) and Robin Myers (USA, 1987). 

  Nature, love, death, loneliness, identity, madness, desire, pain, loss, longing, family, language, memory. Each poem revealed a universe of its own, inviting me to explore diverse timbres and instrumentation.

  The experience was deeply enriching and resulted in this eclectic work, which I am pleased to share, in the hope that it will stimulate the imagination of the listener".
