Cosa sto ascoltando: compilations "The NightFly"

Nick The NightFly ha introdotto e conduce da più di 16 anni Monte Carlo Nights il primo programma radiofonico di nuove musiche e tendenze, la notte in Italia, che ha dato origine ad una fortunatissima serie di compilation, cui abbiamo dedicato un precedente articolo.

Dal suo nome trae origine una ulteriore serie di compilation, intitolata The NightFly, ovviamente strettamente imparentata con la precedente: musica di qualità, che spazia dal Jazz alla World Music, dal Brasil all’Acid Jazz alle musiche di frontiera, con i protagonisti della musica Chill Out Lounge e Nu Jazz, e via etichettando.

La formula è la solita: musica eccellente, musicisti di gusto raffinato anche se a volte poco noti o sconosciuti, atmosfere rilassate, niente hit inflazionati, se mai qualche cover molto particolare. Ad ascoltare tutti i pezzi uno dopo l'altro, a volte prevale un senso di assuefazione, ma presi uno per uno, è forse il meglio che la musica popolare dell'ultimo decennio ha prodotto.

Questo è l'elenco della serie completa, alla data.
