Gil Spitzer sweet soothing saxophone jazz Gil Spitzer – Falando Docemente

Gil Spitzer sweet soothing saxophone jazz Gil Spitzer – FALANDO DOCEMENTE:  It’s difficult not to make comparisons to soothing saxophone players like Stan Getz (from my earliest jazz listens) when listening to Gil’s ultra-sweet alto sax work, but as I listen to the wonderful reed work on “Bosa Antigua” (samples not available yet, as the album isn’t scheduled for release until early November, 2017) , but Gil’s playing is more “21st Century”, with straight-ahead notes and tones that will thrill any jazz lover worth their salt… plus, Gil is joined by a stellar cast of players (far too long to itemize here, so check out the Zoho Records page for the release).

The rhythm section on the 6:40 opener, “Angel Eyes”, will have you tappin’ your toes, but it will also bring back the “jazz thrill” that you’ve been missing out on… I just loved this one, and listen to it over & over again… Chico Pinheiro’s guitar solo on this one really moves the tune along, but with a tune that long, you also get to hear each of the players show their total jazz energy and dedication – just a lovely sonic experience!

It wasn’t difficult (at all) to decide my personal favorite of the dozen tunes offered up for your jazz edification… “Blues For Harry A.”… it’s an original by Gil (the only one on the album), and everyone “cooks” righteously through the entire 4:30 length of the composition… one of the best original blues tunes I’ve heard (yet) in 2017.  I give Gil and his folks a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.98 for this fine performance set.  Get more information about the album at the aforementioned Zoho Records page.             Rotcod Zzaj
