Conversations About Her recently highlighted “Heartwood,” from Bobby Bazini’s new album Pearl. “Drawing inspiration from the Canadian author Michael Christie’s book Green Wood, Bazini crafts ‘Heartwood’ around the intricate comparison between a tree’s growth rings and the evolution of family dynamics across generations. He reflects on his personal familial journey, pondering over the time required for past wounds to heal, old patterns to break, and the eventual embracing of one’s individual path. The song’s captivating groove is influenced by Jorge Ben’s ‘Todo Colorida.’ The song boasts of a riveting sax solo by Félix Petit, a unique and memorable feature within the album. This particular piece, Bazini believes, carries a tangible live energy that promises a magnetic presence during his performances.” Listen here.
