Album Review

A very versatile player interested in combining folk music from other countries with jazz, David Amram has recorded surprisingly few records through the years as a leader. In fact, this excellent Flying Fish set was only his third album, and first since 1957. In 1977, several American musicians were able to travel to Cuba for a short visit, resulting in the lengthy "En Memoria de Chano Pozo," which matches Amram (on guitar, piano, flute, penny whistle, French horn, xylophone, and percussion) with an American rhythm section and two then-unknown Cubans: altoist Paquito D'Rivera and 20-year-old trumpeter Arturo Sandoval. Two other selections on the set mostly feature Americans (including trumpeter Thad Jones, baritonist Pepper Adams, and the tenor of Billy Mitchell) with some expatriate Cubans (including Candido and Ray Mantilla among the percussionists), while "Broadway Reunion" has Amram on flute sitting in with a visiting Cuban band on the streets of New York. This little-known release crosses several musical boundaries and is well-worth searching for.

Customer Reviews

Amazing!

This is one of the best CD's I have heard in a long time. Especially one put out after the 80's. Great compositions, great arranging and orchestration. Players are all outstanding and it is good to see some good music out there still
