Reviews Alipio C Neto

“Neto, sax soprano e tenore, rilegge magnificamente, con delicatezza, la storia del jazz post-free.”

Mario Gamba, il manifesto


“He’s a hugely intelligent, literate man and his music has a surpassing
thoughtfulness underneath the sometimes jagged and anguished exterior. A Brazilian from Pernambuco, the feel of the arid sertão is a constant presence in these windswept compositions.”

Brian Morton, The Wire


“When Neto finally solos, he’s a radical melodist, creating a continuum of abrasions and graces, building from great low blasts through sudden upper-range skitters and hollow-voiced mid-range lines. Like the first, each of Neto’s compositions contain multiple themes that are welded together by the ensemble, often creating a feeling suspended between through-composition and collective improvisation. Clearly every player here is engaged by Neto’s intensity of purpose.”

Stuart Broomer, Signal to Noise


“La présence et la sonorité du saxophoniste Alípio C Neto évoque avec une certaine coïncidence au soprano et au ténor, le légendaire Charles Brackeen, compagnon de Dennis Gonzalez dans les années ’80 et aujourd’hui disparu. Le même Charles Brackeen avait enregistré le fabuleux disque «Dance» (Paul Motian Trio ECM 1977 avec le bassiste David Izenson).”
