Absolute musical alchemy Dimitri K – 7/8: This is my first experience with Dimitri K’s absolute musical alchemy, and it’s pure pleasure, folks… Dimitri K composed and produced the marvelous songs; the violin by Konstantin Dimitrov is impeccably played, and full of the zest that life can be… to get an intimate look at what the players are able to do, please watch the video of the sultry and intriguing “Interpretation of a Dream” first…
…you’ll find many more wonderful videos if you SUBSCRIBE to his YouTube channel, too… I did.
As a musician, player and publisher, Dimitri is recognized ’round the world as a master craftsman, composer and player, as you’ll see when you read his bio… the “odd time signature” he’s used for the album is full of mystery, and you’ll hear that on the title/opening track, “7/8“… the keyboard work from Alvin L. Giles on this piece is just astounding, and will hold your ears at attention from the opening note to the very last bar… KILLER lead lines on guitar from John Valeri really give the tune a unique flavor, too… I have no doubt that you’ll be hearing this one on jazz playlists ’round the globe!
You’ll have your own visions of the romance of Paris as you listen to the 5:35 “A day in Paris“… Rob Mullins’ piano does a lot to enhance the piece, and Konstantin Dimitrov’s violin evokes memories both joyful and melancholy.
“Blue Room” is a guitar/keyboard duo (Rob Mullins/John Valeri) that is certainly among the best jazz tunes I’ve listened to (yet) in 2019… I can easily see this song being nominated for (and WINNING) awards!
There was no doubt in my mind as I listened through the album for the third time that my choice for personal favorite would be the mellow groove on “Intuitive“… Alvin’s electronic keyboard is just superb, and will be the envy of keyboard players all over the jazz world!
I give Dimitri and his multitude of players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.99 for this diverse musical adventure… get more information about him at the Dimitri K website. Rotcod Zzaj
