For this second record, Un Poco Loco seize a mythical monument of American culture in order to elaborate a refined work of sound and dramaturgy, mixing the traditional vocabulary of jazz with the musical language of contemporary musicians. For this new record “Feelin’ Pretty”, the trio decided to tackle Leonard Bernstein’s unforgettable music of West Side Story. The standards are first stripped naked and then dressed up in new fancy clothes. An unexpected interpretation of extrapolations, glimpses and playing hide-and-seek with the original score of this great musical, through personal arrangements and original compositions. Tony, Maria, the Jets and the Sharks are gently hustled, and the magnificent score becomes a preamble to the improvisers’s wildest games.
