Duduka Da Fonseca: Duduka Da Fonseca Trio Plays Dom Salvador

Read "Duduka Da Fonseca Trio Plays Dom Salvador" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

It would be something of an understatement to say that the music of pianist Dom Salvador served as a formative influence for drummer Duduka Da Fonseca. As a teenage musician, Da Fonseca absorbed every phrase and nuance that drummer Edison Machado put to wax on Salvador's immortal Rio 65 Trio (Philips, 1965). That recording, and that ...

Paolo Fresu & Omar Sosa featuring Natacha Atlas & Jaques Morelenbaum: Eros

Read "Eros" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

While the connection between Cuban pianist Omar Sosa and Italian trumpeter Paolo Fresu was established back in 2006, their partnership truly blossomed with Alma (Ota Music, 2012), a beauty of an album with a soft sell approach. That record--quite possibly the most moving item in either man's discography--prioritized heart over all else, and this follow-up date ...

Meeco: Beauty of the Night

Read "Beauty of the Night" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

While danger, intrigue and excitement are often born beneath a silvery moon, love, loss and regret seem to come first to Meeco's mind when his thoughts turn to the night. The Paris-based composer/producer gathered what can only be described as a dream team of jazz's crème de la crème to help him bring life to eight ...

Meeco: Meeco: Beauty of the Night

Read "Meeco: Beauty of the Night" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose

Extraordinary songwriter/producer Meeco's Beauty Of The Night comes with a hidden cautionary note which is not visible or audible until the first strains of the music is heard. It is an elementally sad album and a box of Kleenex may be de rigueur. However, this is not to say that the album is not beautiful. After ...

Meeco: Beauty of the Night

Read "Beauty of the Night" reviewed by Edward Blanco

Paris-based composer/producer Michael Christian Maier, alias Meeco, has never truly delivered a standard jazz album, preferring instead to craft musical projects that are creative, innovative and different from the rest, described as “neither classical nor jazz" (Jaques Morelenbaum). A follow-up to Perfume e Caricias (Connector, 2010), Beauty of the Night is Meeco's third disc and his ...

Omar Sosa & Paolo Fresu featuring Jaques Morelenbaum: Alma

Read "Alma" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Trying to keep pace with the musical projects of pianist Omar Sosa or trumpeter Paolo Fresu is an almost-athletic pursuit. Calling either man prolific is an understatement, but what's more impressive than the quantity of music they release is the quality of their output. Both have tapped into an eternal wellspring of creativity that eludes most ...

Omar Sosa: Bringing The World To The World

Read "Omar Sosa: Bringing The World To The World" reviewed by AAJ Staff

Pianist/composer Omar Sosa was born in Cuba in the first decade of Fidel Castro's rule over the island, and grew up listening to forbidden American jazz with his music school friends in secret, the radio discretely turned low, though eventually the rules changed and the music was broadcast in Cuba, too. After Cuba and a short ...
