CEO Experiment With Kurt Rosenwinkel at The Sugar Club

The crowd rose to its feet, demanding an encore. Bubbling bass ostinatos announced Calmet's Afro-Peruvian flavoured jazz-funk workout "Foli." Driven by the drummer's infectious polyrhythms, Rosenwinkel put pedal to the floor once more with a flowing synthesized solo, inspiring Buckley and Osio to their most impassioned improvisations of the evening. Calmet, a tireless servant to the music, finally stepped into the spotlight, delivering an effervescent carnivalesque solo—the prelude to a knockout unison finish. The musicians took their bows to cheers, whistles and applause, having delivered a truly memorable set.

It will be fascinating to see where Rosenwinkel ventures post-Caipi, but his reputation is such that whatever he tackles will doubtless attract considerable attention. CEO Experiment, on the other hand, is only just beginning to make waves. High profile gigs like this will help but momentum, of course, is everything. The timely delivery of a follow-up CD and European dates would certainly help this original, highly talented quartet reach the wider audience its music merits.
