Reseña de álbum

For his second recording as a leader, acoustic and electric guitarist Sandro Albert has chosen a colorful palate of contemporary jazz, Latin sounds, and heady polyrhythms to make some wonderfully rich and original music. He is very much the leader on these sessions, using patient constructs instead of burning pyrotechnics to get his point of view across. He has also chosen some extremely talented running mates, including the veteran percussionist Airto Moreira, keyboardist Jimmy Haslip, the brilliant pianist Edsel Gomez, and especially the exceptional but unsung flutist and saxophonist Katisse Buckingham. It is the partnership between Albert and Buckingham that stirs this music into a tropical fruit blended and tastefully whole. All of the music is written by Albert, starting with a bright happy tune "Message Across the Sea" moving in modes from 7/8 to 6/8 to 5/4, with Buckingham's flute and Albert's guitar squarely focused on a tricky multi-melody. Michael Brecker's unmistakable N.Y.C. neo-bop sound is portrayed by tenor saxophonist Buckingham during the title track with tick-tock drumming again in 6/8, and the spirit song feel that is a signature in contemporary jazz of the 2000s. A deliberate tick-funk "If We Could Dance Now" solidifies Albert's influences via the wordless vocals of Mark Ledford, electric guitar solo by Robben Ford, and wonderful modern contemporary piano chords from Gomez. Albert is also fond of electric guitarist Pat Metheny's singing sound as on "Rafaela's Dream" in a heavier piano mode from Gomez with vocals from Jean Baylor. If you enjoy jazz flute, you'll be pleased with Buckingham throughout this recording. Moreira or Luis Conte up the Latin ante on percussion, and unheralded drummer Jimmy Branly really holds up his end expertly. The long neglected superstar of the jazz accordion Frank Marocco shows up during the title cut, and the careful, unhurried "We Are Alive" where Gomez fully stretches out and proves his mettle over a march drum beat by Branly and some inquisitive synthesizer musings from Haslip. Brazilian music creeps in here and there, as does organ fired soul-jazz. But they are not played in the traditional manner, and actually extend beyond simple samba or chitlin circuit groove. There's a lot to like on this excellent CD with the combination of extraordinary musicians and the accessible guitar playing of Albert. Advice should be given to not pass this by as an obscurity or novelty item — it's a real world thing. ~ Michael G. Nastos, Rovi
