Reseña de álbum

Pianist and composer Michael Weiss believes that the future of jazz lies in a closer integration of composition and improvisation. He puts that hypothesis to work on his fourth album as a leader, on which he takes a high-powered septet through an all-original program of nine compositions, all of them relatively straightforward in general structure and tone, but harmonically forward-looking at the same time. This kind of balance between innovation and accessibility is unusual in jazz, and it makes for an extremely interesting and enjoyable listening experience. The album's centerpiece is a tune titled "El Camino," which combines a sweetly melodic theme, lush written parts for the front line of alto sax, trumpet, and trombone, and gentle but complex Latin percussion to create a performance that is as dense and beautiful as a jungle. Other highlights include the more harmonically challenging "Orient Express" and the swinging, bluesy "Cheshire Cat," which also features more of Weiss' exceptional horn arrangements. It is hard to imagine any serious jazz lover not being captivated by this album. Highly recommended.
