#Bloomerangs international collective jazz #Bloomerangs – Horizon Sunset

#Bloomerangs international collective jazz #Bloomerangs – HORIZON SUNSET:  This very interesting assemblage of players is truly international… from all over the planet, as in the United States, Uruguay, Argentina and Spain, and they’ve put together some of the most solid jazz I’ve listened to (yet) in the last year… just listen to the 5:46 “Low Ride” to get a feel for their ultra-cool style, and give you an idea of how global their span of players is… on this track alone, you’re hearing Tato Bolognini/drums; Marco Messina/bass & synth bass; Alfredo Monetti/piano; Ramiro Flores/alto & tenor sax; Daniel Zehringer/trumpet; Jeff Parker/trumpet; Chris Parker/trombone and Rodrigo Cotelo/guitars & scratch… (aw-right, I’ll bite… what the heck is a “scratch”, lol).  Truly exciting times for this old jazzhead; getting to listen to the best & brightest of players in the world.  One note, too… this is the VERY FIRST review I’ve ever done that was from a digital album… my thanks to Rodrigo for touching base with me & steering me to it.

I do have one word of advice for listeners, though… if you’re a big fan of bass – TURN the VOLUME UP for “It Shall Pass” – in fact, turn the volume up & keep it up for all the songs… the player credit list for this track features too many to list here, so click on the link to check it out… this song has a great flow to it, and I loved the bass intro with muted trumpet on the opening, as well as the high-spirited harmonica playing!

Another thing that attracted my ears to the band immediately is that all of the tunes are originals; no covers, only the raw & pure energy of artists who are more engaged because it’s their “own” music at stake… the best way to check that out is by watching their video for my personal favorite tune from the album – “Young Dads“…

I just loved Rodrigo’s guitar on this one, and the recording is excellent quality, as is true on the album as well.  I give the high-energy, high-talent #Bloomerangs a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, as well as an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.99 for their excellent debut release.  Get more information on the Big Round Records catalog page for the album.        Rotcod Zzaj
