Product Description & Reviews
The music of Paolo Conte has captivated audiences in Italy and throughout Europe for nearly two decades. With a craggy-voiced style that evokes a world of hallucinations, failed love-affairs, and long, solitary nights in a darkened bar, Conte casts a curious spell in music that is at times languid and smoky, at times reminiscent of the nightclub bounce of Django Reinhardty and the Hot Five. Originally from Asti in Northern Italy, Conte is known as a poet and painter as well as a musician, and draws on cinema, literature, and ordinary life for the imagery in his songs. Boasting a career highlighted with multiple gold records abroad, this self-titled album marks his long-overdue recording debut in the U.S. Paolo Conte is a completely original talent, and his leathery, life-weary face on the cover is the first clue to the evocative music of this poet, painter, musician, and lawyer from Asti in northern Italy. Observations on the tide of human existence deftly rendered in vividly poetic lines that startle with their originality are highlighted in smoky vignettes of '40s jazz- and tango-inflected tunes, teetering between Cabaret, The Circus, and 42nd Street. Conte's unfiltered raspy voice is the perfect vehicle for his poignant view of the foibles of adult life mused from the corner barstool, admiring women whose "pungent smells [beckon] him like an old-fashioned grocery, its doors flung open to the spring outside." The music is a treat in itself, but the real gold is to be found in his lyrics, and luckily translations are in the liner notes. --Derek Rath
