ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Felix’ Jump, is the brand new cd by Panic Trio, led by eclectic guitarist Walter Beltrami alongside with Danilo Gallo (electric bass) and Stefano Tamborrino (drums). The new CD, recorded and mixed at Estudio Uno in Madrid, will be released on April 15th 2016 by Italian independent label Auand Records.
After the dizziness of Paroxysmal Postural Vertigo (Auand) – alongside with Jim Black, Stomu Takeishi, Francesco Bearzatti and Vincent Courtois, the Italian jazz guitarist goes back to one of his favourite combo, the Trio, to record new concept album that confirms his talent as a storyteller. Felix’ Jump was freely inspired by Felix Baumgartner’s freefall jump from Space, at 41.000 meters altitude. In this jump, Walter saw the same “jump into the Unknown” that was the axis and beating heart of Paroxysmal Postural Vertigo and a metaphor of all music and art which goes for unpredictability, risk and surprise. The very same motto of Auand records: “energy, risk, conviction and the unexpected”.
That’s why Walter Beltrami decided to bring his Panic Trio to Madrid, where he now lives. Three years of meetings between Italy and Spain to produce a CD with seven original tracks and a re-arrangement (taken from Stravinsky’s Rite of Springs, one of Beltrami’s all-time favourites). The cover photo is a dreamy shot by Sara Cornali portraying a toy-astronaut in freefall towards a blurry earth surface, the unrecognizable colourful guitarist’s pedalboard. Executive producer Marco Valente for Auand Records in co-production with Onwire Music.

What the Press says about Walter's music:

ALLABOUTJAZZ
John Kelman, Jerry D'Souza
"A unique sense of melody" "a guitarist well worth watching [...]"
"Electrifying melodic and rhythmic motifs and incendiary guitar lines. Beltrami showcases his flair as a composer and his artistry as a guitarist in expansive and intricate terms manifested in music that packs a soul-stirring wallop."

JAZZ MAGAZINE FRANCE
Thierry Quénum
"An outstanding talent who can't let you indifferent!"
"Original, big sound and energy close to rock combining a great melodic delicacy"

THE NEW YORK CITY JAZZ RECORD
John Sharpe
"Tight, fast-changing, sometimes portentous, sometimes catchy. With his imaginative use of rock idioms, Beltrami has created an exciting set packed with visceral thrills."

MUSICA JAZZ
"A masterpiece! A work of absolute quality by one of the most interesting voice of Contemporary Guitar."

CUADERNOS DE JAZZ
Yahvé M. de la Cavada
"A brave and exciting guitarist" "the best marriage between jazz and rock I listened to since a very long time."

AUDIO REVIEW
Marco Crisostomi
"The best Italian cd of the year! The future? It's already here!"

JAZZMAN
Pascal Rozat
"Authentic musical poetry!"

DOWNTOWN MUSIC GALLERY
Bruce Lee Gallanter
"Each song has a riff to remember with a great groove as well. It is those swell rock/jazz melodies that stand out throughout. This music seems to have more in common with contemporary rock music (like Radiohead or Wilco) than with most jazz although the solos are in between any established genres."
