Soulful personal jazz Cathlene Pineda – Rainbow Baby

Soulful personal jazz Cathlene Pineda – RAINBOW BABY:   The players on the video below for jazz pianist Cathlene Pineda’s “Wild Geese IV” are different from those on her new release, but you’ll be able to become familiar with her precision piano skills…

…Cathlene has a few more video performances available if you SUBSCRIBE to her Cathlene Pineda YouTube channel, and hopefully, she will also post some videos of the current players before the album release on 5 June, 2020.

Joining Cathlene’s wonderful piano style are Kris Tiner on trumpet, Tina Raymond doing drums and David Tranchina playing Bass, and on songs like “Wonder Weeks“, the group paints a wonderful portrait of personal experiences that will reach right out and touch your soul… in one of the publicity sketches, she said of her own music that it is sometimes “deceivingly impossible“, but listeners everywhere will realize they are listening to a true piano genius!

In some spots on the beautiful closer, “The Collective Memory”, I’m reminded of performances I’ve heard from Myra Melford… Kris’s horn work on this one is totally solid, and the recording captures all the rest of the players superbly, too.

Of the nine (long) songs offered up, I (easily) voted for “Wild Geese II” as my personal favorite… Cathlene’s piano intro is reflective and full of emotion, and when the rest of the players join in, you’ll be totally enchanted, just as I was… I predict that this piece will be getting a LOT of airplay!

I give Cathlene and her talented players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99 for this superb audio adventure.  Get more information about the album on the Orenda records Bandcamp release page, or on Cathlene’s website.                      Rotcod Zzaj
