The band pursues vivid imagery on the piece "Dreaming," featuring trumpeter Avishai Cohen and electric guitarist Juancho Herrera's softly stated exchanges atop a dirge like pulse that alludes to subliminally joyous overtones. The musicians' regal pronouncements, endearing melodies and multi-layered tonalities transmit a sense of well-being, evidenced on "La Viajera" and throughout. Therefore, this outing effectively presents the listener with a program consisting of the artist's shrewdly concocted compositions that touch upon a myriad of divergent frameworks. Essentially, Ablanedo possesses all of the goods necessary to become a major force in modern jazz. Recommended.
