#EssentialAlbums Read our Review of @BobbySanabria Big Band: Live & in Clave

Sixteen years ago Bobby Sanabria took his Big Band on the road and when they were in Birdland on May 20 in 1999, the indefatigable leader recorded the concert that produced this explosive record. Now Bobby Sanabria is known for his fiery energy as a…
This is very much Bobby Sanabria's record. His performance throughout has a tightness of organisation that is genuinely composerly and fiendishly brilliant.

#AlbumoftheWeek Review of @cesarpiano César Orozco & Kamarata Jazz: No Limits for Tumbao @AlfiRecordsGlobal

In his short note appended to the album No Limits for Tumbao César Orozco makes a case for the generous helping of Cuban and Venezuelan traditional forms – changüi, nengón and joropo – that he has melded into the music of the album. Well he needn’t have…
No Limit for Tumbao by César Orozco is endlessly entertaining and vibrant, and it is meticulously performed and recorded for lovers of every idiom of music.

#AlbumoftheWeek Read Our Review of @GabrielAlegriaS Afro-Peruvian Sextet: 10 -

A decade ago Gabriel Alegría called upon his drummer-friend, Hugo Alcázar, to make a record where the music of the coastal part of Perú – its Afro-Perúvian music would collide with the beckoning rhythms of jazz. Thus as the story goes, Gabriel Alegría…
Gabriel Alegría and his Afro-Peruvian Sextet have made the most adventurous albums that you are likely to be delightfully assaulted by anytime this year.

#AlbumoftheWeek Read our Review of Take Off by Cuban Pianist Ramón Valle -

It will not be surprising if you are drawn to Take Off, the 2015 recording by Ramón Valle. The reasons are two-fold. For all its imposing dimensions and grandiose final apotheosis (especially when viewed on the beautifully filmed DVD), there is something…
Most impressive is the matching of tone-colour to mood by Ramón Valle so that this music is perfectly balanced to its power, creating a beautiful disc.

#EssentialAlbums Read our Review of @PaquitoDRivera: Tico Tico @CheskyLabel -

Nothing – and I mean nothing; no track list and probably no ensemble either – is more suitable to the emotional intimacy and urgency and better suited to the agility and immediacy than these deeply compelling performances of Paquito D’Rivera on his debut…
Listeners will be surely be all but overwhelmed by the tremendously vivid, beautifully balanced music of Paquito D'Rivera on the beautiful "Tico Tico".
