“Joy” includes 12 previously unreleased pieces recorded in August 2006 (10 hours a day, for 5 days) after the end of a long and intense tour in which Giovanni Allevi presented “No Concept”, his previous work, travelling around the world including Italy, the USA (where he played several times at the Blue Note in New York), Northern Europe, China and Hong Kong, earning an extraordinary response from the public.
GIOVANNI ALLEVI TALKS ABOUT “JOY”
“I am seeing the city through this strange window. I have never been inside an ambulance before. A Red Cross volunteer holds my hand on my shoulder and says that I have to keep calm because we are not far from the hospital.
Perhaps it came about because there was too much joy, the great emotion or accumulated tension, so that today – coming back from the tour in China – I started falling apart on the pavement in front of my home.
They are saying it could be a panic attack, or a heart condition, and to my fearful brain it seems possible I won’t make it through the next 10 minutes.
I reflect on how beautiful the sky is, the traffic, daily life or just being alive.
All those smiles I haven’t yet given, all the emotions I haven’t yet experienced, how many times I have darkened my dreams with the ghosts of fear…
If I should get out of here alive, I will sing with music about the joy of living every moment, whether beautiful or ugly, whatever situation I am in. JOY”
