F.Poggi & Chicken Mambo – ‘Live in Texas’ is the new amazing, moving and intense CD by Fabrizio Poggi & Chicken Mambo. Accompanying Fabrizio and his band on the project are a number of great musicians: Flaco Jimenez, Marcia Ball, Floyd Domino, Ponty Bone, Debbi Walton, Tommy Elskes, Donnie Priceand many other heroes and friends. Enclosed in the package is also the movie COLUMBLUES DAYS by Francesco Paolo Paladino. Although Fabrizio did not start his tour in the best physical condition, he displayed such a force, when playing for hours on end, that could have struck down a bull. An impeccable, touching and original way to play music that came across lively and spontaneous. You can call it a sort of miracle. Concerts, meetings, the free and spontaneous sessions; the CD and the film capture all of this. But it is also a kind of ritual, as Fabrizio explains in the movie, in which the musicians of the present meet the spirits of the past that still linger in the Texan spaces. A crossover of the real and the spiritual, a music of the soul. And in fact, it is an album and a movie about the soul of the blues, which has no nationality. Italians musicians play on stage along with American ones as Fabrizio did many times in his long career. And this is taken for granted. Because music is the power of all and knows no borders.

These are the words that Francesco Paolo Paladino wrote about his movie: “The film “assumes” what is not obvious, and thus – at least in its intention – creates an even greater surprise for the listener/spectator. It is not meant to be a lecture on the art (though sublime) of Poggi. That is also taken for granted, as if saying, “You do not know about it? Deal with it!”. Because in a world of more or less subliminal advertising messages, hidden or indirect, this film refuses an approach like that. This is NOT marketing material for Poggi’s music, but the music of Poggi. Not a commercial but a chronicle. And if those who listen also have ears, as I hope, they cannot but appreciate and go listen to the record production of Fabrizio. This film has the presumption of being an art film, which assumes the artistic grandeur of the main character, Fabrizio Poggi, and tries to analyze the spirits that accompany it, the poetry of the gestures of the real America – the one whose heart is still beating, as in the opening scenes of part I and II. The narrative choice was to focus on a “journey”, that actually made by Fabrizio and Chicken Mambo in a dreamlike Texas, in search of the protagonists’ dreams. Their spirit is coagulated to the blues, a blues that sounds true behind every breath of the film. And two lovers, the ones you see in the opening scene and in the presentation, join the music at the end of its cycle of evolution in the closing scene of the film and dance in total freedom – the one that I tried to capture and offer you in “COLUMBLUES DAYS”.

Recorded live at the UPTOWN THEATER in Marble Falls, TEXAS on September 11, 2010
