Press Release

L’ALBUM DI DEBUTTO DI FRANCESCA GAZA SU TUTTE LE PIATTAFORME STREAMING E IN DIGITAL DOWNLOAD
DAL 3 APRILE IN ANTEPRIMA LIVE A MILANO, BOLZANO, SIENA E LIVORNO

 
Dal 5 aprile è disponibile in digital download, su tutte le piattaforme e nei negozi tradizionali Lilac For People (Auand Records/ Pirames International Distribution), l’album di debutto di Francesca Gaza.
Anticipato dai singoli Lilac e Almond Tree, Lilac For People, scritto e arrangiato da Francesca Gaza per il suo ottetto, è un album in cui la poeticità dei testi, unita all’arrangiamento ricco di dettagli riesce a creare un mondo sonoro tutto da scoprire. Le composizioni rappresentano densi viaggi sonori nei quali il racconto della voce di Francesca è sostenuta da un organico multiforme e cangiante, dove la natura acustica degli ottoni, delle pelli e delle corde viene sottilmente manipolata dall’uso dell’elettronica.
L’ascoltatore viene portato per mano dentro ad un giardino immaginario, dove quasi per magia prendono vita i racconti del disco, stagione dopo stagione, brano dopo brano.

Paolo Fresu:
Il nuovo lavoro di Francesca Gaza e di Lilac for People è una vera poesia e si porta appresso un suono originale frutto di un lavoro di gruppo. 
È quasi un collettivo il suo. Formazione ampia che costruisce musica attraverso un respiro condiviso capace di intrecciare suoni acustici ed elettrici con maestria e coraggio.
Tra ‘Strange Poet’ e ‘I Get Along Without You Very Well’ c’è un mondo di passione e di emozione che fa di Lilac for People uno dei lavori discografici più belli di questo momento. Il contest JazzAlguer Mediterrani è fiero di avere contribuito alla luce di un progetto straordinario.

Lilac for People è realizzato da Francesca Gaza con il suo moderno ensemble che affonda le radici nel jazz, ma si nutre delle suggestioni del pop e dell’elettronica per creare un chamber jazz pop originale e sognante. Completano la formazione, insieme a Francesca, Jacopo Fagioli (tromba, flicorno), Francesco Panconesi (sax tenore), Federico D’Angelo (sax baritono, clarinetto basso), Lorenzo Pellegrini (chitarra), Luca Sguera (tastiere, elettronica), Alessandro Mazzieri (basso, elettronica) e Mattia Galeotti (batteria).
Con la produzione artistica di Andrea Lombardini, Lilac For People è stato registrato e masterizzato da Federico Pelle e Simone Cattelan al Basement Studio Vicenza e mixato da Antonio Nappo allo Q Recording Studio di Milano.

FRANCESCA GAZA
out on April 5th
LILAC FOR PEOPLE
Debut Album of Singer and Composer Francesca Gaza
 
On the 5th of April Lilac for People, the debut album of singer and composer Francesca Gaza will be available in all official stores and on all digital platforms (Auand Records/ Pirames International Distribution).
Lilac for People was anticipated by two singles “Lilac” and “Almond Tree” and was composed and arranged by Francesca Gaza for her octet, a modern ensemble jazz-rooted but nourished by pop and electronic influences in creating an original and dreamlike chamber jazz-pop.

In her debut album, the 23-year-old singer-composer shows poetic ability in lyric writing as well as a very personal arrangement style, rich in details and with a clear artistic direction leading into her own world of sound to be discovered.

The compositions embody a rich sonorous journey in which Francesca's vocal narration is supported by a versatile and enigmatic group, where the acoustic nature of the brasswinds, the string sounds and the drum skins are subtly manipulated by using electronics. The muses that inspired this concept are female figures with a proud crossover character, who escape categorization but embrace an all-round contemporary understanding, both respecting the past and exploring enthusiastically the new: Björk, Becca Stevens, Laura Mvula, Kimbra, Maria Schneider.

The listener is taken by the hand and led into an imaginary garden where, through the music, he can experience the flow of time and its impact on nature, song after song, season after season.


Paolo Fresu
Francesca Gaza’s new work ‘Lilac for People’ is true poetry and carries with it an original
sound as a result of the work she has been doing with her ensemble.

It is almost a collective. A wide ensemble that crafts music through a shared breath, capable of seamlessly combining acoustic and electric sounds with boldness and an expert hand. Between ‘Strange Poet‘ and ‘I Get Along Without You Very Well‘ there is a world of passion and feeling that makes Lilac for People one of the most beautiful albums of this time.

The JazzAlguer Mediterrani Contest is proud to have contributed to the emergence of such an extraordinary project.


Francesca Gaza's Lilac for People is a modern ensemble consisting of eight elements, jazz-rooted but nourished by pop and electronic influences in creating an original and dreamlike chamber jazz-pop. The line-up sees Francesca Gaza on vocals, composition and arrangement together with Jacopo Fagioli on trumpet and flügelhorn, Francesco Panconesi on Tenor Saxophone, Federico D'Angelo on Baritone Saxopohone and Bass Clarinet, Lorenzo Pellegrini on Guitar and Vocals, Luca Sguera on Fender Rhodes, Prophet and Electronics, Alessandro Mazzieri on bass and electronics and Mattia Galeotti on Drums. “Lilac for People” was produced by Andrea Lombardini, recorded and mastered by Federico Pelle and Simone Cattelan at Basement Studio Vicenza and mixed by Antonio Nappo at Q Recording Studio Milan.
