Album Review

Michel Camilo is a very powerful Latin jazz pianist who is quite capable of playing several rhythms at once. He emulates an orchestra even when playing solo, so it is not surprising that this outing with 21 other musicians in an impressive all-star band is intense and passionate. Camilo performs ten of his originals on this date including the blues "One More Once," an atmospheric "Dreamlight," "Caribe," "Just Kidding" and his "hit" "Why Not." Among the notables heard from are tenor saxophonist Ralph Bowen, altoist Paquito d'Rivera, Chris Hunter on soprano and alto, and trumpeter Michael Mossman, but Camilo is the main star throughout. The catchy rhythms make the music accessible but the pianist never coasts or takes it easy, constantly challenging himself. Recommended.

FABULOSO!!

This is an amazing album. Michel Camilo is a phenomenal pianist as is, and now he has a fantasic big band to back him up. If you are any kind of jazz or latin fan...this album is a necessity!!

Incredible

Passionate, and musical genius.

"One More Once" Delivers

When I buy albums, there are usually only about 2-3 tracks I can consistently listen to. With Camilo's album, I can listen to it all the way through. Every track is captivating and incredibly accessible jazz and the band is stacked with all-star talent, yet upon further listening, Camilo's prowess as both a composer and a performer is enough to keep me coming back for more. In my opinion, saying this album is incredible would definitely be an understatement.
