“I’m a music lover, answers the singer/pianist (also a producer/arranger) when asked about his style which mixes jazz, soul, pop, classical and Italian pop music. I don’t feel like giving up any genre I’ve loved since I started music. This album is mixture and I’m like the sum of my passions.” “Happy Mistake” won’t surprise whoever discovered the transalpine musician over the least few years. These news songs are like a follow-up to the ones that created a buzz when “Reality And Fantasy” was released (the album sold more than 100 000 copies worldwide). Raphael Gualazzi’s natural inclination for eclectics and melody can be found in these immediate and catchy tunes.
But this time, everything is even more perfect. Fuelled by tours and concerts, Raphael Gualazzi’s songwriting is more refined. As opposed to a musical environment that lacks substance, the young artist in his early thirties seems to write catchy tunes, infused with his piano playing and his slightly raspy voice, without any effort. Those who remember the golden age of Italian vocal pop will unmistakably think of Lucio Dalla, Paolo Conte and Adriano Celentano. Except that Raphael Gualazzi, a tradition lover, is also very much of his time. If “Happy Mistake” impresses with its immediacy, it’s because it’s been conceived mostly on the spot. While rehearsing or soundchecking, the musician often toys with a few notes before writing them on paper, later. During the recording of the album, Raphael Gualazzi shared the microphone with the French singer Camille on “L’amie d’un italien” (An Italian’s Friend), a cabaret-like track subtly arranged by Vince Mendoza. On the album, a brass section sticks to Raphael Gualazzi’s percussive rhythms, inspired by his love for swing and groove. Trumpet player Fabrizio Boss guests on many tracks. Among them are the very New-Orleans “Un Mare In Luce” and “Mambo Soul”. He describes it as being “piano driven music coloured with brass and percussion, designed to make people dance”. On the album, Raphael Gualazzi also celebrates Verdi’s opera music while covering “Questa O Quella Per Me Pari Non Sono”, from “Rigoletto”. But what does link all these musical snapshots together? The freshness and enthusiasm of Raphael Gualazzi which give character to such jewels as the irresistible “Don’t Call My Name”, the passionate “I’m Tired”, the sophisticated “Baby What’s Strong” and the groovy “Seventy Days Of Love”. All these songs are stamped with his soulful voice, in English and Italian. “Most of my choices are driven by tempo, he adds. I think I could sing these songs in other languages and it wouldn't spoil their musicality.”
The last two years have been crazy for Raphael Gualazzi but the musician still knows what is real. He learns from every experience. He came to the festival of San Remo (an Italian institution) in 2011 and won four prizes. He’ll be back there next year, eager to pay tribute to an Italian tradition for popular songs, with two tracks from “Happy Mistake”. While participating in the great Eurovision song contest (he ran for Italy and ended up second), his goal was to play a different kind of music: his. “In the middle of this unlikely concert, it didn’t hurt to play the young generation a jazz tune and show them than music can be made by real people and not only by machines” he says. About the Eurovision show, Raphael Gualazzi adds: “I’ve given interviews where I mentioned my influences, Otis Spann, Muddy Waters and Art Tatum”.
People have discovered his way of making music, without computers but with real melodies played by real people. With “Happy Mistake”, the very much talented and quite unique Raphael Gualazzi is about to write a new chapter of his own book. Be ready to read it.
