Mas Cabeza: E=Mas Cabeza2 (2002)

Mas Cabeza: E=Mas Cabeza2 No stars How we rate: our writers tend to review music they like within their preferred genres.

They’re a tight little band, but they purvey a loose groove within their Latin-jazz frameworks. Bassist Ezra Gale and keyboardist Patrick Morehead represent one-half of the high-octane, Northern California-based large ensemble Bitches Brew. However, with this quartet effort, the underlying Latin theme signifies a launching pad for spacey dreamscapes overlaid with pumping rhythms! Morehead implements a dirty Fender Rhodes sound, marked by oscillating lines. Drummer Pepe Jacobo handles the lead vocals (sung in Spanish) as this band’s hip approach cannot be understated. They incorporate odd-metered rhythms amid Ezra Gale’s psychedelic guitar voicings on the spunky “The Running.” The quartet even fuses a freaky dub vibe with hazy, fuzz induced guitars and ethereal effects on the finale, “Los Cabezones Dub.”

And while the group minces humorous anecdotes with serious craftsmanship, conga player Alan Rivera establishes the paradigm for many of these pieces. Moreover, the artists have a little fun as they playfully reconfigure the standard “All The Things You Are.” Creative minds at large here! Recommended....
