Spirited challenging jazz Lucas Pino – That’s A Computer

Spirited challenging jazz Lucas Pino – THAT’S A COMPUTER: This is the third release from Lucas and his No Net Nonet, though it’s my first listen to his excellent work… one of the best ways to get to know more about him, and hear him talk about this new release is to watch him…

…I didn’t see a specific YouTube channel for Lucas, though you can find much more of his work via this YouTube search.    On to the album now…

As you listen to the excitement Lucas & his crew (alto saxophonist Alex LoRe, trumpeter Mat Jodrell, trombonist Nick Finzer, baritone saxophonist Andrew Gutauskas, guitarist Rafal Sarnecki, pianist Glenn Zaleski, and bassist Desmond
White, with a guest shot from Chilean-born singer-songwriter Camila Meza) generate on tunes like the 7:12 “Sueno de Gatos” (Catwalk), you’ll hear why their tunes have taken an honored slot on my iPhone player… the keyword is “lively”, for sure!

The group has been together since 2009, and it’s clear as you listen to strongly emotional playing on “Film at 11” that they are intimately acquainted with each other through their music… tightly arranged and perfectly paced jazz that will make you think a bit more than usual… ultra-cool jazz.

The FUN they are having on Lucas’s “Horse of a Different Color” is what made it my personal favorite of the seven (long) tunes offered up… this really swings, & will have you ready to dance ’round the floor for the entire evening… SUPER jazz!

I give Lucas and his crew a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.98 for this splendid aural adventure… get more information on the Lucas Pino website.         Rotcod Zzaj
