Lovely Latin improvisations Calabó – One Day At A Time

Lovely Latin improvisations Calabó – ONE DAY AT A TIME:  I consider myself very fortunate to be getting the most original music on the planet on a daily basis… on this album, you’ll hear multi-instrumentalist Jandro Rivas (from Puerto Rico) doing some truly lovely Latin improvisations that will make your day.

Jandro’s intention with the tunes on this very satisfying release was to improvise music that portrays a mental picture of a typical Sunday in a tropical paradise… as you listen to the image-filled notes on the sultry “Sunday Mist“, you’ll hear his skill (particularly on the bass intro), and see your own visions of the beauty in fading Sunday mist… I totally dug this tune!

Jandro plays all the instruments, except on “Lonely Cabaret“, where he’s joined by classical guitar player Danel Diaz… the duo really works well together on this song, and I expect that jazz DJ’s across the globe will be giving this tune some HUGE amounts of airplay.

It only took me one complete listen through the album to decide that my personal choice for favorite of the eight songs offered up is the 5:40 closer, “Children of the Moon“… a substantial groove goin’ on here, and the recording is flawless!

I give Calabó a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98 for this delightful new album.  Get more information on the BandCamp page for the release.               Rotcod Zzaj
