Editors’ Notes

Cuban-born pianist and composer Fabian Almazan’s 2011 debut, Personalities, was a keeper. Almazan integrated jazz, classical, Cuban music, and other elements to create an album that's subtle yet striking. Rhizome, the 2014 follow-up, might even be better. Once again he works with the rhythm section of bassist Linda Oh and drummer Henry Cole, and he continues to incorporate strings and electronics. Yosvany Terry (chekere) and Mauricio Herrera (bata) make appearances on “Jambo,” which is a dazzling and thoroughly organic example of the way Almazan combines Afro-Cuban percussion, jazz trio, modernist string quartet writing, and electronics. There’s a version of Wayne Shorter’s “The Elders” that has room for handclaps, strings, and digitalia. A cover of Harold Arlen’s “Stormy Weather” is both mysterious and lush. The upbeat “A New Child in a New Place” has sweet solos by Oh and Almazan and features the violin of guest Ronit Kirchman. Camila Meza lends her voice and guitar to four tracks, including the closer, “Sol del Mar,” a lovely song fleshed out by Cole's brushwork and an effective string arrangement.

Customer Reviews

Spectacular

I cannot get enough of Fabian’s music! I first heard his music listening to Linda Oh and it totally blew me away. He has an outstanding sense of direction and musicality. The album is powerful and really takes you away. Can’t wait for more great music to come!!
