Excellent emancipative jazz Albare – Freedom

Excellent emancipative jazz Albare – FREEDOM:  When it comes to guitar jazz, you’ll find few artists as diverse as Albert Dadon, aka Albare… he got very high marks from me for his “Albare Plays Jobim, Vol 2” album, and this new jazz adventure will strike you as the most excellent emancipative jazz you’ve ever listened to… here’s an older performance that you should watch and listen to first…

from the Albare YouTube music channel

In addition to Albare’s splendid guitars, you’ll also hear Phil Turcio – Piano, Randy Brecker – Flugelhorn and Trumpet, Ada Rovatti – Alto and Tenor sax, Phil Rex-Bass and Felix Bloxom – Drums, as you listen to songs like the lively “Lost Compass“, one of the most powerful jazz tunes you’ll hear in 2022… I predict this will be getting MASSIVE airplay!

When “mellow” is what you’re after, you won’t find any music better than the 5:11 “Sketches“… Albare’s gentle guitar against Phil’s sweet piano is superbly refreshing and relaxing on this performance.

You’ll be getting your “dance on” as you listen to the beautiful Latin-flavored “Sunny Samba“… after a wonderful guitar intro, Randy joins in on brass, then the tune opens up to the rest of the players… I have no doubt this song will be recommended for awards (and GET them)!

I had no doubt what my favorite would be of the ten tantalizing tunes Albere and players offer up for our jazz joy… the album’s title track, “Freedom“, starts off in a kind of pensive mood, but swiftly open up to some of the most liberating music you’ll ever have the privilege of listening to.

I give Albare and his players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99.  Get more information on Albare’s page for the album.      Rotcod Zzaj
