Zucchero & the Randy Jackson Band (album di Zucchero del 1985)

ZUCCHERO & THE RANDY JACKSON BAND è il secondo album di Adelmo Fornaciari, all’epoca poco noto, composto da 9 canzoni che abbracciano generi cari al musicista emiliano e che in seguito lo porteranno ad un successo enorme.

La prima traccia è la celebre Donne, un ritratto di metafore sull’universo femminile reduce da Sanremo con esito deludente ma che vincerà la prova del tempo. Stasera se un uomo è uno splendido brano intimista su testo del grande Mogol. Ti farò morire mette brio ad una storia di sesso sfrenato. Poi con un arrangiamento leggero si affronta l’amarezza per una relazione sfumata, eloquente il titolo del pezzo Per una delusione in più. Ciò porta ad un’altra canzone sul desidero femminile: Tu mi piaci come questa birra, una malcelata metafora evidenziata dalla frase “ti avrò con le mani stringendo i tuoi capelli”. Punta invece alla dolcezza la bellissima Un piccolo aiuto. Stavolta Zucchero si rivolge a LEI con parole tenere: “dormi pure se ti va e riposati quanto vuoi ho bisogno di serenità”. Parte quindi la galoppata finale con Jimmy Jimmy: una prova melodica in bella evidenza di Adelmo. Oh Stevie parrebbe alludere a Wonder ma non ci sono ragguagli in merito: forse si tratta di un bella dedica ad un amico che ” canta come un DIO”. Si chiude con Quasi quasi: una metafora su come si possa risalire dopo aver toccato il fondo.

Ottimo disco nonostante il suo insuccesso, prodotto da Corrado Rustici, che negli Stati Uniti conobbe Randy Jackson a sua volta presentato a Zucchero, ed accompagnato dal musicista e il suo gruppo per l’incisione dell’album. Il musicista statunitense, fratello del più celebre Michael, compare anche nella copertina con in braccio la neonata figlia di Zucchero, Irene.

Nobili le firme dei testi: 4 di Alberto Salerno e 5 di Mogol. Tuttavia queste eccellenti collaborazioni fruttarono un solo classico: Donne. Ma almeno altri 4 brani meritano di essere messi in evidenza: Un piccolo aiuto, Stasera se un uomo, Ti farò morire e Per una delusione in più.
