Music Reviews

Anyone who has read my music reviews knows that I have a passion for ANY type of music... the only CD's that don't get reviewed here are those which lack a high "EQ" (energy quotient)... we are very happy to bring you a new and updated site where our prime reviews can be viewed and shared!

Superior all original jazz dozen Pablo Embon - REMINISCENT MOODS: Pablo's piano & guitar work is superior on these original jazz dozen tunes, and will hold your ears at ATTENTION... though the song "Too Far Too Close" isn't on this album, it gives you a very nice "up close" view of Pablo doing his magic on piano... ...you'll find many more video performances if you SUBSCRIBE to Pablo's YouTube channel... do it now, I did. As for the new release, you'll find ultra high-energy tunes like the 4:13 "Non Stop" ...I've always been attracted to originals over covers, and Pablo just SHINES on this great tune... one of my favorites (so far) in 2019! This release features Pablo exclusively, but as you listen, you'll feel like a whole host of players is right there in your living room playing for you... just listen to the multi-layered sounds he pulls out for your aural enjoyment on the 4:39 "Ocean Deep"... a totally professional integration of bass with percussion and guitar that you'll find yourself playing over and over again. The feeling of floating above it all that Pablo conveys on "Airborne"; some masterful changes happen on this tune, too... I predict that this song will be getting some MAJOR airplay on stations 'round the globe! Of the twelve tunes Pablo offers up for your sonic wonderment, I found the 5:58 closer, "Out of Tears", to be my personal favorite... the song is full of life and the love of living it... in fact, I think this one will be recommended for an award in the original jazz categories. I give Pablo a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an "EQ" (energy quotient) score of 4.99 for this well-crafted (and highly entertaining) jazz set. Get more information on Pablo's website.
