Variations is the captivating third album from one of Australia’s most inventive, contemporary music ensembles, Misinterprotato. 

 Variations encapsulates their vision, virtuosity and passion to discover new ground which sets this trio apart. The group’s sound is driven by pianist Sean Foran, teamed with John Parker’s expansive dynamic and timbral range on percussion and Patrick Marchisella’s visceral touch on the double bass. In a rhythm section far beyond just an accompaniment, Marchisella’s bass playing exudes emotion sweetly and succinctly, and Parker’s drumming is so effective as to be interpreted as counter-melodies and harmony to Foran’s beautiful flow on the keys. Vastly dynamic the trio stretches from subtle ballads ‘please’ and ‘ascent’ to dense ferocious tracks ‘chunk’, ‘the unknown’ and ‘Variations on a bad day’.

“We try to expand what people think could be jazz,” Foran describes the essence of Misinterprotato’s music. You can feel that sentiment transcend each lyrical phrase and seductive rhythm both live on stage and in their recorded work.  

 With two acclaimed albums already released, “now for the free” and “In is In” the trio have gathered acclaim around Australia, performing at the Wangaratta Jazz festival, Woodford Folk Festival and Melbourne International jazz Festival among others. The trio have also appeared at the Calgary International Jazz Festival Canada and Kutchan Jazz Festival Japan.

 In the newest addition to the band’s current catalogue of two investigative and intriguing albums, the trio’s third full length album, Variations, finds a confident group of musicians who are truly flourishing. The relaxed structure of Foran and Parker’s intimate songwriting decorated by the group’s spontaneous musicality create some very special moments on this captivating record. Vastly dynamic the trio stretches from subtle ballads ‘please’ and ‘ascent’ to dense ferocious tracks ‘chunk’, ‘the unknown’ and ‘Variations on a bad day’.

 


 

“THIS release from the Brisbane piano trio with an intriguing name sounds even more classically influenced than their 2005 album In is In. Pianist and leader Sean Foran has composed most of the pieces, with another three by drummer John Parker. Island of the Sun establishes a bossa beat before the piano begins a running fugue-like theme. This builds to a crashing crescendo of a solo followed by Pat Marchisella's fast-moving bass interlude, preceding a return to theme. Several guest artists make an appearance: violin, viola, alto sax, plus Peter Knight's moodily expressive trumpet on an introspective ballad, Ascent. A more energetic approach is used on Chunk, a jagged, polyrhythmic exposition with free jazz-style clashes between the instruments. The final track, Labyrinth, is a completely improvised soundscape using prepared piano, sliding bass harmonics and a busy but not overpowering drum kit. A fine example of contemporary music in various tempos, incorporating a range of moods and drawing extensively on diverse classical references fused with 21st-century jazz ideas.”

 “Brisbane-based jazz band Misinterprotato is making works of art with it’s recently released album Variations. From minimalism to European jazz, art rock and contemporary classical, Misinterprotato combines sounds that create music that is intense, moody, spacious and full of explosive energy. It’s unique talent rolls effortlessly off the various instruments to create sounds that are breathtakingly stunning.”
