* oscarfeldman uncompromising robust jazz * Oscar Feldman – GOL:  The core group on this fantastic CD release is… Oscar on alto and soprano sax; Leo Genovese doing piano, keyboards; John Benitez on acoustic and electric bass & Antonio Sanchez doing drums, with guest Guillermo Klein contributing vocals and piano on a couple of the tracks, and I’ll tell you right now – this is one of the most robust jazz sets I’ve listened to (yet) in 2017!  As you’ll hear on the beautiful “La Cancion Que Falta”, Oscar’s reeds reach right out and dig deep down into your heart, evoking emotions you thought were long buried… a soulful player, indeed!  Since the song samples aren’t available yet (release date is August 4th, 2017), I’ve linked in their amazing studio recording of “Nobody’s Fault But My Own”, so you can see/hear just how tightly knit their playing together is:

…a totally mellow performance, don’t you think?  I just loved the ultra-groove vibe they created on this one!

Even the closing tune on the album is smokin’… “I Feel Fine” (in fact the whole album) should be listened to with your headphones on, at least for the first sitting… their changes on this track alone make the purchase price well worth it… I just LOVED the piano on this one.

Of the eight tunes offered up, though, it Oscar’s 8:16 original composition, “Viva Belgrano” that got my vote for personal favorite… his alto on this ever-shifting tune, as well as the high-energy contributions from all the other players, is just stellar.  There’s no question but what Oscar and his compatriots have scored a MAJOR goal with this release… it gets a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED from me, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.99.  Get more information on the Zoho label page for the album.           Rotcod Zzaj
